General:
This wonderful cartridge just came back from the local experts at VAS where it received a clean bill of health.

Under the microscope it shows low usage with signs it was well cared for.

On a capable turntable its sounds wonderful, with great detail, imaging, and response.

An absolute performer.

Despite being made of solid gold and sporting a diamond (a bit silly in my opinion), it is a formidable performer worthy of its pre-owned price.

MSRP is $17,500


More from Clearaudio:

This cartridge deserves to play the best recordings of all time.

In order to 'feed' the moving coil (MC) Goldfinger Statement with adequate music material, Clearaudio founded a music production department specialised in audiophile recordings of all genres.

The MC Goldfinger Statement is also the first cartridge with integrated RF shielding. The outstanding sound quality of this world-class cartridge is the stunning result of meticulously detailed development and fine-tuning of all of the important criteria.

The breakthrough came with the use of a 30 per cent thinner 24-carat gold wire for the coils, a precision-milled gold mounting for the magnet array and a body made of solid 14-carat gold – essential core components for the ultimate cartridge masterpiece.

The world famous Micro HD diamond stylus provides the best detail retrieval of all time. A flawless diamond on its facia beautifully adorns the MC Goldfinger Statement.

Peter Suchy calls this miracle of a cartridge 'our magnum opus'.

The SkyFi Testing Process for Phono Cartridges
We start by doing a detailed physical inspection under light magnification to asses the cantilever condition, its position in the cartridge body and the condition of the suspension. We also inspect any coil wires and the output connections to make sure it hasn’t been strained. We then perform a light cleaning with specialized agents and blow it dry with compressed air.

We then perform a more detailed inspection with our Wild Heerbrugg professional microscope. From there we can asses the wear and quality of the stylus and determine how much use it has had and if there are any mechanical issues. We can also identify if it needs further cleaning or care.

We then move the cartridge to a digital microscope where we take photo os the cantilever for future reference.

We then move to the test bench where we can check for continuity of each channel and resistance.

On certain cartridges and it the technician feels necessary we install the unit on a turntable and run a few test records to ascertain tacking ability, distortion and compliance.
