Used - Very few hours on this excellent cartridge. Max used 150 hours and can easily go for 3000 hours. This is a great deal.
Close to the mystery of music
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.
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.
