The Soundsmith Carmen MKII was created out of the desire to make a very high-performance design at an affordable price… Just slightly lush with a well-developed midrange, the Carmen MKII is surprisingly pleasing and will seduce you into late listening sessions. The stylus used is a part of what makes it special; an ultralow mass cut and polished into a true Hyper-Elliptical shape. The combination of low tip mass and the Moving Iron gives the Carmen MKII a tremendous resolution advantage over MC designs selling for more than twice the price. Housed in Soundsmiths new ES DEMS body design, the Carmen MKII delivers.
