Grado - Reference Series - The Reference V2 - Phono Cartridge  

The Reference Series of wooden cartridges are a fixed coil design, hand-crafted at Grado labs from a specially selected species of mahogany. An intricate procedure of curing is done between production steps to achieve optimal sonic quality. This series generator/stylus module is not replaceable* allowing a redesigned one-piece magnetic circuit and a reduction of chassis resonances.

The Reference Series utilizes manufacturing and assembly techniques of fantastic accuracy and precision, and the result is virtual perfection.

Should be used only with the finest equipment. Recommended tracking force 3/4 to 2 grams.

FEATURES:

The newly redesigned Master2 and Reference2 cartridges have had their coil design reconfigured, and the effective moving mass of their generating system has been reduced by 17%. All this is hand-assembled within a machined, new processed, Australian Jarrah wood housing.

The Master2 and Reference2 models use a five piece OTL cantilever technology achieving an additional 5% tip mass reduction over the Platinum1 and Sonata1 models. The coils are wound with ultra-high purity long crystal (UHPLC) oxygen free copper wire.

The Master2 model is mounted with Grado's specially designed nude elliptical diamond, and the Reference2 model uses Grado's true ellipsoid design diamond.
