    Re: Grado Master 2 MC Cartridge

    Just found this announcement of the Grado Aeon release from Positive Feedback, which still gives no explanation of differences from the TOTL Epoch. Also found these product listings from UK seller Audio Affair which show identical specs for the Aeon and Epoch, and state that the Aeon gives an estimated 90% of the Epoch's performance at half the price.

    Re: Grado Master 2 MC Cartridge

    Hi audio. bill.
    Thanks for pointing that information out.
    My main concern about the new cartridges is about the loading.
    30 years ago I decided that for a cartridge to give of it's very best it must drive into a suitable set of coils.
    The reviewer of one of the new cartridges does actually load into exactly what I own so I should be OK. I find this marriage critical in whether or not any cartridge will truly sing.
    What I did last time around when the 1 versions were released was buy the platinum reference and statement versions and the master statement version as back up cartridges and to gain experience with the products before the relatively high outlay of the statement 1 cartridge. I found good though the high output versions were the low output statement versions were considerably better and considering the starter cartridge price of £250 for the platinum statement cartridge it's value for money for the performance on offer astounded me. Maybe I owe it to myself to buy one of the entry level versions of the new range to play with. Even better that there is only one version of each model this time....
    I would still like to hear from anyone who has experience or owners of the new top of the range grado's or indeed owners of the statement 1 cartridge.
