Thank you Clark and Paul for the info you provided. I've been to all of the web sites that Paul listed, and I did track down a Sao Win in Santa Barbara on LinkedIn. I've made an attempt to contact him through LinkedIn. I've done quite a bit of research on RIAA EQ for displacement-sensitive cartridges and find widely-disparate views on how it should be done, some of which just don't add up technically. I published an article on this subject in Linear Audio a couple of years ago.

His business was located in one of the California beach towns above Santa
Barbara; I'm thinking Goleta. Hope that helps.

Apparently these cartridges came about some time after I had to leave
ARSC activity. ca. 1980s. There is some information about them with this
Don't know if this might be useful. It cites the fact Sao Win built one,
but no date. The writer may have some information about Dr. Win.
