It was back in 1978 that Clearaudio first manufactured moving coil cartridges. This vast experience has been a significant benefit to our range of moving magnet cartridges. We have made massive improvements in areas such as mass-reduction, the profile, polish and finish of the stylus and in the damping of the cantilever.

Strict attention to construction methods along with extensive quality controls and hand-selection processes form part of the procedure for this stunning quality. We can assure you of flawless quality in all areas to guarantee exceptional linearity and trackability.
