TheSoundsmith Sussurro MKIIsees critical design decisions, realized. Lowest internal mass. Best damping. Esoteric stylus and cantilever.

Inspired by Frank Schröder, designed and individually hand made by Peter Ledermann, Soundsmith‘s Sussurro is a cartridge designed to specifically address the most intricate and critical issues of cartridge design. The new Sussurro MKII has a newly designed moving iron element to reduce moving mass by 70%. The resulting extremely low stored inertia, with a newly engineered damping system and innovative energy distribution path, allows proper coupling into the tonearm. So what does all this mean?? Low jitter? Jitter? You probably thought that was a term reserved for digital systems. Not so. Stylus jitter is responsible for the loss of detail and making a cartridge sound, well, like a cartridge.
