Origin Live Champion Cartridge

'It is our hope that your carefully crafted, hand-made Soundsmith Origin Live Champion cartridge will bring you many years of listening pleasure. The simple fact is, when we sit at a microscope for hours making each one, that is primary in our thoughts…… we hope that each one will bring some joy to the listener.'' - Peter Ledermann - Soundsmith President

The Champion employs a very unique “Energy Distribution System” to insure that the energy gets into the cartridge body properly, and into the waiting tone arm to be damped. It is one of the features of the Champion, and one of the major contributing design efforts towards perfection.

Unlike other low output cartridges, the Champion is a six sided fully shielded cartridge, and being such, is one of the worlds most hum-free and RF free cartridges. When properly used with shielded cable from your tone-arm, there should be no hum whatsoever.


An advantage of this design is the inherent high level of channel separation. Unlike MC cartridges, a rotation of the generating element in The Champion (moving iron) due to manufacturing tolerances or aging does not affect the separation at all. Furthermore, unlike moving coil cartridges, Origin Live Moving Iron designs CANNOT rotate out of position, maintaining the critical azimuth position for the life of the cartridge.
