Grado 8MZ V Stylus
Ratings & Reviews
by Duane Kramer
Fantastic. I have it in an old GF3 cartridge, which is equivalent to a modern Prestige Blue. I loved the Gold stylus that I used to have in it, but the 8MZ takes it much further. Still incredibly rich, warm, and musical, but noticeably more top-end clarity, sweetness, and soundstage/ stereo seperation. Sounds Grado-delicious and exceedingly clear on all styles of music. Deep, visceral, open and dynamic bass, balanced perfectly with a full and luscious midrange, into a sweet, clear, sensitive treble. No harshness, no unnecessary compression; only richness and clarity at once. Like I said, on ALL styles of music.
Impressive. Better stereo separation. Crisp and clean across all frequencies. Highly recommended upgrade.
This stylus will fit any of the modern Prestige Series carts (Black1 to Gold1) and has a finer tip than the TOTL Gold1. Inexplicably it costs less than a replacement Gold1 stylus! This stylus is an instant upgrade.
Perfect , well of course it is the original . Nice to hear that cart working the way it was supposed to .
