Clearaudio Charisma V2 Ebony MM Phono Cartridge

Pin It

The Charisma V2 is Clearaudio founder Peter Suchy’s Moving Magnet masterpiece, setting new performance standards for MM cartridge clarity, soundstaging, bass, and dynamics.

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 $2,200 and we offer a special trade-up price for Clearaudio Maestro MM cartridge owners of only $1,650.00.
