What's in a name? For Clearaudio, everything. The moniker signifies the company's purpose with the same transparency it brings to high-end music reproduction. Since 1978, every Clearaudio analog component, phono cartridge, and accessory has been designed at its in-house German factory. Adhering to the kind of precision-driven thinking and technological innovation practiced at several world-famous institutes and universities near its headquarters in Erlangen, Clearaudio remains synonymous with audiophile eminence, exacting performance, and specialty engineering. This is what commitment to excellence is all about.
