“… a superlative all-around performer that will repay you with years of musical pleasure. Highly recommended!” - Dick Olsher, Enjoy the Music USA

“If you’ve been craving the perfect fusion of dynamics and fine detail, the Clearaudio da Vinci v2 is the cartridge for you.” - Jeff Dorgay, TONEAudio USA


A tribute to one of the great Renaissance men, the daVinci MC v2 moving coil was the result of our developmental work on our version 2 series as we explored modern material science. Super neodymium was one special material we used in the generator, creating a ring of 8 magnets with dual 24-karat pure gold air-core coils inside. 

For the daVinci body, an aluminum-magnesium alloy with ceramic surface layer was chosen for its lightness, rigidity, and self-damping characteristics. Realizing our twelve-finger design, each finger with a different radius, with this advanced material, provides enhanced low level resolution via its resonance control. The generator of the daVinci MC v2 is mechanically, magnetically and electrically symmetrical, and it uses our Micro-HD Diamond with solid boron rod cantilever.

The daVinci MC v2 moving coil’s forward thinking and musical qualities personify Leonardo Da Vinci as it represents an ideal balance in science, invention, art, and humanity.
