    Description

    Zephyr MIMC ☆

     

    Zephyr MIMC was our entry-level to the high-performance world of Soundsmith's MC-pre-compatible, low-output cartridges. It brought a very nice portion of the performance available in our higher-end MC-compatible cartridges (Paua, Sussurro, Hyperion) to the more affordable sub-$2k category.

    Recently, Peter Ledermann decided to see if he could stretch the limits of the MIMC's performance even higher without stretching past the $2k price point ... little did any of us know how far he would be able to take it! The updated Zephyr MIMC ☆ smashes through sonic barriers with its new laser-drilled Sapphire cantilever and select nude Contact-Line diamond stylus! This is probably the most important Soundsmith model to have in your arsenal. It brings an astounding portion of the performance available only in our top-level low output cartridges, and it does it for just $1,999 retail (USD) !  

    We're so excited about this model that we've put together our best promotion ever for it - we call it the "Golden Ticket" program: We will be giving away Soundsmith products to customers who purchase the new Zephyr MIMC ☆ via a Golden Envelope inserted into each Zephyr MIMC ☆ cartridge box, ranging from EZ-Mount Screws to Strain Gauge 210 systems! We'll be spreading the news about this promotional program very soon on Social Media, with specifically-targeted focus to the countries where we are distributed. We want your customers to know all about this extraordinary product, and this outrageously cool promotion! 

    SOUNDSMITH - makers of the world's best and most unique phono cartridges - - and the WORLD'S BEST REBUILD POLICY!
