5 of 5 Impressive low-cost mono cartridge October 25, 2019
Reviewer: Anonymous Person  
I am impressed. The MC+ has a very meaty midrange, plenty of top-end clarity, and tracks beautifully.

It also images quite vividly. Not only is there plenty of front-to-back spaciousness, but instead of centering the signal firmly in the middle (like a stereo cart summed to mono), it seems to fan it out across the two speakers.

5 of 5 Better than expected... August 15, 2017
Reviewer: Peter C. from San Francisco, CA United States  
Needed a high output, mono cartridge for old and new vinyl.  This was recommended by several users and Absolute Sound in 2013 and 2014.  Might be a little shy with the very upper frequencies, but extremely musical and much better than expected!  Note, Grados  do not work well on all turntables!  I have a direct drive, Yamaha turntable with a medium light, well-damped straight tonearm which works very well!  (Besides my VPI, main system turntable).

5 of 5 Excellent! June 16, 2017
Reviewer: Jim Knecht from Cape Coral, FL United States  
I purchased this to listen to new and used mono recordings for the first time in years..  Based on multiple ratings, this unit was the ideal choice in its price range.  In addition, I purchased the Grado 78 for those vintage 78s!.  As a professional musician, I appreciate the warmth of a mono recording and the natural sound that the MC+ provides.  The reviews of the Grado brand in comparison to other fine cartridges equals or exceeds those ratings.  Of course, what you hear is most important and each ear is different.  Very satisfied with both products.  I look forward to the purchase of upper level Grado cartridges in the future.

5 of 5 Grado mc+ makes mono' sound right. February 17, 2017
Reviewer: William Miebach from NY, NY United States  
I'm overall quite pleased with this cartridge. From the first spin my vintage mono's sounded "correct", with a nicely focused center image, and with an unexpected amount of depth and musical overtones present. Sweet mids and musical bass, with just a slight hint of bass lag perceptable on percusive jazz with a strong double bass line, but not really perceptable on classical. Tracks cleanly on inner grooves as well. Far superior to playing mono's on considerably more expensive stereo carts. There's literally no competion at its price. Thankfully it's good! Grado was responsive to questions after the purchase as well.
