Grado Labs Prestige Series Black 2

Grado's redesigned Black2 phono cartridges have reconfigured their coil design while the effective moving mass of their generating system has been reduced by 17%. The Black2 uses a 3-piece OTL (optimized transmission line) cantilever technology, standard oxygen-free wire in the coils, and Grado's uniquely designed elliptical diamond mounted in a brass bushing.

Every Grado Black2 phono cartridge is hand-made in Brooklyn, New York and tried for frequency response, channel balance, phase linearity, inductance, and resistance. An finally, every Black1 cartridge features user-replaceable stylii.
