Sound-Smith Hyperion Cartridge Produced Love At First Listen
By Michael Fremer Posted: Jan 12, 2013
Sound-Smith's Hyperion Moving Iron cartridge features an unusual cactus needle cantilever. The sound was analogous to this photo: clear, well-focused and loaded with detail. The Hyperion was used in a few rooms and all who had one and all who listened were enthused.
Soundsmith's Peter Ledermann was at the show but not exhibiting. I never did run into him. Perhaps he was out in the desert harvesting cactus needles?
