Grado Timbre Sonata3 Phono Cartridge
The Sonata3 does everything the Platinum3 can do - but does it better thanks to an intricate process while being crafted
Grado modified its four-piece OTL cantilever technology to achieve a 10% tip mass reduction over the Prestige Series. The Sonata3 uses ultra-high purity long crystal (UHPLC) oxygen-free copper wire in the coils, and a Grado-designed elliptical diamond.
Each Sonata3 is hand-built by Grado's team in Brooklyn, as it has been for decades.
