Default Vinyl - Peter Ledermann - Soundsmith and DirectGrace Records

I attended this Connecticut Audio Society (CAS) meeting hosted by Peter Ledermann,
founder of Soundsmith Audio, and DirectGrace Records:

http://www.directgrace.org/Home.html

Here's a post with pictures about the visit:

Here's a youtube video about his direct to disc recording process where the funds go to
help rescue children in 3rd world countries:

His two record cutting lathes were purchased from "The Hit Factory" in NYC and one
was used to record the Beatles, Rolling Stones, etc. back in the 1960s.

I thoroughly enjoyed the visit and have to say that Peter Ledermann is a true
gentleman - Thank you Peter!

It was fascinating to see and hear about how Peter reverse engineered the B&O moving
iron phono cartridges and how he has also brought back a new and improved version of
the strain gauge cartridge. B&O now gets replacement cartridges from Soundsmith.

One of his phono cartridges reviewed in Stereophile:
