Wickedly Fast and Ultimately Revealing
The supercharged version of the Aurum Beta Wood, the Aurum Beta S Wood has superior tonal accuracy and detail. Quick transient response and excellent dynamic range makes easy work of the most complex musical passages, extracting previously unheard nuances. Layering of the soundstage is also increased as the creates a more realistic 3-D sonic image. The Aurum Beta S Wood also has greater bass extension, definition, and high-level dynamic capabilities.
"My current reference in affordable moving-magnet cartridges,
the Clearaudio Aurum Beta S combines levels of detail resolution,
articulation, and transparency that approached those of the more
expensive moving-coils, as well as the most neutral tonal balance of any
cartridge I've heard."
