Overview

The Grado Prestige2 series of cartridges features a resonance-optimized chassis and higher-purity copper wiring in the coils.

• You Deserve Prestige: The Prestige Series by Grado is designed for high output and excellent stability under severe use. A considerable tip mass reduction results in a frequency response to 50 kHz and beyond and tracking forces from 1-2 grams. Acclaimed by experts as virtually the finest pickups in the world at their price. Prestige models available in both 1/2" mount and P-mount. All styli in the Prestige series are user replaceable.

• Silver2 & Gold2: The newly redesigned Silver2 and Gold2 have had their coil design reconfigured, and the effective moving mass of their generating system has been reduced by 17%. The Silver2 and Gold2 models use a four piece OTL cantilever technology, ultra-high purity long crystal (UHPLC) oxygen free copper wire in the coils and Grado's specially designed elliptical diamond mounted on a brass bushing. The Gold2 model is selected from the Silver2 production run and meets higher test specifications. Approximately 5% of the production run meet these standards and become Gold2 models.
