The idea behind the new Donatello MC cartridge was to
engineer the best sounding cartridge with solid machined
aluminium 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 aluminium.
Weighing only 7gram, it's perfectly damped and firmly blocked
to help the cantilever achieve the best tracking. 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. As our flagship
cartridges, Donatello's diamond tip is mechanically inserted and
blocked into a long, stiffened aluminium cantilever, handled in
a special titanium telescopic pipe to increase structural rigidity
There's more: like our top 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 in your music
Donatello Series feature high internal impedance levels, so that
they can be easily matched with any active phono preamp MM
and even correctly set-up MC ones, without the need of any
Step-Up transformer
