Soundsmith Cartridges are Hand-Made upon order and are ready to ship in approximately 30 Days!

An Unparalleled Warranty! Retip is only $550 and is guaranteed for a Full Year!

The Soundsmith Nautilus is a moderate output version of the very popular Paua Moving Iron Cartridge with natural seashell detail.

Soundsmith is pleased to announce the Nautilus Medium Output cartridge designed to fill the need for audiophiles that have moderate gain preamplifiers from such esteemed manufacturers as Conrad-Johnson and Audio Research among many others!

Peter Ledermann designed the Nautilus cartridge to perform flawlessly in preamps that utilize a FIXED 48dB-54dB gain structure. No longer is there any fear of overloading with a high output MM cartridge or having to ramp up the volume with a low output MC type.

Based on Peter’s now classic Paua Moving Iron design, the Nautilus moderate output cartridge gives the same level of performance as its sibling. Without any tradeoffs, this new medium output cartridge will breathe new life and alter expectations from audio system front-ends with moderate gain!

The laws of physics dictate how moving systems operate, therefore cartridges must strictly adhere to first principles to get sublime results. In accord with these laws, the Nautilus has an incredibly low effective moving mass, resulting in vastly improved damping.

The lowered inertia means less stored energy in the moving system, so that primary resonances that normally occur all but vanish. This moving iron design allows the required stationary magnetic parts to be rigidly held in exact position at all times. The fully shielded annealed case allows totally hum free operation, RF shielding, and extreme mechanical stability.

If you've ever wondered what it's like to play records using a world-class supercartridge, your time has come to try the Soundsmith Nautilus Moving Iron Cartridge!

An Unparalleled Warranty:
The Nautilus Cartridge is covered for a full one year. Retip is less than 15% of the retail ($550). An absolutely unheard of warranty for cartridges. Made in the USA, the Soundsmith cartridges are the best long term values around!

Features:
• Ultra low effective moving mass resulting in superlative transient and micro detail performance
• Telescoping Aluminum Alloy Cantilever / Selected nude Contact Line diamond stylus
• Composite body featuring impedance matched energy transmission system. For the first time it is possible to enjoy the virtues of our low effective moving mass architecture with the finest step ups and phono preamps for truly amazing vinyl replay.
• 1 Year Warranty
