Clearaudio Aurum Beta Mk II Moving Magnet Phono Cartridge
Clearaudio moving magnet (MM) cartridges offer first-rate sound and value with a precision feel. Its MM cartridges undergo stringent quality control, achieving the tightest tolerance by individual testing and selection.
The patented design and manufacture of these cartridges is based on the newest technical advancements. Since 1978, Clearaudio's long term experience and knowledge in MC cartridges have led to the development of these patented MM phono cartridges.
One design highlight is the precisely finished large mounting plate featuring an absolutely flat top surface. This offers an optimal mechanical connection to the tonearm headshell for excellent dynamics and extended bass.
The Clearaudio MM phono cartridges are available in two versions of this mounting plate: Stainless steel and Fernambik wood.
Clearaudio moving magnet phono cartridges are precision products that are held to the most stringent quality control standards. During the patented assembly process, Clearaudio hand selects materials that are held to the tightest tolerances. The mounting plate of the Alpha, Beta, and Beta S cartridges are made of a special resonance-free lead alloy material. The Virtuoso Wood uses the special Fernambuk-wood that is available only in the Bavarian Black Forest.
Clearaudio Moving Magnet phono cartridges distinguish themselves in a long lifespan, and a replaceable cantilever. An extremely linear frequency response, and an exceptional dynamic response insure a very uniform soundstage. Clearaudio MM cartridges are compatible with virtually all tonearms.
