Superior Performance All the Way
The Virtuoso wood-body phono cartridge was one of Clearaudio's highest acclaimed moving magnet models. The new Virtuoso V2 improves on the previous model with an ebony body and other advancements. Minimal distortion, flat frequency response, and a high output voltage provide a vivid and tactile musicality. It offers a level of performance more akin to expensive moving coil cartridges than a moving magnet model.
The Virtuoso V2 has a wide-band frequency response of 20 Hz to 20 kHz, 4.0 mV output voltage, and channel separation of >30 dB at 1 kHz.
V2 Series Advantages
With the V2 series of moving magnet cartridges Clearaudio sets new standards in the technical parameters of impedance, inductance, load capacitance and sensitivity. Ongoing research, development and analysis in Clearaudio's laboratory allows the company 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.
Clearaudio V2-series MM cartridges feature a resonance-optimized ebony housing. In comparison to the company's critically acclaimed Aurum series, the V2 series offers less coloration and more natural sound, more powerful magnets for greater dynamic range, and higher output voltage for lower noise levels.

|Rich, transparent, and warm!|
Beautiful tonal balance, rich mids, controlled, extended bass, and treble that never offends the ears. This wood cart provides plenty of detail extraction and convincing soundstage depth and width. Classical LPs sound marvelous, with ease of separation of instruments. Strings sound exactly like they should; violins and cellos are reproduced with realistic decay and resonances. Vocals are clear, organic, and musical. Rhythm and emotion transmitted with very good dynamics across the FR. Pair with a transparent phono preamp.
