HiFi Phono Cartridges.


High End Phono Cartridges. Made in Germany.

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.

Each moving coil cartridge made by Clearaudio is an impressive demonstration of fine engineering and a milestone in high-end audio history: unique masterpieces with microscopic pure gold coils, handmade in Germany.

It is the result of highly devotional microscopic craftsmanship — mastery of perfection in design and material selection. Important ingredients are a body of long-aged ebony, a precisely ground twelve finger platform and coils of 24-gold.

Clearaudio Jubilee

The new Jubilee moving coil phono cartridge is the first Clearaudio cartridge with a body created from Panzerholz, a high-tech, natural wood product manufactured in Germany. This remarkable material already contributes to the exceptional performance of a number of our turntables, thanks to its high density, high strength and extremely low resonance. And yet, despite being dense enough to sink in water and strong enough to be bullet-proof, Panzerholz is also surprisingly light in weight.

Clearaudio Da Vinci

Classic design for contemporary art, which represents the current state of what is possible. The aluminium body of the MC da Vinci V2 is characterised by its extra hard, 30-micron thick ceramic coating that delivers extremely efficient resonance suppression. Its interior is so unique that it has been patented: eight magnets that provide massive focused field density guarantee perfect reproduction of audiophile recordings. The 24-carat gold coils of the MC da Vinci V2 are arranged in circular symmetry.

Clearaudio Goldfinger Statement MC

This cartridge deserves to play the best recordings of all time. In order to 'feed' the moving coil (MC) Goldfinger Statement with adequate music material, Clearaudio founded a music production department specialised in audiophile recordings of all genres.

The MC Goldfinger Statement is also the first cartridge with integrated RF shielding. The outstanding sound quality of this world-class cartridge is the stunning result of meticulously detailed development and fine-tuning of all of the important criteria. The breakthrough came with the use of a 30 per cent thinner 24-carat gold wire for the coils, a precision-milled gold mounting for the magnet array and a body made of solid 14-carat gold – essential core components for the ultimate cartridge masterpiece.

Clearaudio Concept MC - $17,500
