Proclaimed "The Best Moving Coil" by The Absolute Sound: Clearaudio Goldfinger Statement MC Cartridge Delivers Reference Performance Via RF Shielding and 12-Magnet Array
The first cartridge with integrated RF shielding, the Clearaudio Goldfinger Statement MC phono cartridge is designed to play on the world's finest analog systems and reproduce the music on the greatest recordings ever made with unstinting clarity, liveliness, dynamics, realism, and responsiveness. Featuring 12 perfectly matched and symmetrical magnets – an unprecedented achievement – surrounding its coils. The Product of the Year Award-winning Goldfinger Statement allows systems to reach the long-unattainable dynamic range of 100dB. And by using 30% thinner 24-karat gold wire for the coils than utilized in its predecessor for lower moving mass, precision-milled gold mounting for the magnet array, and solid 14-karat gold body, Goldfinger Statement accounts for the ultimate in fine-tuned analog luxury. Clearaudio's world-renowned Micro HD diamond stylus accounts for superlative detail retrieval while a flawless diamond facia rounds out an instrument that sounds as spectacular as it looks.
"Simply put, Goldfinger Statement is the best cartridge Clearaudio has yet made – and, in Jonathan Valin's view, the best moving coil (a lot of) money can currently buy."
