Description Technical Specs

The Prestige Series of 78-RPM cartridges are designed for high output and excellent stability under even severe use. Each cartridge can be used for either archival or casual play without concern for undue wear on the record. All Grado 78 cartridges have a considerable reduction in tip mass resulting in extended frequency response while tracking forces can range from 2-5 grams. The experts acclaim these cartridges as virtually the finest 78-rpm cartridges in the world.

The Prestige model 78C uses a three-piece OTL cantilever technology, oxygen free wire in the coils and a specially designed, high polished conical/spherical 3 mil. diamond mounted in a brass bushing.

Seems very well behaved though I've used it only a few days. I'm looking forward to digitizing my whole collection!

Couldn't be happier March 3, 2016
Reviewer: Thomas Heller from Mine Hill, NJ United States  
I've known the Grado name for many years and have always associated it with some very excellent phono cartridges. I recently purchased the Prestige 78 to play a collection of 78"s from the early 1950's that I inherited from my dad. These records were in very good condition and had no scratches or gouges. However, I wasn't prepared for such a rich and beautiful sounding playback, and with only 3 grams of tracking force. I am completely satisfied and very happy with the sound!
