Medium output, otherwise identical to The Voice. Kudos, accolades and many “Product of the Year” awards. The pinnacle of High Output designs from Soundsmith of course. Sotto Voce is our special medium output version.

The recently developed Zephyr MIMC follows in the footsteps of the highly successful high-output Zephyr II. Hand made and based on the world-famous Sussurro, capturing the gist of the latter's sonic signature at a much more reasonable price.

The truest testament to the quality and performance of any audio component is what others in the industry have to say about it. Find out why the Soundsmith Hyperion is the go-to cartridge for many of the world's most highly esteemed equipment manufacturers.

They Said What?

Is the industry half-asleep? Or are there other powers at work preventing Peter Ledermann's Strain Gauge pickup from being the most hotly discussed cartridge on the market? Either way, it's a scandal.
