Gold Note
MAURIZIO ATERINI - FOUNDER - From a very young age the passion for music and its instruments of reproduction have marked my life so much to condition every choice I made. I desired to be able to offer the greater audience ideas and technical potentials with an all-Italian brand specialized in Hi-Fi created by a team with years of experience in the field. In 2012, with my wife Elena, my partner Alessio and a team of specialized technicians and engineers I founded GOLD NOTE, profiting from previous work experiences in the same industry. Together we created a High-End audio brand which since the start wanted to speak a simple but evocative language in order to bring the best of “Made in Italy” to the whole world. In my opinion, one of the greatest peculiarities of this brand is its “double glance”, our business vision which in some ways directed to the past, but at the same time to the future. On the outside, this approach is expressed by forms we give to our creations which prove a strong references to the artistic history of Tuscany though representing our point of view on the future of quality listening. The same thing is true on the inside of our products which are designed based on the cornerstone elements of the audiofile tradition but introducing new features and using components of information technology unknown to these kind of products until recently. The spirit of our audio equipment stems from the fusion of past and future. This means that we don’t see a contradiction in combining avant-garde technological innovations with a design that seeks ties with tradition. The Renaissance of our city Florence is a role model to be inspired by every day, a period of great technological innovation and new ideas, and this is the tradition we are interested in - it is our mission to reread it with deference and respect to obtain a direct connection with that innovative spirit of six centuries ago. Today Gold Note presents a line of unique, perfectly coherent and elegant products that allow you to set up an entire quality stereo system with turntables, electronics and loudspeakers. A philosophy that has allowed us to represent Italy, the most beautiful country in the world, as I have always dreamed of doing.

Gold Note Donatello Gold MC Cartridge

INSPIRED BY A CHALLENGE 

The main design behind the new Donatello MC cartridge was to engineer the best sounding cartridge of its category enabling a 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 to help the cantilever achieve the best tracking ability.
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.

EMPOWERED BY TECHNOLOGY

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 seat to increase structural rigidity.

Like GN top class 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 of your music.

Donatello Red features high internal impedance & gain levels, so that it can be easily matched with MM phono preamp while the Donatello Gold can be driven correctly by MC preamps, without the need of any Step-Up transformers.
