The Clearaudio Essence MC cartridge is designed based on the Concept MC cartridge. Clearaudio’s motto is “take the best and make it better”.


This phono cartridge includes the same components as its younger sister, however these components are sorted and assembled with even tighter specifications.

The boron cantilever, the Micro-line stylus, and of course the Clearaudio patented MC generator, were subjected to the most stringent scrutiny. This guarantees superb dynamics, a precise resolution, and a channel balance superior to 0.5 dB.

The body of this cartridge is manufactured in a magnesium and aluminium alloy with a ceramic layer on the surface.


Thanks to its weight and compliance, this cartridge is compatible with the majority of high quality tonearms.

Thanks to its electrical characteristics, the Essence MC is also compatible with the majority of phono preamplifiers.


The Clearaudio Essence MC cartridge guarantees a neutral tone, a three dimensional soundstage, and excellent dynamics. It favours transparency and detail.

An excellent, versatile, and musical low output MC cartridge!
