The Black model uses a three piece OTL cantilever technology, standard oxygen free wire in the coils and Grado's specially designed elliptical diamond mounted in a brass bushing.

Upgraded Prestige 1 Model:
In the cartridge body the number of turns of wire in the coils have been cut back. This improves the path that the current must travel to carry the signal. The shorter the signal path increases the speed and lowers signal distortion thus improving the accuracy of the signal. The control of the resonance of the coils has also been improved. Grado has taken what they have learned from their wooden series and found a way to incorporate that into the Prestige series. With the potting of the coils, as in wooden series, this decreases vibration lowering noise and distortion within the coils.

In the stylus, Grado has vigorously worked and accurately lowered the mass of the moving parts in the stylus by 17%. This decrease in mass in the stylus allows for enhanced tracking with improved imaging, giving a quicker more accurate reproduction of the music. All this was achieved while keeping that world famous Grado sound, the warm, smooth, full bodied, non-fatiguing and rich sound qualities!
