Soundsmith Mezzo Medium-Output HiFi Turntable Cartridge

The Mezzo is essentially a medium-output version of the Sussurro- a high-end low-output cartridge. It features a ruby cantilever and nude diamond stylus, engineered in the Contact Line shape. This special shape mimics that of the stylus used to cut grooves in vinyl and ensures maximum contact with your record. The Mezzo, like all the other cartridges in Soundsmith's Fixed Coil range, benefits from a drastic reduction in mass and noise returned to the record itself, and also avoids suffering from 'stylus jitter' to produce wonderfully clear and detailed sound. Each Mezzo is handmade in upstate New York by Peter Ledermann, President & Chief Engineer of Soundsmith.
