Description

The Statement Series of wooden cartridges are a fixed coil design, hand-crafted at Grado Labs in Brooklyn. An intricate procedure of curing is done between production steps to achieve optimal sonic quality. This series generator/stylus module is not replaceable* allowing a one-piece magnetic circuit and a reduction of chassis resonances. The Statement Series utilizes manufacturing and assembly techniques of fantastic accuracy and precision, and the result is virtual perfection. Should be used only with the finest equipment. Recommended tracking force 3/4 to 2 grams.

The Grado Statement2 utilizes four reconfigured coils, a precision machined ultra-low mass generating system (lower than any moving coil cartridge), a boron cantilever and a diamond cut to Grado’s strict specifications. All this is hand assembled and housed in an Australian Jarrah wood enclosure that’s designed to optimize the mass distribution creating one of the world’s most stable tracking phono cartridges. The output of the new Statement2 measures at 1.0 mV. This optimized output results in maximum dynamics with today’s ultra-low noise phono stages. The top-end seems to extend forever with remarkable delicacy and speed, while the mid-range is rich and complex. The Statement’s portrayal of low frequency information and bass dynamics are solid, authoritative and powerful. Imaging is detailed and precise with a sound stage that wraps its arms around you and draws you into the music.

The Master2 and Reference2 models use a five piece OTL cantilever technology achieving an additional 5% tip mass reduction over the Platinum2 and Sonata2 models. The coils are wound with ultra-high purity long crystal (UHPLC) oxygen free copper wire. The Master2 model is mounted with Grado’s specially designed nude elliptical diamond, and the Reference2 model uses Grado’s true ellipsoid design diamond. These cartridges are individually calibrated.

The Platinum2 and Sonata2 models use a modified four piece OTL cantilever technology achieving a 10% tip mass reduction over the Prestige series and ultra-high purity long crystal (UHPLC) oxygen free copper wire in the coils. The Platinum2 model uses Grado’s specially designed elliptical diamond mounted on a brass bushing, and the Sonata2 model uses Grado’s specially designed nude elliptical diamond.

* All wooden series cartridges are 1/2″ mount. 78 RPM styli are not available with these series. All re-tipping on the Statement and Reference series will be done by Grado.
