“The Grado Prestige Red is proof that one does not have to spend large amounts of money for good sound from a phono cartridge.”
-James T. Frane / $ensible Sound magazine

The Grado Red 2 is hand-assembled by Grado’s team in Brooklyn, with some builders having over 25 years of experience. With the recent development of the highly received Lineage Series of cartridges, Grado was able to have a trickle down of technology and bring a new technique to the Red 2.

The Red 2 are hand-selected from Blue 2 production runs which meet higher test specifications. Approximately 10% of the run usually exhibits these specs and become a Red 2.

This updated series of cartridges offers excellent tonal balance, dynamics, and realism, for a most rewarding reproduction of vocals and instruments. Grado’s coil-winding techniques, using ultra high purity copper wire, which were honed during the development of the Lineage Series, have let the electrical circuits achieve unison between the four coils in each phono cartridge. This allows for a precise balance between channels and accurate stereo imaging.
