Grado Reference Platinum2 MC Phono Cartridge

Engaging Presentation, Excellent Detail, Savory Delicacy, Wonderful Overall Performance: Grado Reference Platinum2 MC Phono Cartridge Benefits from Top-to-Bottom Upgrades

Providing high-end analog performance for a nominal cost, the Grado Reference Platinum2 MC phono cartridge touts wholesale improvements over its predecessor that account for its rich presentation, insightful detail, and precise tracking abilities. A four-piece OTL cantilever results in a ten-percent tip-mass reduction over the Prestige Series. New magnets and coils, a re-engineered wood chassis, and an improved stylus-generator ring yield sonic enhancements that stretch from the highs to the lows and everything in between. Reference Platinum2 is rounded out by ultra-high-purity long-crystal (UHPLC) oxygen-free copper wire in the coils and a nude elliptical diamond mounted on a brass bushing. No wonder this jewel of a cartridge sounds so good.

High-End Analog Sound, Hand-Crafted Build for a Very Reasonable Price Point
Reference Platinum2 is hand-crafted at Grado Labs from Australian Jarrah wood, which is intricately cured between production steps to achieve optimal sonic quality. Reference Platinum2's generator/stylus module is not replaceable, allowing for a redesigned one-piece magnetic circuit and a reduction of chassis resonances. Able to provide a generous slice of high-end analog, Reference Series2 has a recommended tracking force of 1.5 to 1.9 grams. Output measures at 5mV.
