Clearaudio Artist v2 Ebony Moving Magnet Cartridge

The middle of the Clearaudio Wood range, this cartridge sits between the Performer and the Virtuoso. Here's a quote on the Virtuoso:

 

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

 

Clearaudio sets new standards in the phono-cartridge parameters of impedance, inductance, load capacitance, and sensitivity, through tireless research and continuous measurement in its own laboratory. Clearaudio continuously measures and analyses the built-in magnets to produce the perfect balance of the stereo channels. As a result, minimal distortion values, flat frequency response, and high output voltage provide a vivid and tactile musicality.
