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.
