| The Prestige Black2 cartridge uses a three piece cantilever system coupled to an elliptical diamond stylus mounted on a brass bush and Grado’s OTL, or optimized transmission line, technology to provide an ideal transfer of signal from the surface of the LP to the generator of the system. This technology rejects unwanted resonances and lowers distortion preserving the fundamental and harmonic frequencies of the music. This also helps keep noise generated by the motor system in the cartridge to a minimum.|
Grado’s OTL stylus/cantilever design makes records sound quieter, improves the height, width, and depth of the soundstage, and present more detail than previously obtainable.
As in all Grado phono cartridges the Black2 is powered by a twin magnet system that optimizes the balance between stereo channels. All internal magnetic circuit parts are held to extremely high tolerances creating the desired stereo imaging. Grado’s patented Flux-Bridger design allows the Black+2 to have one of the lowest effective moving mass generating systems while creating an excellent balance throughout the full frequency range.
