Abbreviation: microseiki
Products: Model types Others

1961 wurde Micro Seiki ursprünglich als Firma für Feinmechanik gegründet. Die Produktion wurde alsbald auf Plattenspieler und Laufwerke verlagert.

A Japanese manufacturer of turntables, used to manufacture mid and high end turntables and electrostatic headphones of almost legendary quality in the seventies and eighties but turned to the manufacture of high end and reference class turntables in the 90's. Company ran into trouble in the late 90's and stopped making turntables and providing spares for their older products in 1999 with the exception of a high end variant of the 8000 turntable that was made to order well into 2001, the company still exists as a precision engineering workshop (much like competitors Avid Hi-Fi and SME ltd. funnily enough, but smaller) but no longer seems to be willing or able to supply turntable products."
