Quick Overview

The newly redesigned Grado Reference moving coil cartridge has had its coil design reconfigured, resulting in an even more impressive musical performance - truly reference standard. This improvement has reduced the effective moving mass of the cartridge's generating system by 17%. All this is hand-assembled within a machined, new processed, Australian Jarrah wood housing. 


  • Grado-Reference

The Reference uses a five piece OTL cantilever technology achieving an additional 5% tip mass reduction over the Platinum and Sonata models. The coils are wound with ultra-high purity long crystal (UHPLC) oxygen free copper wire. It also features Grado's true ellipsoid design diamond.
