You may call us maverick or disrespectful when we conflict with the commonly accepted laws of audio physics. However, it is this approach to research and development that allows us to offer the 'Goldfinger' with the awesome, unbelievable dynamic range of 100dB.
A radically new magnetic circuit, achieved using eight of the most powerful magnets currently available, assists Clearaudio in reaching this new level of performance.
This ground-breaking technology is incorporated into a resonance-optimised body fashioned from 16 gram of pure gold, carefully polished by the hands of master craftsmen. Internally, the completely symmetrical generator system is adorned with pure 24 karat gold coils and our new developed 0,00016 gram HD-diamond tip completes 'Goldfinger', making it the pinnacle of our achievement; a work of art, a masterpiece in technique and of breathtakingly linear and musical transparency.

[...] the Goldfinger is currently the best mc we've reviewed.
[...] i was more than bowled over by the performanceDeon Schoeman
[...] closer to 'just right.'
