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

Very good

Wanted to see if the xvs3000 worked. In a drawer with a broken stylus for 35 years. Yes, it works, fantastic. Without doubt I will try the Shibata. Hard to imagine it could be better. Against some large competition it sounds really good. Thanks

Nice Stylus for scratching! Good Quality.

New stylus for a heavy listener

I have a large collection of vinyl classical albums, which I listen to constantly. I have relied on LP tunes whenever my stylus wore out. I have never been disappointed in them. I own an old Zenith turntable and LP tunes stocks needles for it as well as belts. In addition, they have new or rebuilt turntables. The quality of the styluses is very high.
