GRADO STATEMENT REFERENCE1 PHONO CARTRIDGE 0.5mV

The newly redesigned Statement Reference1 cartridge has its coil design reconfigured, and the effective moving mass of its generating system has been reduced by 17%. All this is hand-assembled within a machined, new processed, Australian Jarrah wood housing. The Statement Reference1 uses a five piece OTL cantilever technology achieving an additional 5% tip mass reduction over the Platinum1 and Sonata1 models. The coils are wound with ultra-high purity long crystal (UHPLC) oxygen free copper wire. The Statement Reference 1 model uses Grado's true ellipsoid design diamond.

"As a long time Grado user, I was quite shocked at what I heard; all of the Grado virtues, but with a lot more warmth and silkiness and much better dynamic contrast -- including a lower noise floor."
