About Akai replacement styli
AKAI was founded by Masukichi Akai in 1929 in Tokyo, Japan. Together with his oldest son Saburo Akai, he started the company by manufacturing the products in their backyard.
In 1948 the recording industry rapidly changed and there was a need for higher precision record players, as an answer to the demand AKAI developed the C-5 Variable Speed Motor, this innovative motor produced minimal noise and vibrations and was extremely popular by audiophiles.
Later on the company started manufacturing cartridges and styli among many other products such as radios, software and apps, MPC’s etc. with the purpose of helping artists express and explore the musical possibilities with the right tools.
