GRADO STATEMENT SONATA1 PHONO CARTRIDGE 0.5mV

The newly redesigned Statement Sonata1 has had 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 Sonata1 model uses 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 Statement Sonata 1 model uses Grado's specially designed nude elliptical diamond mounted on a brass bushing.

Reviews

"...the Sonata does a great job in reproducing the bass?Yes, the midrange was excellent. The upper octaves of the Grado Sonata did extend to the limits of my test records and sound very smooth. Very nice indeed!"
Anthony H. Cordesman - Audiophile Voice

"And though the Sonata showed consistent excellence with stereo staging and imaging, one always sensed a truth to the recording, without exaggerated effect."
Wayne Garcia - The Absolute Sound

Hyperelliptical stylus for Shure Me97HE cartridge

Worked perfect

Thanks for your fast service and the product is great, too.

I don't know what you receive my previous email. But the needle was broke off the stylus. Beside the point it didn't fit anyway. So is what I need is a stylus and a cartridge that is compatible with my turntable. Thank you look forward to hearing back from you

Stylus for Pioneer M-6500 turntable

Three Cheers

I now have better than twenty hours of listening with my new Jico V-15 Type Three HE from LP Tunes. I say “ three cheers”, for Jico’s V-15 Type Three. It sounded excellent from the start, and has continuously improved with play. Used first with a Dual 1229, then a Technics SL-5350, it provides strong bass, pleasing midrange and detailed treble. Better than my original Shure from 1974? Yes. In my opinion, it is definitely a worthy upgrade. If you’re fence sitting, I recommend you take the plunge.
