Audio Nirvana is a curated selection of audio system and accessories personally hand-picked by Chris Bunjamin.
In 2012, Maurizio Aterini founded Gold Note with his wife Elena Basciano, partner Alessio Oronti, and a team of specialized technicians and engineers. Gold Note becomes a high-end audio brand that speaks a simple but evocative language in order to bring the best of Italian-made to the whole world. The spirit of their audio equipment stems from the fusion of past and future by combining avant-garde technological innovations with a design that seeks ties with tradition, namely Tuscany's artistic history and Florence's innovative Renaissance period.
This high-class low-output MC cartridge has been recently re-designed and the Mk II version now reaches new impressive output levels and impedance values. Housed in an elegantly shaped alloy body, the Machiavelli cartridge offers a perfect balance and great dynamics, making it the perfect host to enjoy your music collection. Machiavelli Mk II’s extra rigid cantilever handles a high-precision Line Contact diamond stylus-tip in the Gold model and a micro-elliptical diamond stylus-tip in the Red model, both developed in collaboration with Ogura, the inventor of the Line-Contact diamond stylus shape. At a price point where competition is fierce, the Machiavelli Mk II cartridge distinguishes itself brilliantly thanks to its exceptional dynamic performances and engaging musicality that will make all of your LPs sound terrific.
