Clearaudio Concerto V2 MC Cartridge
With a dynamic range of up to 70 decibels and a total weight of only seven grams, the Concerto V2 MC qualifies itself for the top league of moving coil cartridges. Within this satin wood body the technology is outstanding, housing 24-carat gold coils and a patented eight-magnet array unique to our V2 range. Further champion-level ingredients are the boron cantilever and Micro HD stylus. A recipe to win the trophy of sound championship.
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 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.
