Grado Reference Reference1 Cartridge
This model is a special order and is usually dispatched within 2 weeks of order
The newly redesigned Reference1 cartridge has had its coil design completely reconfigured, and the effective moving mass of their generating system has been reduced by 17%. All this is hand-assembled within a machined, new processed, Australian Jarrah wood housing.
The Reference1 uses a five piece OTL cantilever technology achieving an additional 5% tip mass reduction over the Platinum1 and Sonata1 models.This ensures every tiny detail on the record is heard. The coils are wound with ultra-high purity long crystal (UHPLC) oxygen free copper wire.
The Reference1 is mounted with Grado's true ellipsoid design diamond.
