The Donatello series is available in two models:
Gold: 0.5mV Low output MC, 470 load, 10-40kHz frequency response
Red: 1.8mV High output MC, 47k load, 10-35kHz frequency response
INSPIRED BY A CHALLENGE
The main design behind the new Donatello MC cartridge was to engineer the best sounding cartridge of its category enabling a solid machined aluminum body, light enough to be handled by every tone-arms. The results exceeded expectations!
After two years of continuous research, here is Donatello: a sophisticated, computer designed body made of machined aluminum.
Weighing only 7gram, it’s perfectly damped to help the cantilever achieve the best tracking ability.
Donatello’s ultra rigid cantilever handles a high precision Micro Elliptical diamond exclusively developed in collaboration with Adamant-Namiki and designed for top audio performance.
EMPOWERED BY TECHNOLOGY
As our flagship cartridges, Donatello’s diamond tip is mechanically inserted and blocked into a long, stiffened aluminum cantilever, handled in a special titanium telescopic seat to increase structural rigidity.
Like GN top class models, Donatello features long gold-plated pin connectors designed to connect perfectly with arm cinches, reducing energy dispersion and improving grounding for an ideal music background that will let you enjoy even the smaller details of your music.
Donatello Red features high internal impedance & gain levels so that it can be easily matched with MM phono preamp while the Donatello Gold can be driven correctly by MC preamps, without the need of any Step-Up transformers.
