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 LP needle

The new needle for record player works well. The shipping was fast, reasonable.

turntable belt

delivery time was great - product works fine.
but $17.99 plus $5.98 shipping seems a bit much for what amounts to a large rubber band !

These Mounting Screw are correct for proper usage

If you need new mounting screws these will be what you want and need... They properly fit your head shells and cartridges. I bought some from Needle Dr. and they were so wrong... you could go to your hardware store and get the same.
