SoundSmith - Sussurro Mk. II - Low-Output Phono Cartridge

SoundSmith - Sussurro Mk. II - Low-Output Phono Cartridge 

The inside story of The Sussurro Mk. II is that it is a cartridge designed to specifically address the most critical issues of cartridge design. Because the laws of physics don't change all that often, cartridges must adhere to first principles, and do it carefully - to get sublime results.

In accord with those laws, the Sussurro Mk. II has an unbelievably low effective moving mass. Among the important benefits of that is the increased effect of the damping system - which means it can be reduced - a critical requirement for retrieving micro detail and not glossing over what you want to hear. The unique Sussurro Mk. II damping system has been critically tuned as well ~ so that ALL primary resonances are absolutely tamed. Then all critical stationary parts are fixed rigidly within its tiny magnetic structure and the fully shielded magnetic case is engineered for extreme stability - holding all non-moving parts in exact position at all times.

Finally, an innovative energy distribution system designed to effectively transfer the mechanical energy away from the cantilever through the cartridge body into the tone arm.

SoundSmith is very pleased. You will be too - but be cautioned - when you cue down to listen to just one track, you will wind up playing the complete side and be very late for your meeting. Happens every time.
