Item: Soundsmith VPI Zephyr Moving Iron Phono Cartridge
Location: Sydney
Price: $400
Item Condition: 8/10. Comes with original boxes.
Reason for selling: Not required
Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, Bank Transfer
Extra Info:


Bought direct from the USA for US$999.00 + US$49.90 postage. 

I used the Zephyr with my now sold P3-24 and needless to say, it outperformed the Rega Exact by a huge margin. Used for about 10 months and replaced with a second hand Allnic Verito-Z, with an intention to upgrade my tt, and I have upgraded my tt since. Reserved for emergency but never used since. 

Rough estimation on hours used:  ~500-600 hours max.

The VPI Zephyr is the Best-Selling Cartridge Designed Specifically for VPI Tables

When two great minds like Harry Weisfeld of VPI and Peter Ledermann of SoundSmith get together, anything is possible. The result, in this case, is the VPI Zephyr by Soundsmith, the first cartridge to bear the VPI logo and the first cartridge optimized for all the unique parameters of VPI's JMW unipivot tonearms. The Zephyr is specifically designed to reduce "azimuth smear", a distortion artifact created by unipivot tonearms and eccentric records.

The VPI Zephyr is incomparable when mounted to a VPI JMW tonearm. An extremely faithful tracker, the Zephyr suspension allows the tonearm to work its magic, revealing a whole new level of performance from the combination. The Zephyr's warm tonal balance clearly complements any VPI table, its ingenious construction matching VPI's own exceptional design.
