Charismatic Performance: German-Made Clearaudio Charisma V2.1 MM Phono Cartridge Delivers Beguiling Dynamics and Channel Separation

Indisputably charismatic: Charisma V2.1, the flagship of Clearaudio's MM phono cartridge line, resets the limits on what's possible from a moving-magnet design at its price point. To achieve that goal, Clearaudio appropriated the diamond-coated boron cantilever and double-polished Micro-HD stylus used in its internationally acclaimed Goldfinger Statement MC cartridge. The German analog experts used hand-selected ebony wood to handcraft the cartridge body. A high-end generator with precisely matched, efficient magnets and siver inlay rounds out the design, whose construction and materials ensure flat frequency response and stellar clarity. 

Bu what really matters is the performance you'll experience. Taking its position as a reference instrument in its class, the German-made Charisma V2.1 honors its name with reference-level output (3.6mV) that permits it to effortlessly mate with even less-sensitive phono preamplifiers. This cartridge's beguiling dynamic range is matched only by its benchmark channel separation. Playing back vinyl, Charisma V2.1 helps turn LPs into something more than pieces of wax. Records become the equivalent of private concerts. Such is the level of imaging, balance, bass, detail, body, tonality, presence, soundstaging, and pacing achieved during playback. Charisma V2.1's tracking abilities are equally proficient. If the information is in the grooves, Charisma V2.1 will mine and present it with stunning realism. Call it analog at its most magnetic, personable, and charismatic.
