Soundsmith The Voice Cartridge


Product Description

Since its introduction in 2009, The Voice has won numerous „product-of-the-year“ awards and is – in Peter Ledermann’s words—“probably the best HO cartridge in production today“. Our design goal was to produce the lowest moving mass high output design possible using novel and advanced technology. Featuring a single crystal Ruby Cantilever and our Optimized Contour Line Contact Stylus, we developed a specialized metallurgy for the low mass moving iron system. A cartridge that disappears. After all, if it sounds like a “record”…… it’s wrong. The cartridge should bring your directly to the performance; not stand between you and the music.
