Grado Prestige 1 Red Moving Iron Cartridge

The Prestige Red from Grado is one of the company's entry-level models and is an excellent solution to improving the sound of an existing turntable system, without breaking the bank. It's a well-built moving iron cartridge, that utilises four-piece OTL technology, with brass brushing. This durable construction is aligned with a specially designed, high-quality Elliptical polished diamond stylus to offer an exemplary tracking ability while retrieving every ounce of vinyl warmth from the very depths of your favourite vinyl recordings. 

Even the wiring has been intricately and meticulously thought out, comprising of oxygen-free, ultra pure copper to wind the coils. This coil design also utilises a newly developed enhancement that effectively reduces moving mass by 17%. This guarantees that all of the information hidden within your vinyl record is relayed back to your speakers with unprecedented detail and uncompromising sonic integrity.
