What HFL Thinks

EX500 MC – Analog Relax was founded by Yasushi Yurugi, an avid record collector, musician, jazz fan and innovative cartridge designer. A keen saxophonist, Yurugi has a deep appreciation of that sax maestro, jazz legend Zoot Sims, so much so that he founded the Zoot Sims Fan Club. That kind of musical obsession made him want more, knowing the vinyl groove contained yet more heart and soul to be revealed. “I never doubt that records have the best sound quality for listening to music, and I live with a collection of several thousand records and eight turntables.” This inspired him to create moving-coil cartridges which would exceed the capabilities of those available – a challenge he could not resist.
