Product Description

The newly redesigned Gold1 have had their coil design reconfigured, and the effective moving mass of their generating system has been reduced by 17%. The Silver1 and gold1 models use a four piece OTL cantilever technology, ultra-high purity long crystal (UHPLC) oxygen free copper wire in the coils and Grado’s specially designed elliptical diamond mounted on a brass bushing. The Gold1 model is selected from the Silver1 production run and meets higher test specifications. Approximately 5% of the production run meet these standards and become Gold1 models.


I listened to the Gold1 on a few different arms and decks and it always provided a musically enjoyable experience. I enjoyed my time with the Gold1. It never became fatiguing and produced a satisfying level of detail. If you are looking for a cartridge in this price range the Grado Gold1 is an easy recommendation.
