Clarity M is MasterSounds‘ newest flagship high-fidelity modular audio system, which the company has announced as part of its ongoing award-winning development.

Unveiled in its whole and in full detail today, the Clarity M audio system now impressively leads MasterSounds’ premium grade product line-up of high-fidelity audio systems, hand-made exotic DJ Mixers, and audio accessories created and manufactured with the utmost skill, care, and attention to detail in the United Kingdom.

Clarity M, a new modular audio system, has been introduced by MasterSounds.

Clarity M is a natural step for MasterSounds, growing from smaller home audio systems like those featured in the Clarity A system into a bigger adaptable package that not only offers true high fidelity but is also capable of a higher SPL output that can match the demands of larger public address applications.

The hand-made-to-order Clarity M maintains the beautiful modular and minimalist design DNA of its predecessors, as well as MasterSounds’ 15-year deep design ethos. MasterSounds’ deep history in DJ and audio has pioneered an incredible and revered line of high-fidelity audio products, including DJ mixers, FX units, turntable weights, and more. The Clarity M is rooted in the esoteric principles of sound and simplicity that the company was founded on.

It really was natural for us to expand into Clarity M from the small footprint of our wonderful Clarity A Audio System. We wanted to keep the familiar classic look and feel of Clarity A when we scaled up to Clarity M, as well as maintaining the fantastic transparent sound signature that gave us the name of ‘Clarity’ to begin with – Ryan Shaw, MasterSounds Founder.

Clarity M is both high fidelity and high powered, giving a fantastic sound experience that is suited for home HiFi listening, listening bars, or discerning public spaces that do not need line arrays or bigger sound systems. It has passive loudspeakers and power amplification by MasterSounds project partner Full Fat Audio. The strong presence and exceptional sound picture of the Clarity M are designed to be able to adapt to a broad range of scales and demands thanks to its modular design and construction.

The entry-level paired stack may expand all the way up to a high-headroom, polished four-point sound system using the Sub:15 modular subwoofer, which is coupled to the 12″ full-range Top:12 speaker.

Clarity M is handmade to order in England, and the starting price for a configuration is £12,495 (this price includes VAT for consumers in the UK; for international buyers, the price is £10,412.5 plus VAT).

Clarity M features

Sub 15 – The high-powered, line-loaded reflex bass loudspeaker offers superb linear frequency response with fast transient detailing.

Top 12 – Its seductive full-range coaxial driver gives high output and excellent phase coherence when mated to Sub 15.

High Power, High Fidelity – Clarity M offers refined fidelity at high SPL, with passive loudspeakers and power amplification via MasterSounds project partner Full Fat Audio.

Flexible – The Top:12 can be placed atop Sub:15 in a point source arrangement, or ‘flown’ for wider sound dispersion of mid and top-end frequencies.

Modular – Clarity M’s modular design enables a unified upgrade path. The entry system comprises a pair of MasterSounds 15″ sub enclosures, and a pair of full-range 12″ top enclosures, powered by a single Full Fat Audio power amplifier. This can expand into a four-point system featuring 4x Top:12 and 12 Sub:15 units, for much higher SPL and coverage.

Classic – Grill-less enclosures showcase the transducers in their purest form.

Sound Signature – High headroom, refinement & transparency, with satisfying dynamic range & enviable sound image from 25Hz to 20kH
