Paint Your Own Masterpiece
Paint your own masterpiece with the Da Vinci V2 MC phono cartridge from Clearaudio. Da Vinci does it with music, not canvas, delivering an artful and ingenious performance that brings out the best from your vinyl treasures.
A Breakthrough in Analog Reproduction
Clearaudio has significantly improved the fully symmetrical design of its moving coil cartridges, which was first patented in 1980. Clearaudio redesigned the generator in a revolutionary way by positioning and doubling the magnets (to eight pieces versus the original four) so that the coils are operating in a much stronger magnetic field. And the company chose the strongest magnetic material available: super neodymium. Through these achievements, the efficiency has been raised by 30 percent, which results in an output of up to 0.9 mV at 5cm/sec.
A clear breakthrough in analog music reproduction has been achieved with this new MC v2 cartridge generation. The new generation is able to reproduce a dynamic range of 100 dB with a frequency response of 10 Hz up to 100 kHz.
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.
Twelve-Finger Cartridge Body
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 Clearaudio's constant research and development.
The cartridge body is made of ceramic coated aluminum. The generator construction is absolutely symmetrical: mechanically, magnetically and electrically. The moving coils in all V2 models use Clearaudio's proven 24 carat pure gold coils.
