Your Heart's Desire
The design of the Statement3 has the diamond, boron cantilever, and jarrah wood work in harmony to bring this cartridge to life. Housed inside the jarrah wood is a special generator/stylus module that allows for a twin magnet system, reducing the chassis’ resonant frequencies. The Statement3 features a unique generating system that has the lowest effective moving mass of any cartridge, providing outstanding tracking on your turntable.
In the Details.
Combining newly developed coil winding techniques with decades-old disciplines, the four reconfigured coils find exact unison to create a precise balance between channels and true stereo imaging. A new four-step shielding process allows the isolation of the wire turns in the coils, and creates an unrivaled clear path for the signal to travel. The diamonds are cut to strict specifications to accurately ride the grooves on vinyl.
The Sound of Wood.
House of Jarrah
The Statement3 is the only cartridge in the Lineage Series assembled from Australian jarrah wood. Each wood has specific tonal qualities, giving the Statement3 its own unique characteristics while presenting precise harmonic tones. The jarrah housing is shaped in such a way that optimizes and evenly distributes mass across the cartridge.
Hand Assembled in Brooklyn
Each Statement3 sees final assembly by John Grado himself on his workbench. Every experience in our history has led to the creation of the Lineage Series. The Statement3 represents the craftsmanship and unwavering dedication to sound that has been Grado’s main focus since 1953.
