Soundsmith The Voice

2.849

“The Voice will wring every last drop of performance from it at a price that, in a world where most competitors go for two, three and four grand (up to ten large), is extremely reasonable and probably a great bargain. It is easily a reference quality cartridge with the added edge of being supremely musical, which is why Peter is going to have to pry this thing from my cold, bloody hand to get it back!”- James Darby, StereoMojo — click here to read the complete original review —

Kudos, accolades and many “Product of the Year” awards. The pinnacle of High Output designs – from Soundsmith – of course.

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 High Output 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.

Also available in dual-coil mono.
