The Absolute Sound - 2012 Editors' Choice Awards

Soundsmith’s top-of-the-line High-Output Moving Iron Cartridge. The VOICE overturns the myth that MC type cartridges are the only path to perfection. With 40% lower effective moving mass than the other Soundsmith high-output cartridges; The VOICE is faster, smoother, more musical and without the sonic “signature” that MC cartridges produce.


The ultra-low mass OC-CL stylus tip and the single crystal ruby cantilever contribute to an overall sonic presentation that has given The VOICE bragging rights as possibly the best high-output cartridge in production today!   The VOICE has been recognized industry-wide and has won numerous  “product-of-the-year” awards.
