Clearaudio Maestro v2 Ebony Moving Magnet Phono Cartridge

 

The tonal balance was more middle-to-rear-of-hall, but the richness and fullness of the brass and strings were to die for: well burnished, and the Maestro's ability to reproduce orchestral weight surpassed that of many MCs of any price.
— MICHAEL FREMER, STEREOPHILE

A big step up in performance from the heralded Virtuoso Wood, the Maestro furthers that design with a new integral wood body for greater rigidity. This results in increased dynamics and tighter image focus. The Maestro is fitted with their solid boron rod cantilever and Trygon P2 stylus for resolving power previously unimaginable in a MM cartridge. The Maestro’s healthy output and freedom from resistive loading concerns make it the perfect choice for anybody searching for great sound that rivals MC designs which cost a great deal more.

The Clearaudio Maestro is the top of the line cartridge in Clearaudio's range of Moving Magnet cartridges with a solid body of Satiné wood for a slightly warmer sound.

The Maestro features the same design as the popular Virtuoso Wood but with a new integral wood body for greater rigidity. With this improvement, you will notice an increase in dynamics and tighter image focus. The Maestro is equiped with a solid boron rod cantilever and Trygon P2 stylus (same stylus used on the famous Insider MC cartridge!) for decisive power not generally found in a Moving Magnet cartridge.
