Med Output Cartridges
As colorful and ardent as the Hawaiian Seashell from which it is named and adorned, The Nautilus opens a window into LP playback that casts the entire spectrum of color and dimension. Nothing in the record groove is ignored. The selected contact-line stylus and Telescoping Aluminum Cantilever contribute to an ultra low moving mass system. The net result of Peter Ledermann’s design is an experience that puts the listener in the place and time of the musical event- no more/no less.
Soundsmith medium output cartridges require a minimum load of 1500 Ohms, and may be used all the way up to 47K Ohms. The capacitive loading is not terribly critical, but does have an effect. Anything from 100 – 400 Pf will help tune it a bit.
