MC Concept V2
Reduce to the maximum
Clearaudio have been engaged in ongoing research into moving coil technology since 1978. Compared with moving magnet systems, moving coil cartridges have the potential to extract even finer details from the record groove and to respond to dynamic changes significantly faster. Since the early days of our research, the improvement of sound quality has been driven steadily forward by using new materials and seeking new solutions to well known problems, such as setting new standards in the parameters of dynamic impedance, inductance and capacitance. Ingenious design and extensive scientific experimentation have allowed us to bridge the gap in performance between moving magnet and moving coil cartridges.
Our top-of-the-range moving magnet cartridges incorporate many of the features of our moving coil cartridges. The Clearaudio MC generation V2 represents the state of the art for high-end MC cartridges.
Perfect symmetry for perfect sound reproduction: Clearaudio moving coil cartridge technology.
Only patented Clearaudio moving coil (MC) cartridges are symmetrical in all three important respects: magnetic, mechanical and electrical. Clearaudio MC technology is considered by both experts and music lovers to be the ultimate in audiophile music reproduction.
Since founding Clearaudio in 1978 Peter Suchy and his team have pioneered a series of novel ideas, subjecting every new development to meticulous scientific examination and ruthless testing. This tireless refusal to accept limitations and to strive toward new solutions and higher fidelity have enabled Clearaudio to reach peaks of innovation and technological development and to occupy a leading market position. Such outstanding specifications as a dynamic range of 100 decibels and a bandwidth of 20Hz to 100kHz speak for themselves. Countless hours are invested in our laboratories to make Clearaudio’s flagship products even better and in so doing, the standard for the world’s best to be redefined and many technological triumphs of analogue music reproduction have been achieved.
The Concept V2 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 Concept V2 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.
