CLEARAUDIO TALISMANN V2 GOLD MC CARTRIDGE
“… from the top of the midrange on down this is one beautiful-sounding pickup: it’s got a gorgeous midrange and bottom end, really solid in all senses of the word, superb definition and clarity, and lots of heft and weight.” – Paul Seydor, The Absolute Sound USA
“MC Talismann V2 Gold fits even better to the level of the drive and tone arms, as it tones a bit more powerful, colorful and spatial.” – Matthias Böde, Stereo Germany
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, the Talsimann v2 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.
