As Clearaudio continue to advance standards in our range of moving coil (MC) cartridges, we felt it was equally time to turn our attention to the moving magnet (MM) range and to make a new statement.

From the Concept V2 to the Maestro V2, our 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 our 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.

The Charisma V2 is Clearaudio’s flagship Moving Magnet cartridge and is made from the finest materials including the same Boron cantilever found in their top-of-the-range Goldfinger Statement MC cartridge. Utilizing ultra-high efficiency magnets, the Charisma V2 is capable of almost unmatched output, allowing it to easily drive less-sensitive phono stages for maximum system compatibility. Its double-polished Gyger S shaped stylus is mated to the cantilever with matchless precision, ensuring excellent frequency response and the highest channel separation. The Charisma V2 is housed in a special Ebony wood body with silver inlay for added mass and resonance control.
