GRADO TIMBRE SERIES REFERENCE 3
Achieving fantastic precision and control, the Reference3 does everything the Master3 can do - but it does it better thanks to complex and specialized processes as it is created.
While similar to its little brother in some ways, the Reference3 has a much longer build time , as it goes through extremely unique processes that only a few of our cells go through. This longer and more complex practice produces a more colorful and deeper sound. Working together with the special curing process and individual calibrations, we have the best cell in the Timbre Series .
“The arrival of a cured mahogany cartridge identical to the one I already owned found me unprepared for the next vaulting leap in my listening education. Within a week of auditioning the 0.5 mv Statement Reference, I began to believe that both my new and vintage vinyl had received a rite of purification, cleansed and made better than new. It was also as though the tiny hairs in my inner ear had been degunked, and in a stroke my hearing was perfectly clear.”
