Grado Statement 1 Cartridge

State-of-the-Art Cartridge DesignÌ_åÇÌÎÌ__

After years of painstaking and exhaustive research, Grado has released the new Statement1 phono cartridge. Grado‰ۡóÁÌ_́ÌÎ_̴Ìös top-of-the-line Statement1 is one of the best cartridges of any type. Grado has pushed the envelope of phono playback to unheard-of heights, giving the Statement the sort of performance previously thought to be the sole domain of the best MC cartridges.

"I'm having way too much fun listening to my best LPs to worry about the technical stuff. You have to listen to music sometime, and the Grado Statement 1 has transported me to phono Shangri La. If you can scrape together the dough or even if cost is no object, buy the Grado Statement 1 and don't look back. It will redefine your analog experience and is a world beater design. Moving coils move over, there's a new kid in town. The Grado Statement 1 is state of the art and most highly recommended. Way to go Grado!"

Grado has really done their homework with the new Statement1, this is the best sounding Grado cartridge we've heard. Far more resolving than the Statement it replaced, the Statement1 is more authoritative, more open, more relaxed and more airy. Bass is deep, tight and tuneful, extending deeper and with better definition. Midrange, long a Grado strength, has greater presence and power and a new found subtlety. High frequencies are more open, revealing more air in every recording with a smoothness and texture that is utterly beguiling.

"The greatest virtue of the Grado Statement 1 is its balance of all aspects of analog reproduction...I challenge you to find a $3,000 cartridge that does this well handling everything. While I am fortunate to have this cartridge in my reference arsenal, if I were going to live with just one phono cartridge, the Grado Statement 1 would be it. Highly suggested."
