Sonata V2 (Statement Series)
Statement Series Cartridges
The Statement Series of wooden cartridges are a fixed coil design, hand crafted at Grado Labs in Brooklyn. An intricate procedure of curing is done between production steps to achieve an optimal sonic level of quality. This series generator/stylus module is not replaceable* allowing a one-piece magnetic circuit & a reduction of chassis resonances. The Statement Series utilizes manufacturing and assembly techniques of fantastic accuracy / precision, and the result is virtual perfection. It should be used only with the finest level of equipment. Recommended tracking force 3/4 to 2 grams.
The Platinum2 & Sonata2 models use a modified four piece OTL cantilever technology achieving a 10% tip mass reduction over the Prestige series. It also uses ultra-high purity long crystal (UHPLC) oxygen free copper wire in the coils. The Platinum V2 model uses Grado's specially designed elliptical diamond mounted on a brass bushing, & the Sonata V2 model uses Grado's specially designed nude elliptical diamond.
