A Technological Breakthrough!

The Clearaudio Concerto is designed and built using the technological advances made in the new MC line. Gone is the more analytic sound of the older designs, which were voiced primarily for classic listeners. Now, Clearaudio has redesigned the entire line of MC Cartridges and they are fantastic. Still with lightning-fast transients and unprecedented detail retrieval, but now voiced for an overall sense of analog-like warmth and richness. In other words, these new cartridges are the best of both worlds: incredibly fast and dynamic, incredible extension at both frequency extremes and now with a mid-band richness that will send shivers up your spine! The Concerto may be the introductory cartridge in the line, but don't be surprised to find this diamond in the rough on the short list of every analog reviewer in the business. It's definitely on ours! Call about trading in your old Clearaudio cartridge for an even better deal!

“I was very impressed with the Clearaudio Concerto. It combined a rich harmonic palette, refined transient performance, excellent tracking, and outstanding resolution of low-level detail to produce an inviting, detailed, three-dimensional picture with all genres of music. It’s the best-sounding, most refined Clearaudio cartridge I’ve heard.”
-- Michael Fremer, Stereophile, July 2006

"From the start the Concerto demonstrated great clarity and dynamic punch...Overall, a detailed and at the same time very dynamic sound...An inevitable 'Best Buy.'"
-- Steve Harris, HiFi News
