If I understood Soundsmith web, all Soundsmith carts need a special phono preamp.

The more basic Moving Iron cartridges are quality pieces and very capable trackers. They have a little lower than normal output right around 2.2mv therefore benifir from a little more gain than most MM cartridges. They are smooth and even sounding. The lower end aluminum cantilever elliptical should be a little fuller on the bottom and lower mids. Unless using a very heavy tonearm I would stick to there higher compliance spec, just my opinion.
