Grado Statement V2 Wood Body Cartridge
Making a StatementThe Grado Statement2 utilizes four reconfigured coils, a precision machined ultra-low mass generating system (lower than any moving coil cartridge), a boron cantilever and a diamond cut to Grado’s strict specifications. All this is hand assembled and housed in an Australian Jarrah wood enclosure that’s designed to optimize the mass distribution creating one of the world’s most stable tracking phono cartridges. The output of the new Statement2 measures at 1.0 mV. This optimized output results in maximum dynamics with today’s ultra-low noise phono stages. The top-end seems to extend forever with remarkable delicacy and speed, while the mid-range is rich and complex. The Statement’s portrayal of low frequency information and bass dynamics are solid, authoritative and powerful. Imaging is detailed and precise with a sound stage that wraps its arms around you and draws you into the music.

Utterly silent operation. Panoramic staging. Focused images. Tactile textures. Smooth bleach-free extended treble. Micro and Macro dynamic swings. Micro-detailed. Strong deep bass capability. Eminently believable.
P.S.- absolutely worth the price.
