Clearaudio Concept MC Moving Coil Phono Cartridge
Reduce to the maximum
The Clearaudio Concept MC combines high-quality moving coil technology with a minimalist design.
Here, audiophile explorers discover what the optimization of magnetic circuits can deliver: this cartridge releases crystal clear sounds and represents nothing less than a revolution in its class.
Equipped with a boron cantilever, the MC Concept has channel matching to within half a decibel, 11 ohms internal impedance and is fitted with a Micro Line stylus – features normally unheard of in this price range. All of which adds up to make this high quality cartridge a bargain for the cost-conscious high-end fan.
Finally: Clearaudio MC Technology for Under a Grand!
Fitted as a standard option with the awesome Clearaudio Concept turntable, the Concept MC is also the perfect upgrade for any turntable. Fast and detailed with a surprisingly liquid midrange, the Concept MC complements any musical style and virtually any tonearm.
Gorgeous High Tech Body
More than just a pretty face, Clearaudio created an innovative aluminum-magnesium alloy body which has outstanding damping characteristics and none of the resonances of conventional materials. Coated with a layer of ceramic to eliminate high frequency vibration transfer, this also creates the Concept MC’s anodized look.
Built to the same high standards that have made Clearaudio MCs so revered, each Concept MC receives hand-selected magnets to ensure perfect channel balance. A Micro-line stylus is attached to an ultra-rigid Boron cantilever, a combination which results in vastly improved information retrieval and superior tracking.
The Concept MC is a wonderful cartridge riding that fine balance between excellent detail and a smooth tonal balance, outstanding dynamic range and surprising subtlety.
