Direct Drive vs. Idler Drive vs. Belt drive
In my own experience distinguishing between excellent turntables using the same cartridge is difficult and likely more dependent on my mood than any specific difference in performance. true 
Lower end Soundsmith cartridges vs others in same price range?
Some bad info here. Yes Soundsmith is MI, but the replacement is factory not user. You're right, B&O cartridges manufactured by SoundSmith and some SoundSmith cartridges looks like the stylus is user replaceable, but they are not. ANYWAY it...
