Description

Grado fits a nude elliptical diamond stylus to this model, at the end of a relatively long cantilever which has been designed to keep tip mass to a minimum. That’s one way in which treble extension has been improved over the 20-odd kHz typical of old-school moving magnet cartridges, while the unusually low inductance of the generator also helps extend response and reduces sensitivity to cabling and loading capacitance. Tracking is fairly gentle at a recommended 1.5 grams. Grado’s Reference cartridges have long been coveted for their excellent rhythm and pacing, their warm tonal balance and their outstanding bass.
