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. The Virtuoso V2 and Maestro V2 include matched magnet and coil assemblies. 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.
