The Charisma V2 is Clearaudio’s flagship Moving Magnet cartridge, using the same Boron cantilever and double-polished Gyger S stylus found in their top-of-the-range Goldfinger Statement MC cartridge. Handmade in their German factory the generator utilizes ultra high-efficiency magnets that are precisely matched, ensuring flat frequency response and excellent channel separation. The Charisma V2 output is a real world 3.6 MV, allowing it to easily drive most phono stages for maximum system compatibility. It is housed in a special Ebony wood body with silver inlay for added mass and resonance control. MSRP is $2,000 and we offer a special trade-up price for Clearaudio Maestro MM cartridge owners of only $1,500.
