Grado Statement Series 2 – Sonata V2
Enveloped in a wooden chassis, these produce a warm, impactful, and accurate sound. This low-output series allows more information from your vinyl through its coils to hear what you didn’t know was there.
All Statement Series 2 cartridges offer a low mass generating system, and a diamond cut specially for Grado. In addition the Reference2 and Master2 are installed with a boron cantilever. All this is hand-assembled within a machined, Australian Jarrah wood housing. The output for the Statement Series2 measures at 0.5 mV. The low frequency information and its portrayal of bass dynamics are solid, powerful and authoritative. The midrange 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.
The Platinum2 and Sonata2 models use a modified four piece OTL cantilever technology achieving a 10% tip mass reduction over the Prestige series and ultra-high purity long crystal (UHPLC) oxygen free copper wire in the coils. The Platinum2 model uses Grado’s specially designed elliptical diamond mounted on a brass bushing, and the Sonata2 model uses Grado’s specially designed nude elliptical diamond.
