- Performer V2
- Artist V2
- Virtuoso V2
- Maestro V2
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 our MM V2 cartridges deliver the following enhancements over earlier models:
- A resonance-optimized ebony housing for less colouration 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 aluminium 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.
