The Aeon3 marries colour-correct harmonics with extremely detailed low frequency pitch information. Our patented Flux-Bridger generator design creates a superior balance throughout the full frequency spectrum with superb resolution and clarity, which produces an overall truer picture of the music.
A major step forward in phono cartridge design, the sapphire, diamond, and cocobolo work in harmony to bring this cartridge to life. The specially designed diamond stylus, for the first time in a Grado, is mounted on a sapphire cantilever that connects to the stylus generating system. The Aeon3 features a unique system that has the lowest effective moving mass of any cartridge, providing wonderful tracking on your turntable.
All of the internal magnetic circuit parts are Swiss screw machined or molded metal, which have tolerances on the order of the best Swiss-made watches. Combining newly developed coil winding techniques with decades-old disciplines bring exact unison between the four coils in each phono cartridge.This creates precise balance between channels and accurate stereo imaging. A new four-step shielding process allows the isolation of the wire turns in the coils, and creates an unrivaled clear path for the signal to travel. The Aeon3 is nestled inside a cocobolo housing, adding solid mass and a boldyet revealing signature sound. Cocobolo, known for fine instruments and those chess sets that look too nice to touch, is some of the most beautiful and tonally pleasing woods we have ever used.
