Grado Labs Prestige 1 Series Silver1 Phono Cartridge

Grado Labs

The newly redesigned Silver1 and Gold1 have had their coil design reconfigured, and the effective moving mass of their generating system has been reduced by 17%.

  • The Silver1 and gold1 models use a four piece OTL cantilever technology, ultra-high purity long crystal (UHPLC) oxygen free copper wire in the coils and Grado's specially designed elliptical diamond mounted on a brass bushing. The Gold1 model is selected from the Silver1 production run and meets higher test specifications. Approximately 5% of the production run meet these standards and become Gold1 models.

    • Four piece cantilever technology
    • UHPLC oxygen free copper wire for the coils
    • 5% of production will meet standards deemed worthy of Gold1 models
  • Frequency Response: 10-60
