Grado Announces New Upgrade to Their Cartridge Line

I would like to share some of the changes happening in the Grado cartridge line. The v3 cartridges will be formally announced in the coming days, most of you might know that we have been shipping them for quite a while.

The v3 cartridges take advantage of an improved process of isolating the signal through the coils, which allows a cleaner transmission, producing more detail and clarity in the output. We first developed this technology for our top end Lineage Series of high performance, low output cartridges. Our Statement3 cartridge is now part of the Lineage Series.

We have taken this technology through our entire cartridge line. Our Prestige lineup remains the same with a Black3, Green3, Blue3, Red3, Silver3 and Gold3. Our line of 78rpm, mono, and DJ cartridges will also incorporate the latest design changes, offering all Grado users the latest improvements and finest sound reproduction.

Rounding out the new line up of cartridges is the Timbre Series. The Timbre series is a consolidation of our Statement (low output) and Reference (high output) wood cartridge line. We have added an additional cartridge to this series, the Opus3. The Opus3 is the entry point to our Timbre Series offering the improvements and easy mounting characteristics of our other wood cartridges. In addition to the Opus3 the Timbre series includes Platinum3, Sonata3, Master3 and Reference3.

We are doing our best to continue shipping products through these difficult times. Let me know if you have any questions on this announcement or anything else Grado related.

Grado – Truly the World’s Finest! 

Happy Listening!
