Soundsmith Zepher MkIII Cartridge
The Zephyr MK III [Zephyr Mark Three] formerly Zephyr MK II has achieved what no other cartridge has done since its inception; rapid recognition as a leading force in phono cartridge design and performance.
The Soundsmith Zephyr MkIII phono cartridge employs “Trickle Down” Technology from a unique Energy Distribution System within the cartridge body as used in the Soundsmith’s well received high end Sussurro Cartridge. The Zephyr MkIII is built using a selected “low mass contact line diamond” stylus design, mounted on an Aluminum cantilever capable of truly remarkable separation, sound stage and imaging. The composite body and unique energy distribution system contributes to the Zephyr MkIIs ability to produce high-end performance from a moderately priced cartridge. The Zephyr MkIII will provide a level of clarity and beauty that will make you take out your record collection and listen to it all over again.
Also available in dual-coil mono.
