SoundSmith

SoundSmith

Although most entry level cartridges from all manufacturers are machine made, SoundSmiths are hand made. Even so, the reality is that when you are manufacturing something so tiny, that has to perform so well, all of them are NOT the same. If you don’t see this statement from other manufacturers, then this is a "secret" they don’t want to share, and quite understandably so.

  SoundSmith carefully hand build each and every cartridge, test them, and keep accurate records by serial number of their performance. Those that meet or exceed specifications are sold. But, there are always a few that don't measure well. These are broken down and some parts are used again. This does cost money, But the ones that DO pass the stringent testing out-perform many cartridges selling for two, three, four, or even five times the price.

  5. Soundsmith Sussurro Moving Iron MI Cartridge
    Rating:
    0%

    The Soundsmith Sussurro moving iron mi cartridge has an unbelievably low effective moving mass. Among the important benefits of that is the increased effect of the damping system - which means it can be reduced - a critical requirement for retrieving micro detail and not glossing over what you want to hear.
