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.
