"Editors' Choice Award" 2009 - The Absolute Sound Magazine
Stradivari is synonymous with the absolute master-class of creating musical instruments. Clearaudio's moving coil cartridge named after the master violin maker allows a magnificent 90 dB dynamic range from vinyl.
The Stradivari won an "Editors' Choice Award" for 2009 in The Absolute Sound magazine.
"Like all other moving coil Clearaudio cartridges I have heard in the past, the sheer speed and tracking ability was leagues better than any other manufacturers' cartridge," notes Steven R. Rochlin at EnjoyTheMusic.com.
The long-aged ebony wood used for the main body provides great resistance to resonance and an excellent well-balanced sound. The boron cantilever and Micro HD stylus contribute to the remarkable performance.
The advanced coil assembly uses 24 karat gold and an absolutely symmetrical design.
