Grado Prestige Blue3 Cartridge

{DESCRIPTION}
The Prestige Blue3 cartridge uses an enhanced four piece cantilever system coupled to a specially designed elliptical diamond stylus mounted on a brass bush.

Grados OTL, or optimized transmission line, technology provides 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.

The stylus/cantilever design makes records sound quieter, improves the height, width, and depth of the soundstage, and present more detail than previously obtainable.

This updated series of Prestige Series cartridges offers excellent tonal balance, dynamics, and realism, for a most rewarding reproduction of vocals and instruments. The coil winding techniques, using ultra high purity copper wire were honed during the development of the Grado Lineage Series, have let the electrical circuits achieve unison between the four coils in each phono cartridge. This allows for a precise balance between channels and accurate stereo imaging.

As in all Grado phono cartridges the Blue3 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. Grados patented Flux-Bridger design allows the Blue3 to have one of the lowest effective moving mass generating systems while creating an excellent balance throughout the full frequency range.
