Grado Reference Platinum 2

The Grado Reference Platinum 2 phono cartridge offers wonderful overall performance, astonishing detail, and engaging presentation to help bring your music to life in a way you've never experienced before. Reduced mass, new magnets and coils, and and improved stylus-generator ring yield improvements across the entire frequency spectrum.

High-end analog performance doesn't have to be expensive. The Grado Reference Platinum 2 is made by hand from Australian Jarrah wood, which is cured through a intricate process to achieve premium sonic quality. The stylus is not replaceable, allowing for a redesigned one-piece circuit and reduction of chassis resonance.


"The Grado Reference is a great cartridge. It is the cartridge I will take into the twilight of analogue. It could well be the last - and the best - cartridge you will ever buy."
