Clearaudio Charisma V2 MM Cartridge
As Clearaudio continue to advance standards in the range of moving coil (MC) cartridges, they felt it was equally time to turn their attention to the moving magnet (MM) range and to make a new statement.
From the Concept V2 to the Maestro V2, the MM cartridges have long been at the forefront of the moving magnet field and have proved popular among music lovers for their distinctive high quality.
The Charisma V2 is the new flagship of the Clearaudio MM cartridge range.
Only the finest materials qualified for inclusion, including the same diamond-coated Boron cantilever found in the world-leading Goldfinger Statement MC cartridge.
The use of highly efficient magnets gives the dynamic Charisma V2 an almost record-breaking output, easily enough to amply drive less sensitive phono stages. The double-polished diamond stylus is mounted on the cantilever with matchless precision, ensuring excellent frequency response and the highest channel separation.
The cartridge body is made from the finest ebony wood and is set with a precious metal-bearing inlay.
The result? A quality of sound that, until now, seemed unachievable rom MM cartridges. Utterly charismatic.
