After years of careful thought and painstaking design Grado is very pleased to offer their flagship phono cartridge.The STATEMENT utilizes gold coil wires, a boron cantilever and a diamond cut specially for Grado. All this is hand-assembled within a machined Autralian Jarrah wood housing. The output for the STATEMENT measures at 0.75 mV, the lowest output ever offered by Grado. 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. Michael Fremer commented in his Analog Corner, "It is among the finest cartridges I've ever heard at any price", Stereophile 3/99, pg. 41. Jonathan Valin stated, "I'm going to keep the Statement in my refernce system" The Absolute Sound, Issue 118.
