Clearaudio Concept MC Cartridge

Clearaudio is famous for their moving coil cartridges with their first patents and models developed in the 1970s by Peter Suchy. When developing their Concept turntable circa 2010, the goal was to create a high performance and high value MC that could be factory installed on the Concept tonearm with its magnetic bearing. The Concept MC fulfilled this with a cartridge that embodies the sonic ethos of Clearaudio. word word word word wrod

The Clearaudio Concept MC cartridge uses independent coils in a V configuration, similar to the separate symmetrical coil design used today in all Clearaudio moving coils starting with the Talismann v2. Clearaudio was a pioneer in the use of boron cantilevers and fine line styli, and the Concept MC uses a both to assure excellent trackability and resolution in its cartridges and turntables. Its MC generator uses dual high quality copper windings for an output of .4mV and an internal resistance of 11 ohms, allowing use with many high gain phono stages including the Clearaudio nano v2 and Clearaudio Smart v2.

Equipped with a boron cantilever, the Concept MC 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.
