The Grado Statement 1 cartridge represent the pinnacle of Grado's thinking when it comes to sound reproduction.
The STATEMENT1 utilizes reconfigured gold coil wires, a lower mass faster generating system, a boron cantilever and a diamond cut specially for Grado.
All this is hand-assembled within a machined, new processed, Australian Jarrah wood housing. The output for the STATEMENT1 measures at 0.5 mV.
The low frequency information and its portrayal of bass dynamics are solid, powerful and authoritative.The mid range is rich, complex and highly believable. Its top-end seems to extend forever with speed and remarkable delicacy. Imaging is detailed and precise with a sound stage that wraps its arms around you and draws you into the music.
