Clearaudio Concept Mm'
Charisma V2 MM Cartridge
As Clearaudio continue to advance standards in our range of moving coil (MC) cartridges, we felt it was equally time to turn our attention to the moving magnet (MM) range and to make a new statement.
From the concept V2 to the Maestro V2, our MM cartridges have long been at the forefront of the moving magnet field and have proved popular among music lovers for their distinctive high quality.
The Charisma V2 is the new flagship of the Clearaudio MM cartridge range.
Only the finest materials qualified for inclusion, including the same diamond-coated Boron cantilever found in our world-leading Goldfinger Statement MC cartridge.
The use of highly efficient magnets gives the dynamic Charisma V2 an almost record-breaking output, easily enough to amply drive less sensitive phono stages. The double-polished diamond stylus is mounted on the cantilever with matchless precision, ensuring excellent frequency response and the highest channel separation.
The cartridge body is made from the finest ebony wood and is set with a precious metal-bearing inlay.
The result? A quality of sound that, until now, seemed unachievable from MM cartridges. Utterly charismatic.$2,000.00Moving Magnet Cartridge Buy Now

My first impressions were of a very smooth-sounding, quiet turntable-tonearm-cartridge assembly. Those ended up being my lasting impressions impressions as well.

Clearaudio's vision for the concept: design an elegantly styled turntable package featuring a level of groundbreaking technology usually only found in high-end turntables, combining plug-and-play simplicity with outstanding sound quality and affordability.
Beneath the refined, contemporary exterior lies a level of technical sophistication unique to Clearaudio. The concept's chassis comprises a core of natural medium-density wood fibre within an aluminium surround and upper layer incorporating a high tech synthetic compound. This composite of materials eliminates the detrimental effects caused by unwanted vibrations.
The DC motor is fed by an external voltage-stabilised power supply and is completely decoupled from the chassis, isolating the record from any mechanical interference. The concept tonearm features a magnetic bearing that is friction-free for extremely low distortion and superb performance. The package is completed with the high-quality Clearaudio CONCEPT MC CARTRIDGE. With the concept turntable package, Clearaudio offers you an extremely innovative design that is very affordable.
The revolutionary concept combines the highest quality of music playback with a design that has won several awards worldwide - including the German Design Award and 'Best Turntable' award from 'What Hi-Fi? Sound and Vision' magazine. With the concept, to find an affordable entry point to the high-end world is a breeze. It reveals the magic of optimum sound reproduction even for those music lovers who could not previously afford this experience. You can buy the concept in a package with specially developed MOVING MAGNET (MM) or MOVING COIL (MC) cartridges. A frictionless magnetic bearing tonearm is responsible for the optimal performance of the cartridges. All critical parameters from cartridge tracking weight to anti-skating are preadjusted in our factory. The concept represents the ideal of stress-free 'plug and play': unpack, connect, put the record on the platter - and just enjoy music. There was never more audiophile technology in this class of turntables.
