||5.5||The Prestige Gold1 & Silver1|
The newly redesigned Silver1 and 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.
What People are saying about the Gold...
|"It was lively and detailed but never edgy on vocal sibilants, and didn't over-emphasis leading edges on acoustic guitar."|
|"Beefheart's Clear Spot, the undoing of many an under-performing cartridges, didn't faze the Grado."|
|"It's a definite Best Buy!" |
|Hi Fi Choice / Alan Sircom|
|"The Prestige Gold's sound was readily identifiable, but after just a few seconds it didn't matter much, so engaging were the results."|
