    MY TAKE:

    Clearaudio moving magnet cartridges strike a pleasing balance between the warmer tonality of a moving magnet design and the faster more resolving qualities associated with moving coil cartridges, and is one of the reasons they have become customer favorites here. Greater refinement and resolution are noted as you move up with the line. Strongly recommended. – Galen Carol

     

    For over 25 years Clearaudio has been manufacturing exceptional analog products. Located in Bavaria, home to BMW, the company’s German heritage is apparent their precision construction and attention to detail. All Clearaudio components are designed for sound quality, functionality, reliability and longevity.


    The result of many years of research and development, their manufacturing technology is the basis of their quality components. The Company’s innovation and pioneering technologies have solidified their international reputation and garnered them numerous patents.


    Clearaudio Moving Magnet Phono Cartridges are precision products that are held to the most stringent quality control standards. The patented assembly process is based on the newest technical advances. Materials are hand selected and held to the tightest tolerances.


    With the V2 series of MM cartridges, Clearaudio set new standards in the technical parameters of impedance, inductance, load capacitance and sensitivity. Ongoing research and development have enabled us to attain near perfect balance of the stereo channels, reduce distortion to vanishing levels and increase output level with a flat frequency response to provide a vivid and enthralling musical performance.
     

    All of the MM V2 cartridges deliver the following enhancements over earlier models:
     

    • A resonance-optimized ebony housing for less coloration and more natural sound
    • More powerful magnets producing greater dynamic range
    • Higher output voltage for lower noise levels
    • The Concept V2, Performer V2, Artist V2 and Virtuoso V2 all feature aluminum cantilevers and double polished elliptical styli, while the Maestro V2 has a has a boron cantilever and micro HD stylus
    • The Virtuoso V2 and Maestro V2 include matched magnet and coil assemblies.


    SPECIFICATIONS:

    • Frequency Response: 20 Hz - 20 kHz
    • Output voltage (1kHz, 5cm/s): ∼ 3.6 mV
    • Channel separation (1kHz): > 30 dB
    • Channel balance (1kHz): < 0.2 dB
    • Tracking ability: 90 µm
    • Tracking Force: (recommended 2.0 - 2.5 g): 2.2 gram
    • Coil impedance (1kHz): 66 kΩ
    • Coil inductance: 0.40 H
    • Load resistance: 47 kΩ
    • Load capacitance: 100 pF
    • Cantilever: Aluminum
    • Weight: 6.0 gram
    • Manufacturer's guarantee: 2 years
