Clearaudio has significantly improved our fully symmetrical MC design, first patented in 1980.
We redesigned the generator in a revolutionary way by positioning and doubling the magnets (to 8 pcs.) so the coils are operating in a much stronger magnetic field. Furthermore we have chosen the strongest magnetic material available: super neodymium. Through these achievements, the efficiency has been raised by 30%, which results in an output of up to 0.9 mV at 5cm/sec. All models now utilize the improved V2 generator.
The new Micro-HD Diamond tip provides a hybrid parabolic geometry with a stylus radii of 0.008mm x 0.040mm. The total mass (0.00016g) is a fifth of the previous diamond stylus.
Cartridge body resonances, while tracking in the groove, are minimized through the twelve finger design of the mounting plate, each finger with a different radius. This is the result of our constant research and development.
The cartridge bodies of our 5 models: Goldfinger, Titanium, da Vinci, Stradivari and Concerto are made out of the following: gold, titanium, ceramic coated aluminum, Ebony and Satinee wood. The generator construction of the new V2 moving coil cartridge generation is absolutely symmetrical: mechanically, magnetically and electrically, our unique design. All Clearaudio moving coils use our proven 24 ct. pure gold coils.
The clearaudio "da Vinci" V2 is mechanical, magnetic and electrically completely symmetrical designed and handcrafted Moving Coil cartridge of the highest quality.
For a faster resonance conduction, the aluminium body is covered with an extreme rigid and 30 micron thick ceramic layer. The clearaudio patented construction of the MC cartridge "da Vinci" V2, has the lightest moving mass, due to integrated micro-gold coils, which are smaller and lighter than in a normal Moving coil construction.
Through the use of 8 magnets and as a result of the best possible correlation of the magnetic field - we have reached an enhancement in the dynamic range by over 30%.
The clearaudio "da Vinci" V2 is, with its exceptional design and outstanding technical data, a MC-cartridge of the absolute top class.
