New State-of-the-Art MC Cartridge with twelve magnets

The clearaudio cartridge range has a new flagship: the GOLDFINGER STATEMENT, heralding a new era in high-fidelity analogue music reproduction. 

Its for-runner: the clearaudio V2 set a world reference standard by using a unique patented configuration of eight magnets arranged in a ring, where conventional moving coil cartridges use only one magnet. This allowed a significantly reduced moving mass, which combined with the intense magnetic field generated by the magnets led to new levels of dynamic range, detail and channel separation. 

Clearaudio's commitment to ongoing research and development has pushed this technology even further resulting in the amazing new clearaudio GOLDFINGER STATEMENT.
The GOLDFINGER STATEMENTS`S 14 Karat gold body features no less than twelve magnets arranged in a 'clearaudio 12 Magnet Ring' configuration. The use of twelve magnets has allowed clearaudio to use pure 24 Karat gold for the coils, wound with wire 30% thinner than that used previously. This further reduces the moving mass and provides a generator assembly of incredible efficiency. 

The GOLDFINGER STATEMENT also incorporates the patented clearaudio MC construction principle, which guarantees absolute symmetry of all electrical, mechanical and magnetic parameters.
The GOLDFINGER STATEMENT is the first MC cartridge in the world to include integrated EMF shielding. 

The 17 gram cartridge body is machined from 14 Karat gold to provide excellent damping against resonances and features clearaudio's resonance damping 12-fingered top plate design from which the cartridge takes its name. Gracing the front plate of the GOLDFINGER STATEMENT is a beautiful cut diamond. 

The improvements incorporated within the GOLDFINGER STATEMENT lead to:
+ Higher output
+ Improved channel separation
+ Increased dynamic range
+ Ultra-high resolution of even the finest details.
Zudem ist der GOLDFINGER STATEMENT weltweit der erste MC–Tonabnehmer mit integrierter EMV-Abschirmung.

The best recorded, cut and pressed vinyl LP records, such as those produced by clearaudio in collaboration with Emil Berliner Studios and the Pallas pressing plant, are able to reproduce a dynamic range of 100 dB, which the GOLDFINGER STATEMENT is able to reproduce with stunning accuracy. 

The GOLDFINGER STATEMENT elevates clearaudio further above the competition re-confirming clearaudio as the world leader in analogue music reproduction.
