INSPIRED BY A CHALLENGE

The main idea pursued by designing the Donatello MC cartridge was simply to engineer the best sounding cartridge of its category, enabled by a solid machined duraluminium body and light enough to be handled by any tonearm. After two years of continuous research, the results exceeded our highest expectations. With its sophisticated computer modeling design, the body made of machined duraluminium weighs only 7 grams.

The Donatello is perfectly damped to help the cantilever achieve the best tracking ability. Its high-precision micro elliptical diamond stylus-tip, designed for top audio performances, will let you enjoy even the smallest musical details.

 

TWO MODELS

The Donatello cartridge is available in two models: Gold with a low output level and Red with a high output level to be easily driven by MM phono stages as well.
