The Soundsmith Otello is Soundsmith’s entry-level Moving Iron design, realizing an affordable pathway into the world of high-performance cartridges. Build by hand like all Soundsmith cartridges, the Otello provides a perfect balance of tone and resolution at a great price. The result is a cartridge that is at ease with any type of music. Just slightly warmer than other Soundsmith designs, Otello yields a richness of timbre that is utterly beguiling with a level of speed and dynamics not often found in cartridges at this price. The result? A wonderful design that gives the warmth of MM and the light footedness of Moving Iron design.
