Clearaudio Virtuoso v2 Ebony Cartridge

The Clearaudio Virtuoso v2 Ebony phono cartridge is the highest graded of this series of Moving Magnets starting with the Performer and Artist, all featuring Ebony body, aluminum cantilever, and elliptical stylus. Its overall performance comes close to the Maestro v2 Ebony cartridges with less sensitivity to VTA and record pressing variations. This makes it the ideal MM cartridge for the Concept turntable and tonearm.

The new Clearaudio v2 Ebony cartridges are the culmination of Clearaudio's continuous research and refinement of moving magnet phono cartridge design. Building upon the foundation of their popular and critically acclaimed Aurum series, the Clearaudio v2 Ebony cartridges feature an all-new resonance optimized Ebony wood housing and a more powerful internal magnetic structure. In comparison to the Aurum series, the v2 Ebony cartridges have greater dynamic range and a more balanced response with greater high and low frequency extension. Their overall presentation bears resemblance to the finest moving coil cartridges while simultaneously building upon the strengths that make moving magnet cartridges the choice of many music lovers and audiophiles.
