Clearaudio Goldfinger Statement MC Phono Cartridge

Pin It

The Goldfinger Statement is Clearaudio’s flagship phono cartridge, heralding a new era in hi-fi analogue music reproduction.

It features twelve magnets arranged in their patented ring configuration. The generator coils are painstakingly wound using pure 24-karat gold wire. These features collectively generate an intense magnetic field that result in:

• significantly reduced moving mass
• greater sound performance
• increased dynamic range
• ultra-high resolution of even the finest details

Additionally, the body is machined from 14-karat gold to provide excellent damping against resonance.

The Goldfinger Statement is also the first moving coil cartridge in the world to integrate electromagnetic field (EMF) shielding of the generator assembly, isolating unwanted noise from the ‘outside world.’

As a finishing touch, the Goldfinger Statement features a ½-karat diamond mounted in the front of the body.
