Miyajima Labs Waza


It is a good sound of the balance.
The sound of Waza is an obedient feeling. And I reproduce straight, splendid music.
It is a heavy, clean grain of wood.

Miyajima Labs Shilabe


It is the best model of the cross ring method.
The African blackwood of the main body is used for the materials of a clarinet and the oboe.
It has beautiful luster with a heavy tree very firmly.

Miyajima Labs Kansui

I repeated an experiment to produce the cartridge which is better than Shilabe.
I changed some parts and a manufacturing process.
And, I completed cartridge "Kansui".
Kansui did not exceed all of Shilabe, but I felt splendor of Kansui while I listened to many records.
Balance, stillness, etc...
When you listen to a magnificent orchestra, I think that you understand it.

Miyajima Lab Step up transformator

ETR-800 is installed in a beautiful TEAK case.
The calking material is "paraffin".
1) I have regarded clear sound quality and the strength of the low level as
important not to spoil a good point of Shilabe.
2) Highest grade core material, permalloy 80 for the core of the transformer is used.
3) There is a switch changing Low,High,Pass.
4) There is a switch for demagnetizing.

I think that this stepup transformer ETR-800 works acts on not only Shilabe STEREO
and Premium MONO but also the cartridge of other companies effectively.

Demagnetization
When time passes, a stepup transformer and the cartridge do magnetization.
The demagnetizer short-circuits in OUT of the transformer.
It does demagnetization of a transformer and a cartridge by a voice signal
of the interchange.
