Grado Labs Reference Series Phono Cartridge

$1,200.00

The Master and Reference models use a five piece OTL cantilever technology achieving an additional 5% tip mass reduction over the Platinum and Sonata models. The coils are wound with ultra-high purity long crystal (UHPLC) oxygen free copper wire. The Master model is mounted with Grado's specially designed nude elliptical diamond, and the Reference model uses Grado's true ellipsoid design diamond.

What People are saying about the Reference...

"But, as the Grado blurb says if your system can be driven with a 0.5mV output phono cartridge, then you deserve to be listening to the new Grado Statement Series". I second that emotion: It is an absolute killer.
Hi Fi News / Ken Kessler
"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."
Hi Fi News / Ken Kessler
The Statement Reference is used by Musical Fidelity Sound Lab in their cutting room and in their mastering suite.
"The cartridges arrived today. Thank you very much!! Listening to the Statement Reference now…yowzers!! Sweet, this is what vinyl is all about. All the boys here are very impressed!"
John Wood - Executive VP - Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab
