Grado Lineage Epoch3 Moving Iron Cartridge

A cocobolo wood body with an elliptical diamond stylus, sapphire cantilever, and gold coil. Handmade in Brooklyn.

A first for Grado, the Epoch3 uses a sapphire cantilever with a unique generating system that has the lowest effective moving mass of any cartridge, tracking accurately on vinyl. Grado's patented Flux-Bridger generator design creates a superior balance throughout the full frequency spectrum with superb resolution and clarity, which produces an overall truer picture of the music

The Epoch3 has exceptional reproduction of vocals and instruments, with superlative tonal balance, dynamics, imaging, and realism. Its bass dynamics are solid and authoritative. Harmonics are extremely faithful giving the recording the correct color, and the mid-range is plush with resolution.

Each Epoch3 sees final assembly by John Grado himself on his workbench. These are built by hand in Brooklyn as they have been for decades.
