"The arrival of a cured mahogany cartridge identical to the one I already owned found me unprepared for the next vaulting leap in my listening education. Within a week of auditioning the 0.5 mv Statement Reference, I began to believe that both my new and vintage vinyl had received a rite of purification, cleansed and made better than new. It was also as though the tiny hairs in my inner ear had been degunked, and in a stroke my hearing was perfectly clear." - Lang Phipps, Audio Reviewer
The Reference2 model uses a five piece OTL cantilever technology achieving an additional 5% tip mass reduction over the Platinum2 and Sonata2 models. The coils are wound with ultra-high purity long crystal (UHPLC) oxygen free copper wire. The Reference2 model uses Grado's true ellipsoid design diamond.
Coil size optimization, cutting back on the number of turns, for sonic quaility!
Potting coil process which controls the resonance and noise even more than before!
Made from Jarrah Wood, which is much harder and denser, adding greater stability!
