    MY TAKE:

    If you prefer a warm, rich and relaxed tonal presentation from your vinyl, Grado cartridges are sure to satisfy. Fans of these cartridges find them particularly appealing in the midrange, while other listeners may prefer brands which offer more extension at the frequency extremes. - Galen Carol
     

    For over 50 years, Grado has been manufacturing some of the World’s great phono cartridges. One of the oldest family owned companies in the audio industry, Grado have been the leaders in design engineering for the high-end audio and recording industries.


    Holder of 48 patents, company founder, Joseph Grado is credited as the inventor of the stereo moving coil phono cartridge. He is responsible for more innovations in phono cartridge design than any other person in our lifetime and was inducted into the Audio Hall of Fame in 1982.


    Time honored manufacturing know how and painstaking attention to design detail result in previously unattained levels of pitch control, harmonic accuracy and bass quality to be achieved. All Grado headphones and cartridges are handmade to Grado's full performance specifications... nothing leaves the factory unless it sounds pure Grado.
     

    Presige Blue1 -

    For a bit more money than the Black1, the Blue1 takes you to another level of performance. The Blue1 shares the oxygen free wire in the coils and Grado's specially designed elliptical diamond mounted on a brass bushing but adds four piece OTL cantilever for increased performance.
