This Grado Red-2 is actually a Blue-2 which has been rigorously sorted.  After a very accurate test on the production of Blue cartridges, only 10% of the most effective become 'RED 1' cartridges. This is a Moving Iron cantilever technology cartridge, the preferred design of the New York-based manufacturer. The coil and stylus/cantilever assembly have had a facelift, reducing the cartridge weight by 17%. Ultra-high purity oxygen free copper wires in the coils. The elliptical stylus is mounted onto a brass cantilever. Like the entire production, it is assembled and tested in the company's historic production facility in Brooklyn, USA.


As always with Grado the sound quality is really impressive! The vitality and life that it reproduces are a reference in this range. It boasts very rich and precise timbres. The midranges have a strong presence and are very authentic. Overall, the reproduction enhances the texture of the music. Note that the transparency and highlighting of details are greater than the Blue-2. This cartridge is the musical proof that you can get a high-end product without killing your budget.
