Grado - Statement Series - The Statement V2 - Phono Cartridge

Grado - Statement V2 - Statement Series Phono Cartridge

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 optimal sonic quality. This series generator/stylus module is not replaceable* allowing a one-piece magnetic circuit and a reduction of chassis resonances. The Statement Series utilizes manufacturing and assembly techniques of fantastic accuracy and precision, and the result is virtual perfection. The Statement V2 Phono Cartridge should be used only with the finest equipment. The recommended tracking force is 3/4 to 2 grams.

The Grado Statement V2 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.

Grado - Statement Series - The Statement1 Phono Cartridge

GRADO MAKES THEIR STATEMENT!
After years of careful thought and painstaking design Grado is very pleased to offer their flagship phono cartridge. Grado has a high degree of pride in this cartridge and believe that it has so much to say about Grado technology, that they decided to name it the GRADO STATEMENT.

The STATEMENT utilizes gold coil wires, a boron cantilever and a diamond, cut specially for Grado. All this is hand-assembled within a machined Australian Jarrah-wood housing. The output for the STATEMENT measures at 0.75 mV. The lowest output ever offered by Grado. The low frequency information and its portrayal of bass dynamics are solid, powerful and authoritative. The mid-range is rich, complex and highly believable. Its top-end seems to extend forever with speed and remarkable delicacy. Imaging is detailed and precise with a sound stage that wraps its arms around you and draws you into the music.

Michael Fremer commented in his Analog Corner, "It is among the finest cartridges I've ever heard at any price", Stereophile 3/99, pg. 41. While Jonathan Valin stated, "I'm going to keep the Statement in my reference system" The Absolute Sound, Issue 118. Anyone who was impressed with our previous top-of-the-line effort, the Grado REFERENCE, will have their eyes opened wide after listening to the GRADO STATEMENT!

FEATURES:

The Statement2 utilizes gold coil wires, a low mass fast generating system, a boron cantilever and a diamond cut specially for Grado. All this is hand-assembled within a machined, new processed, Australian Jarrah wood housing. The output for the Statement2 measures at 0.5 mV. The lowest output ever offered by Grado. The low frequency information and its portrayal of bass dynamics are solid, powerful and authoritative. The mid-range is rich, complex and highly believable. Its top-end seems to extend forever with speed and remarkable delicacy. Imaging is detailed and precise with a sound stage that wraps its arms around you and draws you into the music.

* All wooden series cartridges are 1/2" mount. 78 RPM styli are not available with these series. All re-tipping on the Statement and Reference series will be done by Grado.
