Clearaudio Talismann v2 Gold Cartridge

The Talismann V2 Gold is the entry level into the latest "V2" - generation of Clearaudio MC cartridges providing outstanding performance.

A major improvement over its predecessor is the use of the Clearaudio patented configuration of 8 magnets, which is mainly characterized by the extremely wide dynamic range.

In common with all the MC cartridges in the new "V2"- generation, the Talismann V2 Gold is fitted with a Micro HD stylus (HD=High Definition) and a precision boron cantilever.

The Micro HD diamond achieves a perfect contact with the record groove walls and by virtue of its extremely low mass, is able to faithfully reproduce even the most fine musical details.

The body of the new Talismann V2 Gold is made out of hand-polished ebony with metal top plate and an internal metal-alloy resonance-suppressing block. The name "Gold" refers to the patented MC generator of the Clearaudio Talismann V2 Gold, in which the coils are manufactured from pure 24-karat gold wire.

The combination of these unique features sets the Clearaudio Talismann apart from other MC cartridges in this price range.

The Talismann v2 is the first model in the Clearaudio MC line that uses our patents developed in the 1970s by Peter Suchy for a fully symmetrical moving coil phono cartridge design. What’s more is that it uses the v2 generator, positioning their 24-karat pure gold air-core coils with twice the magnets, so the coils are operating in a much stronger magnetic field.

Housed in a unique Ebony wood body that provides better coupling to the headshell and resonance tuning, it has a richness and fullness without sacrificing resolution. As with all Clearaudio MCs, it uses a solid boron rod cantilever. The new Micro-HD Diamond tip provides a hybrid parabolic geometry and a reduction of tip mass, assuring more accuracy to groove tracing and high frequency linearity.
