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 H.O. 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 you directly to the performance not stand between you and the music.
