according to a statement by Nahoko Kojima

The essence of Takumi is to gain a sublime understanding of the nuances of a particular art. To be focused and spend countless hours on one thing, and to carry on. It requires one to empty the mind and focus in a way that is simply not possible when still acquiring a skill.

Next-Level Sound

Craftsmanship and passion

If you purchase a Takumi, you purchase perfection. You purchase the result of craftsmanship and passion, and you can breathlessly enjoy your favourite music, played on an elegant-looking machine with a divine sound.

Vinyl has made a comeback. This also means that there are more and more turntables in circulation. More models are presented on the market, but do they also give you that warm feeling that you are looking for? Both technically and optically, you only want the best of the best.

That is possible with the Takumi TT Level 2.1, a turntable that can compete with models from higher price classes at a favourable price. So, what are you waiting for?

HISTORY

As a child I grew up with a grandfather known for his transformer factory. He was famous for his audio transformers and tube amplifiers. On Sundays, he would show me what he was doing and taught me about electronics. I was too young; I did not understand it all. Later, I finished my studies in Electrical Engineering and in 1993, I started my company named Rik Stoet Audio. The main products were tube amplifiers with the brand names Heart and StoetKit. Since then, many products have been created. The Tube Amps and CD players with tubes were mainly sold in the Netherlands, except for the Marantz “tubed-by-Heart” CD players, which were also available in the US. Three years ago, I designed a turntable called ‘Takumi’. This turntable partly uses third-party components, but the design is clever. It is simple but it has a great sound – I know how to engineer things. The hundred pieces produced sold out quickly on the Dutch market. I decided to continue the production, but this time it had to be an even better sounding turntable, with a great look, for a very reasonable price. This decision was the start of the Takumi adventure – it was the birth of the turntable you are looking at now. The Takumi became a passion.

5/5

In conclusion, we must say that Rik Stoet did a great job. He managed to design and construct a recordplayer that is complete on all fronts. Depending on the budget, the customer gets an excellent product for the price paid. The Takumi Level 2.1 exceeds its price level in musical quality, looks, and completeness.  When vinyl is your (new) passion, the Takumi TT Level 2.1 may very well be the solid centerpiece for years to come; a sound investment.
