Clearaudio has significantly improved the fully symmetrical MC design, first patented in 1980. It redesigned the generator in a revolutionary way by positioning and doubling the number of magnets (to eight) and using super neodymium, so the coils are operating in a much stronger magnetic field. Thus, efficiency has been raised by 30%, which results in an output of up to 0.9 mV.
The new Micro-HD Diamond tip provides a hybrid parabolic geometry with a stylus radius of 0.008 mm x 0.040 mm. The total mass (0.00016 g) 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.
