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.

Stradivari is synonymous with the absolute master-class of creating musical instruments. Our moving-coil cartridge named after the maestro allows a magnificent 90dB dynamic range from vinyl. The long-aged ebony wood used for the main body provides great resistance to resonance and an excellent well-balanced sound.

Stereophile Review

The low-mass Stradivari has a body of aged ebony and coils wound with 24K gold. It's low-to-medium compliance boron cantilever, fitted with a micro HD stylus, tracks at about 2.8gm . The Stradivari traded the Koetsu Vermillion's lush romantic sound for at "leaner, smoother, more literal translation of the recorded event. It's "decidedly smooth, liquid sheen produced a satisfying sense of musical recollection without inducing boredom.
