Gold Note, the Italian High-End manufacturer based in Firenze – is going to release Vasari in October, a new MM cartridge engineered to offer high quality at a competitive price.
The cartridge will launch in two models: Vasari Red and Vasari Gold, both featuring a unique body design, fully machined from solid blocks to achieve a high dampening factor, a rigid aluminum cantilever and a custom diamond tip.

“Vasari is the best MM cartridge we have ever created” – stated Maurizio Aterini, Gold Note founder – “We have always been involved in analog audio, so much that we even make limited edition LPs. We just really like vinyl and that’s why we want vinyl lovers to be able to upgrade their systems and enjoy a better sound.”Vasari Gold & Red

Maurizio also explained: “Vasari is beautiful and efficient at the same time: we used high quality materials and developed custom designed elements to deliver an outstanding performance. After all, when you are looking at ways to improve the listening experience the first and easiest step should be to choose a better cartridge, and that’s what Vasari is made for.”

Vasari will be available through Gold Note dealers from September 2016 at an MSRP of €195 for Vasari Red and of €350 for Vasari Gold.
