GOLD NOTE DONATELLO GOLD MC PHONO CARTRIDGE

GOLD NOTE DONATELLO GOLD MC PHONO CARTRIDGE

Gold Note Donatello Gold

The idea behind the new Donatello MC cartridge was to engineer the best sounding cartridge with solid machined aluminium body, light enough to be handled by every tone-arms. The results exceeded expectations.
  • Features

    After two years of continuous research, here is Donatello: a sophisticated, computer designed body made of machined aluminium. Weighing only 7gram, it's perfectly damped and firmly blocked to help the cantilever achieve the best tracking.
    Donatello's ultra rigid cantilever handles a high precision Micro Elliptical diamond exclusively developed in collaboration with Adamant-Namiki and designed for top audio performance. As our flagship cartridges, Donatello's diamond tip is mechanically inserted and blocked into a long, stiffened aluminium cantilever, handled in a special titanium telescopic pipe to increase structural rigidity.
    There's more: like our top models, Donatello features long gold-plated pin connectors designed to connect perfectly with arm cinches, reducing energy dispersion and improving grounding for an ideal music background that will let you enjoy even the smaller details in your music.
    Donatello Series feature high internal impedance levels, so that they can be easily matched with any active phono preamp MM and even correctly set-up MC ones, without the need of any Step-Up transformer.
