5 of 5 Great cartridge June 4, 2020
Reviewer: Ralph from Centreville, VA United States  
I got the Platinum3 for my Pro-Ject Perspective turntable and tube S2 phonostage.  I m very please with the performance.  The sound has great details with very nice warm mellow vocal.  The sound image is just right with nice depth and excellent channel separation.  Instruments are very focus and projected.  As the cart continues to break in, the image is just getting better and a bit wider.  I m very happy with the Platinum3.  I might try the Sonata3 in my next purchase.

5 of 5 Wow - Platinum3 Is Awesome!!! May 20, 2020
Reviewer: Jeffrey Douglass from Apple Valley, CA United States  
I had been listening to a Grado Prestige Red for many years.  Even purchased a replacement Prestige Red stylus for even more years of listening.  It has been an excellent cartridge.  Finally, I decided to graduate to a higher level with my purchase of the Platinum3.  Wow, this cartridge is absolutely awesome.  Love it!  My enjoyment level of vinyl surpasses that of CDs.  What more can I say?

Phono equipment includes a Technics SL-1100A turntable and a SME Series III tonearm.  Preamp is a McIntosh C26, and power amp is a McIntosh MC7100.

For me, it is Grado forever!!!
