Both Clearaudio Concept cartridges are also available separately for use on any turntable.

Clearaudio Basic Plus
The Basic Plus phonostage offers both MM and MC capabilities, with enough gain to drive the lowest output cartridges. It is a very simple unit to operate with a single button switching between MM and MC functionality. Another nice feature is it dedicated power transformer, which resides outside the actual phonostage to keep the audio circuit as quiet as possible. Clearaudio's Accu Plus battery power supply may be added at any time, allowing the Basic Plus to run on pure DC power for even greater performance. The layout of the circuitry is optimised for high channel separation, complementing Clearaudio phono cartridges. All of our phono preamplifiers use the Clearaudio non-magnetic MPC RCA jacks.

ClearaudioTalismann V2 Gold
A major improvement over its predecessor is the use of a patented configuration of 8 magnets for extremely wide dynamic range. The Talismann V2 Gold is fitted with a Micro HD stylus and a precision boron cantilever. The Micro HD diamond achieves a perfect contact with the record groove walls and by virtue of its extremely low mass, is able to faithfully reproduce even the finest musical details. The name "Gold" refers to the MC generator in which the coils are manufactured from pure 24-karat gold wire. The combination of these unique features sets the clearaudio Talismann V2 Gold apart from other MC cartridges in this price range.
