Same price as the BOHEME but a different animal. The new “Z/II” is a Low Compliance cartridge that was designed to work extremely well with both “unipivot” and standard “bearing” tonearms. The Z/II is the first SOUNDSMITH cartridge to utilize a boron cantilever coupled with a low-mass contact-line stylus providing the same speed and tracking ability that one has come to expect from this artisanal US company.
