Clearaudio Essence MC Cartridge

The Essence MC incorporates the same aluminum-magnesium alloy with ceramic surface layer body material as our high-end daVinci MC and elevates our Concept MC generator design to new levels, applying even tighter specifications to every parameter. The boron cantilever, micro-line stylus and moving coil generator have been subjected to the most stringent scrutiny, ensuring superb dynamics, fine resolution and channel matching of greater than 0.5dB. Designed to match most MC phono stages, the Essence MC delivers natural tonality, three-dimensional sound-staging, vivid dynamics and captivating musicality.

Take the best and make it better"… sometimes the Clearaudio motto proves to be quite a challenge. Especially when it calls for a brand new cartridge design that will improve upon our entry-level concept mc cartridge but without breaking a key price point!

How did we do it? By taking the 'essence' of the concept mc design and applying even tighter controls to every element of its construction. The boron cantilever, the micro-line stylus and of course the Clearaudio-patented moving coil generator have been subjected to the most stringent scrutiny, thus ensuring superb dynamics, fine resolution and channel matching of better than 0.5dB.

The electrical parameters are such that the essence mc will match with almost any MC phonostage, guaranteeing superb results: natural tonality, three-dimensional sound-staging, vivid dynamics and captivating musicality. That's the essence of our new MC!
