Do you really price match?
We will match any e-Commerce (Online store) Authorized USA Dealer's advertised price. Please call us toll free (877) 370-1972 and alert us to where you found the product cheaper. We will verify, and if the site is an Authorized US Dealer- we will match their price. However, if the price is below the manufacturer Minimum Advertised Price (MAP)- we will have to get authorization to match the price. We will not violate our signed agreements that we have with our vendors.
What about price matching from an auction site?
We do not price match any auction or "grey market" site.
Be advised, any purchases from an auction or unauthorized (grey market) websites can lead to future issues in regards to warranty or support. Most manufacturers will not honor any claims or warranty from these type of sales. Spend your money wisely by purchasing from an Authorized Dealer. In a lot of cases, saving a little bit of money can cost you more after the sale is completed.

Grado - Aeon - Lineage Series Cartridge
Grado Labs is proud to release the second Brooklyn built phono cartridge in the new Lineage Series, the Aeon. The Lineage Series is a major step forward in phono cartridge design.
The Aeon, which sees final assembly by John Grado himself on his workbench, is the Epochs younger sibling that offers exceptional reproduction of vocals and instruments, with superlative tonal balance, dynamics, imaging, and realism. Grado’s coil winding techniques, which have been honed throughout the decades, have let them achieve exact unison between the four coils in each phono cartridge. This allows for a precise balance between channels and accurate stereo imaging.

All of the internal magnetic circuit parts are Swiss screw machined or molded metal, which have tolerances on the order of the best Swiss-made watches. The specially designed diamond stylus, for the first time in a Grado, is mounted on a sapphire cantilever that connects to the stylus generating system. The Lineage series features a unique system that has the lowest effective moving mass of any cartridges, while Grado’s patented Flux-Bridger generator design creates a superior balance throughout the full frequency spectrum with superb resolution and clarity, which produces an overall truer picture of the music. This is all nestled inside a selected cocobolo wooden housing.
In 1953, the Grado family started building cartridges on their kitchen table. Every experience in the family’s history has led to the creation of the Lineage Series. The Aeon represents the craftsmanship and unwavering dedication to sound that has been Grados main focus for over 65 years. The Aeon is now available for $6,000.
