Soundsmith Hyperion MkII Phono Cartridge

The HYPERION is the cartridge of choice for the most esteemed audio equipment manufacturers. Why? Because when they exhibit their gear at Hi-Fi shows, they want their turntable, amplifier or speaker systems to sound the very best that they can! Peter Ledermann‘s radical design utilizes an actual “cactus spine” for the cantilever. The naturally tapered shape, stacked columnar fibers and desiccated resin damping fit the exact parameters of the perfect cantilever: Low mass, extreme rigidity, internal damping, and tremendous strength. Each one hand crafted by Peter Ledermann - Made in  the USA.

The Hyperion features an industry first: A 10 year free retipping service for stylus wear to the original owner.

"In my opinion, the new Hyperion is without question the finest magnetic cartridge made today. Looking forward to the next few weeks of final break in." https://www.sound-smith.com/testimonials/hyperion
