GRADO ME+ PHONO CARTRIDGE
- 2015, 2016 Stereophile Recommended Class C phono cartridge.
Designed for true-mono performance inasmuch as the coils are physically oriented to respond only to lateral modulations,
Grado Mono cartridges perform with excellence in replaying monophonic recorded material - with less noise and more music. Each cartridge can be used for either archival or high fidelity listening.
The Grado ME+ cartridge uses a modified four-piece OTL cantilever technology, oxygen free wire in the coils and a specially designed, highly polished elliptical diamond mounted in a brass bushing.
