Due to its patented symmetrical arrangement of eight magnets and 24-carat gold wire coils, the Clearaudio Talismann V2 redefines the performance available at this price level and reveals the sonic potential of the second generation ‘V2’ series of Clearaudio moving coil cartridges.
The legendary combination of a rigid boron cantilever and Micro HD diamond stylus extract even the finest details stored in the record’s groove both effortlessly and meticulously to deliver an unprecedented performance. The 10.8-gram hand-polished ebony body not only impresses with its discreet elegance, but also contributes to the clear, captivating sound of this cartridge by perfectly suppressing resonances.
Each moving coil cartridge made by Clearaudio is an impressive demonstration of fine engineering and a milestone in high-end audio history: unique masterpieces with microscopic pure gold coils, handmade in Germany
Clearaudio have been engaged in ongoing research into moving coil technology since 1978. Compared with moving magnet systems, moving coil cartridges have the potential to extract even finer details from the record groove and to respond to dynamic changes significantly faster. Since the early days of their research, the improvement of sound quality has been driven steadily forward by using new materials and seeking new solutions to well known problems, such as setting new standards in the parameters of dynamic impedance, inductance and capacitance.
Ingenious design and extensive scientific experimentation have allowed Clearaudio to bridge the gap in performance between moving magnet and moving coil cartridges. Clearaudio’s top-of-the-range moving magnet cartridges incorporate many of the features of their moving coil cartridges.
The Clearaudio MC generation V2 represents the state of the art for high-end MC cartridges; perfect symmetry for perfect sound reproduction. Only patented Clearaudio moving coil (MC) cartridges are symmetrical in all three important respects: magnetic, mechanical and electrical. Clearaudio MC technology is considered by both experts and music lovers to be the ultimate in audiophile music reproduction.
Since founding Clearaudio in 1978, Peter Suchy and his team have pioneered a series of novel ideas, subjecting every new development to meticulous scientific examination and ruthless testing. This tireless refusal to accept limitations and to strive toward new solutions and higher fidelity have enabled Clearaudio to reach peaks of innovation and technological development and to occupy a leading market position.
Such outstanding specifications as a dynamic range of 100 decibels and a bandwidth of 20Hz to 100kHz speak for themselves. Countless hours are invested in laboratories to make Clearaudio’s flagship products even better and in so doing, the standard for the world’s best to be redefined and many technological triumphs of analogue music reproduction have been achieved.
