The Statement Series of wooden cartridges are a fixed coil design,
hand-crafted at Grado Labs in Brooklyn. An intricate procedure of curing
is done between production steps to achieve optimal sonic quality. This
series generator/stylus module is not replaceable* allowing a one-piece
magnetic circuit and a reduction of chassis resonances. The Statement
Series utilizes manufacturing and assembly techniques of fantastic
accuracy and precision, and the result is virtual perfection. Should be
used only with the finest equipment. Recommended tracking force 3/4 to 2
The Grado Statement2 utilizes four reconfigured coils, a precision
machined ultra-low mass generating system (lower than any moving coil
cartridge), a boron cantilever and a diamond cut to Grado’s strict
specifications. All this is hand assembled and housed in an Australian
Jarrah wood enclosure that’s designed to optimize the mass distribution
creating one of the world’s most stable tracking phono cartridges. The
output of the new Statement2 measures at 1.0 mV. This optimized output
results in maximum dynamics with today’s ultra-low noise phono stages.
The top-end seems to extend forever with remarkable delicacy and speed,
while the mid-range is rich and complex. The Statement’s portrayal of
low frequency information and bass dynamics are solid, authoritative and
powerful. Imaging is detailed and precise with a sound stage that wraps
its arms around you and draws you into the music.
