SG-210 Strain Gauge Cartridge System
The Soundsmith Strain Gauge system is for those music lovers who insist on making the cartridge and preamp completely disappear. Known for its lack of “colorisation”, extreme speed and neutrality, the Strain Gauge system transports you directly to the performance whether a live stage event or one that took place in the studio; you are there. By eliminating the generator mass, this cartridge is free to follow what was truly recorded into the grooves.
The SG-210 features both fixed line output, as well as 15dB boosted variable output to drive any amplifier directly if desired. 5 choices of user replaceable styli.
Power Supply Information:
Powered by two identical external analog DC wall type power supplies - 24 VDC @ 500 Milliamps. Two are supplied and are required for each SG preamp system. The use of external power supplies helps keep the noise floor extremely low, and allows compliance with power regulations for varied countries.
Replacement Styli: These are tuned for each cartridge and system. If you have one good stylus, we can build others to match by having the stylus and cartridge only. If you do not have one good stylus, we will need both the cartridge and electronics to build new styli for you. Styli can be easily moved in and out of the cartridge body by the owner.
