The Koetsu cartridges in the Platinum series are made from mineral rock. The versions vary according to the type of stone used. Each cartridge is made from a block of rock selected by a skilled craftsman. For this cartridge, each block of Dumortierite (named after the man who discovered it, palaeontologist Eugène Dumortier) is chosen for its natural aesthetic and quality. The rock is cut into the final shape and carefully polished for a glossy finish. This process requires great expertise. It takes several hours so as not to crack the stone.

The electrical components are meticulously assembled to obtain a perfect magnetic balance and, hence, a finer, smoother and clearer sound quality. The coils are different from other models as they use a high purity (6N) silver plated copper compound. The magnetic system uses strong magnets: 'Platinum Magnets' that are made of a platinum alloy. This hypersensitive motor reacts to the slightest movement of the stylus in the groove. This results in a subtle sound quality and unrivalled precision. The stylus is conventionally fitted to a boron cantilever.

The  Koetsu Azule Platinum cartridge has a relatively low output level, which means that it should ideally be used with a preamplifier of the same high quality.
