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

Good alternative to original

While not an OEM replacement for the original toothed belt it fits fine and does the job. It does cause the adjustment knob to have a bit more resistance to turning but given the fact than an OEM belt isn’t available this issue is insignificant.

Very pleased

This is a perfect fit for my Aiwa old school shelf system. My new record sounds great. I was afraid to play it with the old original stylus so I ordered this one. It came supper fast and I am very pleased with my purchase. I would recommend LP Tunes.
