Sussurro MKII

The Sussurro MKII ~ critical design decisions, realized. Lowest internal mass. Best damping. Esoteric stylus and cantilever.

Inspired by Frank Schro?der, 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 tone arm. 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 loss of detail, and making a cartridge sound, well, like a cartridge.
