GRADO THE REFERENCE 1 PHONO CARTRIDGE

Ships to US only

Grado's Reference1 cartridge is a fixed coil design, handcrafted at Grado Labs from specially selected species of mahogany. Unlike the Grado Prestige series, the Grado Reference cartridges have a generator/stylus module that is not replaceable thus allowing a redesigned one-piece magnetic circuit and a reduction of chassis resonances. The Grado Reference1 phono cartridges utilize manufacturing and assembly techniques of superlative accuracy and precision. The result is virtual perfection - the finest phono cartridges in the world! To hear the celestial performance of the Grado Reference cartridges, we recommend that they be used with the finest equipment.

The Grado The Reference phono cartridge features a specially designed nude elliptical diamond mounted on a brass bushing and a modified five-piece OTL cantilever technology achieving an additional 5% tip mass reduction over the Grado Reference Platinum and Grado Reference Sonata phono cartridges. The coils are wound with ultra-high purity long crystal oxygen free copper wire.

Oooga Booga

I went to the well and purchased a second stylus. Man, this one sounds better than the first. Even though they are the identical stylus, this second one has some kind of magic going on. I am getting even more detail and transient response. Background vocals are even more defined. This second stylus is 95 percent of the original Shure stylus sound. Must be some kind of oooga booga magic going on. Seriously though, this v15rs stylus is sounding superb. If I give it too much of a glowing review, there will be a run on this stylus. Shhhh, let's keep this among ourselves.
