SoundSmith StrainGauge & Clearaudio Statement…Desired Analogue Combo

Many Moons Ago, In the Same Audio Den…

I was hoping to upgrade the Clearaudio Statement Turntable with a Phono System that truly bring meaning to the word “Statement”

I opted for the then much talked about SoundSmith StrainGauge Phono System.

The combination’s sound quality was, in short, “tame” for my taste. I believed that it’s gain was a tad low for my choices of music.

However, I have transferred the SoundSmith StrainGauge to another favored turntable, the Sperling L-1 Turntable, with its dedicated Tonearm, the Sperling T-1.
