"Despite my adoration of Decca,Soundsmith and Koetsu pick-ups,HFN Feb ’21 saw me write, ‘TheGrand Master is so truly supremein resolution, transparency,spatial recreation, neutrality andany other parameter I can namethat it’s impossible for me to notsay what I usually try to avoid:“This may be the best cartridgeI’ve ever heard”’. This time, Icannot deny: the Grand MasterExtreme is even better."Hi Fi News Ken Kessler 2023 August

Cartridge

One-piece diamond cantilever

The Grand Master Extreme employs a 0.22mm square one-piece diamond cantilever, where the diamond cantilever and the needle tip are crafted from a single diamond. Typically, the diamond tip of the cantilever and the needle tip are bonded together using adhesive. However, with the one-piece diamond cantilever, the cantilever and the needle tip are integrated into a single unit, enabling a more direct transmission of information from the needle tip.
