Soundsmith is a specialty audio manufacturer located about an hour north of New York City. Founded in 1972, Soundsmith has achieved an enviable reputation in the audiophile world for outstanding sonic quality and extremely high-value products. Perhaps best known now for their work restoring cartridges and for their Strain Gauge and Fixed Coil cartridges, every Soundsmith product is hand-crafted in Soundsmith’s Peekskill, NY factory by a carefully selected team of artisans and engineers.

 

 


 

 

Compare the pricing of re-tipping a Soundsmith cartridge to replacing the stylus on other high-end cartridges and you'll see why Fred's Sound of Music loves Soundsmith cartridges!
