Great cartridge!! January 24, 2019
Reviewer: Scott Rex from Ashland, OR United States  
I have been using the Reference Sonata 2 for about 50 hours now, and it's a remarkable cartridge.   I have it on an Acoustic Signature Wow XL table (TA-700 arm) to an Avid Pellar phono stage (48db of gain).  The combination of warmth, clarity, and dynamics is superior to any cartridge I've tried under $1,000.  Very highly recommended!  And the customer service from Grado was excellent - they called me to let me know details and options for shipping when they didn't need to.
