The Charisma V2 is Clearaudio founder, Peter Suchy’s Moving Magnet masterpiece. The Charisma V2 sets new performance standards for Moving Magnet cartridges including clarity, soundstaging, bass, and dynamics.

The Charisma V2 is Clearaudio’s flagship Moving Magnet cartridge, using the same Boron cantilever and double-polished Gyger S stylus found in their top-of-the-range Goldfinger Statement MC cartridge. Handmade in their German factory the generator utilizes ultra high-efficiency magnets that are precisely matched, ensuring flat frequency response and excellent channel separation. The Charisma V2 output is a real world 3.6 MV, allowing it to easily drive most phono stages for maximum system compatibility. It is housed in a special Ebony wood body with silver inlay for added mass and resonance control.

"It offers a full palette of timbral vibrancy and complexity, the classic midrange heft and bloom that I desire, and the dynamic electricity and top-end sweetness that I demand. Tracking was unshakable and effortless, and the cartridge imparted transient cues with unalloyed naturalism. As with its vaunted moving-coil brethren the Charisma reproduces even finer gradations of light and air in the upper octaves, while maintaining overall neutral tonality. The Charisma also retrieves images like they are being monitored by LoJack...Like its name implies, you've either got it or you don't. This cartridge has got it." - Neil Gader, The Absolute Sound, July/August 2018
