Clearaudio Virtuoso V2 Moving Magnet Phono Cartridge
Precision engineering in the pursuit of the best sound
Clearaudio Virtuoso V2 Moving Magnet Phono Cartridge technology uses ebony as a resonance resistant body. Other ingredients of the recipe for success are the most effective reduction of moving mass, an optimized polishing technique for the stylus and highly effective cartridge damping.
The Clearaudio V2 moving magnet cartridges are meticulously measured, analyzed, and hand-selected into four performance levels. In this way Clearaudio achieves the best stereo channel matching, minimum phase error and distortion, flattest frequency response and highest dynamic range at each price point.
Designed for memorable high-end playback, Virtuoso v2 digs deep into the grooves of vinyl LPs and offers a level of dynamic range, natural presentation, and noticeable clarity that will have you keep listening deep into the night. Its penchant for delivering inner detail and fast transients make Virtuoso v2 true to its name.
The cartridges produce an audiophile sound of superlative quality – spatially detailed and vividly textured, with bass that does not wallow and treble that is not harsh. The models of the Clearaudio MM V2 series provide outstanding sound quality on all current tonearms.
With the exception of the MM V2 Concept, which is made of aluminum, all the cartridges in this series are made with housings of hand-polished ebony – the key to record-breaking weight values.
Clearaudio v2 Virtuoso benefits from the following improvements:
- Resonance-optimized ebony housing
- Use of more powerful magnets producing greater dynamic range
- Higher output voltage
