Kudos, accolades and many "Product of the Year" awards. The pinnacle of High Output designs from Soundsmith of course.
Since its introduction in 2009, The Voice has won numerous "product-of-the-year" awards and is in Peter Ledermann's words "probably the best High Output cartridge in production today." Soundsmith's design goal was to produce the lowest moving mass high output design possible using novel and advanced technology. Featuring a single crystal Ruby Cantilever and their Optimized Contour Line Contact Stylus, they developed a specialized metallurgy for the low mass moving iron system.
A cartridge that disappears. After all, if it sounds like a "record" it's wrong. The cartridge should bring your directly to the performance; not stand between you and the music.
Also available in dual-coil mono.
"A Stunning Cartridge... Not only is The Voice a fantastic tracker, it's tonal balance is extremely neutral... I can't think of a cartridge in this price category that is more true to the music and even when comparing it to the stratospheric cartridges, The Voice still holds its own." - TONEAudio, Product Of The Year Award Winner
"The Voice will wring every last drop of performance from it at a price that, in a world where most competitors go for two, three and four grand (up to ten large), is extremely reasonable and probably a great bargain. It is easily a reference quality cartridge with the added edge of being supremely musical, which is why Peter is going to have to pry this thing from my cold, bloody hand to get it back!" - James Darby, StereoMojo
