The Clearaudio Maestro V2 Ebony is the top of the line cartridge in Clearaudio's range of Moving Magnet cartridges! The Maestro is equiped with a solid boron rod cantilever and Micro HD stylus for decisive power not generally found in a Moving Magnet cartridge.

The Clearaudio v2 Ebony 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 an all-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.

"This is the best sounding MM cartridge we have heard! Takes the Virtuoso Wood to new heights!" - Bob Bantz, President Elusive Disc

"The Maestro V2 Ebony is a sonic improvement in every way... the Ebony hews straight down the rich and wide middle of the sonic spectrum. Its overall balance brings symphonic recordings to life, unifying each section into the greater whole of the orchestra. Low-level detail is elegantly resolved. Plus there's a lightness and speed to the way the Ebonny resolves transients. As musical as they come, the Maestro V2 Ebony should be required listening for moving-magnet and moving-coil fans alike." - Neil Gader, The Absolute Sound, July/August 2013

"Sonically, the Clearaudio Maestro Wood will be no stranger to those familiar with the virtues of the late, lamented Sure [V15mX]. Across most criteria, the easygoing balance of the V15 has been channeled into the Maestro Wood. Only there's more. More dimensionality, and greater soundstage width - areas where the Shure didn't especially excel. The Maestro Wood gushes sweet sonics like squeezing a ripe, red plum. It has a warm, darkly sensuous tonal balance, but it's not a softy in the dynamics department, nor does it smear inner details." - Neil Gader, The Absolute Sound, October 2008

"The Clearaudio Maestro Wood is a sweet-talker and an addictively balanced performer. For those who hear the clarion call of the moving coil, more power to you. For little-old blue collar me, the Maestro Wood is the kind of component that keeps its eye on the big picture - exactly how I like my music." - Neil Gader, The Absolute Sound, October 2008
