One of the world’s most stable tracking phono cartridges!

The Grado Statement V2 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.

All Statement Series2 cartridges offer a low mass generating system, and a diamond cut specially for Grado. All this is hand-assembled within a machined, Australian Jarrah wood housing. The output for the Statement Series2 measures at 1.0 mV. The low frequency information and its portrayal of bass dynamics are solid, powerful and authoritative. The midrange is rich, complex and highly believable. Its top-end seems to extend forever with speed and remarkable delicacy. Imaging is detailed and precise with a sound stage that wraps its arms around you and draws you into the music.

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 grams.

"The Grado Statement V-2 is very highly recommended and I could live with it the rest of my life!" - Harry Weisfeld, VPI Founder, vpiindustries.com, June 2017, Read More!

"The new Grado has the lowest background noise and lack of groove noise I have ever heard. It is lower than the Atlas, Etna, Hyperion, etc. The sound the cartridge produces allows the low level information from the record to leap out to great effect from a jet black background. Most people remember reel to reel as a noisy but smooth medium. It is not. With a good machine and the right equalization, 60 year old tapes are relatively quiet while new 15 ips 2 tracks are “spooky” quiet. The Grado gives you a feel of what this is like, while tracking like a train on steel rails, as stylus chatter is virtually non-existent." - Harry Weisfeld, VPI Founder, vpiindustries.com, June 2017, Read More!

"...it is among the finest cartridges I've ever heard at any price..." - Michael Fremer, Stereophile Magazine, March 1999

"I'm going to keep the Statement in my reference system" - Jonathan Valin, The Absolute Sound, June/July 1999

Features:
• Coil size optimization, cutting back on the number of turns, for sonic quaility!
• New potting coil process which controls the resonance and noise even more than before!
• Lower effective mass of 17%, thus a quicker more accurate reproduction of music!
• Now made from Jarrah Wood, which is much harder and denser, adding greater stability!
