Grado Direct Price: $275.00


Timbre Series Options

Description Technical Specs
The Opus3 was built specifically to bring the entry-level and the mid-range phono cartridges closer together, creating an even tighter ecosystem of cartridges. Grado worked on the Opus3 as a cost-effective wooden cartridge while taking advantage of the techniques and processes used in the higher-end models. If taking a step up in your turntable setup is on your to-do list, start here.

The Opus3 is nestled inside a Maple housing. After years of experience with Maple from the Heritage and Statement Series headphones, Grado decided it was time to bring it to a turntable. Maple produces a vibrant and luscious sound, while staying consistent and clear. Through a variation of thermal aging processes, the housing gains the ability to better dampen and control the resonant frequencies.

5 of 5 Grado Opus 3 impressions April 12, 2020
Reviewer: Lawrence Hilgert from New Bern, NC United States  
This is a superb cartridge. Overall balance is excellent with vocals and acoustic instruments very lifelike. I don't believe any other cartridge at this price point or relatively higher could compete with the listenable character of the Opus3.
