The MR range has been developed as a direct result of the 2 year research programme conducted between
ClarityCap and the world renowned Acoustics Research Centre at the University of Salford.
No stone was left unturned; the research encompassed all of the materials used in audio
capacitors and any existing performance data together with analysis of manufacturing processes
and techniques. The crucial factor to emerge was the effect that mechanical resonances within
a capacitor have on sound quality and the importance of reducing or controlling a capacitor's sonic output.
The MR range harnesses all of the knowledge gathered throughout the research programme
and offers a superior product based upon science and research. In practice the MR range has
found acclaim with industry experts, OEM's and audiophiles for its spatiality and excellent separation.
The capacitor employs a non standard polypropylene film, ultra pure aluminium metallisation
and is housed in a coloured acrylic tube, the result of which is a capacitor which virtually
eliminates internal sonic resonance. Terminals are hand soldered tinned copper. As a result
the component is not offered with different colour schemes.
A guaranteed 3% tolerance ensures component to component consistency for a balanced
system and reproducibility across production runs.
Claritycap’s unique CopperConnect technology addresses a hitherto under explored area
of audio capacitor performance. Dielectric, electrode and lead wire materials have all been extensively
optimised over the years. Connection of capacitor electrodes to the leads has always relied on thermal
arc spray of tin-zinc, which results in hundreds of thousands of oxidised grain boundaries introducing;
distortion and phase shifts at boundary crossings and increasing propagation impedance with diameter.
CopperConnect technology introduces an embedded copper lattice to the end connection, dramatically reducing
grain boundary crossings and signal path resistance, freeing capacitor designs achieve new levels of audio performance.
Taking inspiration from the highly regarded MR range, the CMR employs the same micro-phonics series
film construction and acrylic tube damping. CopperConnect technology dramatically reduces grain boundary
crossings in the end connection and enables designs to employ narrower films for reduced capacitor
ESR without introducing the corollary increase in end connection impedance.
The philosophy of eliminating as many crystal boundaries as possible is extended
to the use of premium grade 1.0mm2 tinned oxygen free copper leads.
We are confident you’ll agree ClarityCap’s commitment to innovation has once again
raised the bar for audiophile film capacitor performance.
