The Black and Green models use a three piece OTL cantilever technology, standard oxygen free wire in the coils and Grado's specially designed elliptical diamond mounted in a brass bushing. The Green model is selected from the Black production run and meet higher test specifications. Approximately 15% of the production run will meet these standards and become Green models.
"TheGrado brought out most of the tonal accuracy and excitement and, though I have heard better reproduced, that was only with cartridges costing 10 times the price." - Gramaphone / John Borwick
"If you thought a true "high-end" cartridge had to cost $100 or more, then you've never heard the Grado Prestige Black." - Opera News / Anthony Chiarella Vol.64, No. 8
