Product Info


With the V2 series, Clearaudio attained new standards in the phono cartridge parameters of impedance, inductance, load capacitance and sensitivity. Ongoing research, development and manufacturing precision has enabled Clearaudio to achieve near perfect balance of the stereo channels, reduce distortion to vanishing levels and increase output level with a flattest frequency response to provide a vivid and enthralling musical performance.

The Clearaudio v2 Ebony phono 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 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.

The Performer V2 Ebony phono cartridge offers all of the above and adds:
A resonance-optimized ebony housing for less colouration and more natural sound
More powerful magnets producing greater dynamic range
A balanced response, greater high and low frequency extension with clean, well-defined bass and pristine highs.
