The new Clearaudio moving coil generation with up to 100dB dynamic range
Clearaudio has significantly improved our fully symmetrical MC design, first patented in 1980.
We redesigned the generator in a revolutionary way by positioning and doubling the magnets (to 8 pcs.) so the coils are operating in a much stronger magnetic field. Furthermore we have chosen the strongest magnetic material available: super neodymium. Through these achievements, the efficiency has been raised by 30%, which results in an output of up to 0.9 mV at 5cm/sec. All models now utilize the improved V2 generator.
The new Micro-HD Diamond tip provides a hybrid parabolic geometry with a stylus radii of 0.008mm x 0.040mm. The total mass (0.00016g) is a fifth of the previous diamond stylus.
Cartridge body resonances, while tracking in the groove, are minimized through the twelve finger design of the mounting plate, each finger with a different radius. This is the result of our constant research and development.
The cartridge bodies of our 5 models: Goldfinger, Titanium, da Vinci, Stradivari and Concerto are made out of the following: gold, titanium, ceramic coated aluminum, Ebony and Satinee wood. The generator construction of the new moving coil cartridge generation is absolutely symmetrical: mechanically, magnetically and electrically, our unique design. All Clearaudio moving coils use our proven 24 ct. pure gold coils.
A clear breakthrough in analog music reproduction has been achieved with this new MC cartridge generation. The new generation is able to reproduce a dynamic range of 100 dB with a frequency response of 10 Hz up to 100KHz.
For the first time in 50 years you will see 100dB dynamic range reproduced from the vinyl record in the following graph. The following measurement, a trackability test at 80 microns, proves the 100dB dynamic range. The peak Level (blue graph) in relation to the record noise (green graph) shows definitely a 100dB dynamic range.
Output Voltage: .8 mV
Stylus Shape: micro HD
Internal Ohms: 32
