Soundsmith Zephyr MIMC Star cartridge

I am ready to pull the trigger on this cartridge to mount on my Scoutmaster, but the price is making me hesitate.

I have a Zu modified Denon DL 103 mounted on it now and it sounds great, but because of my mental illness I have the overwhelming desire to try the Soundsmith cartridge.

Anybody familiar with this cartridge? Do you think I will hear a significant difference between the two cartridges?

Any input will be appreciated.


Thank you, Tom

Significant... no.

I've had both a 103r and a couple soundsmiths... including and Aida on a fully outfitted Classic II VPI.

I wasn't blown away over a hotrodded Rega P5/103r.

It was Several thousand dollar more in investment that may have yielded 5% better sound stage... if that. I am going back to a simpler setup with solid core specifications.
