The ultimate dream. For the first time in a cartridge,
the MC Goldfinger Statement features twelve magnets, perfectly matched and
symmetrical enabling the system to reach a dynamic range of 100 decibels. For
the Clearaudio engineering team this represents the fulfilment of an audiophile
dream that seemed long unattainable.
Goldfinger Statement is also the first cartridge with integrated RF shielding.
The outstanding sound quality of this world-class cartridge is the stunning
result of meticulously detailed development and fine-tuning of all of the
important criteria. The breakthrough came with the use of a 30 per cent thinner
24-carat gold wire for the coils, a precision-milled gold mounting for the
magnet array and a body made of solid 14-carat gold – essential core components
for the ultimate cartridge masterpiece. The world famous Micro HD diamond
stylus provides the best detail retrieval of all time. A flawless diamond on
its facia beautifully adorns the MC Goldfinger Statement.
Suchy calls this miracle of a cartridge 'our magnum opus'.Specs:

The Goldfinger comes closer than ever to neutrality, adding substantially to
overall transient speed and life like timbre without sacrificing any of
Clearaudio's traditional strengths in soundstaging, extension and resolution at
the frequency extremes, and astonishing low-level detail. Along with last
year's cartridge of the year - the Air Tight PC-1 - the Goldfinger is currently
the best mc we've reviewed. - JV /The Absolute Sound
