Grado has just announced a new line to their quality of phono cartridges. Meet Grado Prestige Series 2 phono cartridges.
New Release Grado Prestige Series 2 Phono Cartridges
The new phono cartridge is a third edition of the Prestige series and part of a continuing line of Grado’s entry-level line of cartridges that date back to 1953. Wow! That means the new Grado Prestige Series 2 phono cartridges can revolutionize the audio emitting from your vinyl record player.
Like all Grado products, the new line of phono cartridges are hand-crafted in Brooklyn and draw upon the premium design of its predecessors. They feature ultra-high purity copper wire which was honed during the development of the Lineage Series. Grado’s coil winding techniques are said to “let the electrical circuits achieve unison between the four coils in each phono cartridge. This allows for a precise balance between channels and accurate stereo imaging.”
Like all Grado phono cartridges, Grado Prestige Series 2 cartridges are powered by a twin magnet system optimizing the balance between stereo channels. All internal magnetic circuit parts are held to “extremely high tolerances” which create the desired stereo imaging. Grado’s patented Flux-Bridger design also allows the Prestige Series 2 to have one of the lowest effective moving mass generating systems and it is able to do so while creating a the full frequency range.
“Not many people realize this, but Grado Labs has been producing phono cartridges for close to 65 years and is the inventor of the stereo moving coil cartridge. Jonathan and his brother, Matthew, the newest addition to the company, intend to keep the Grado tradition of producing the finest cartridges and headphones we can,” said CEO & owner John Grado.
Grado Prestige Series 2 phono cartridges, ranging from The Prestige Black2, Green2, Blue2, Red2, Silver2, and Gold2, are available from $75 to $260 at Grado.
