Clearaudio's new Talisman V2 Gold Mc cartridge is an upgrade of the 'late' Talisman. Now available as V2 and Gold!

Clearaudio Talisman V2 Gold: features

This Talisman V2 Gold is based on its predecessor's main innovations that made it a legend, with a number of significant changes thrown in. 

The now traditional ebony housing is also available. It is from an old stock that makes the cartridge very robust.

The coils are made of a 24 carat gold conductor. They are checked by hand, allowing for unrivalled consistency and reliability in production.

The magnetic part is complex and fully symmetrical. It consists of 8 powerful magnets.

Clearaudio Talisman V2 Gold: stylus

The boron cantilever accommodates a Micro HD stylus that has a high precision profile.

When combined with a rigid boron cantilever and a Micro HD stylus, every single detail stored in the groove can be heard.

This Talisman V2 Gold seems to achieve this effortlessly and with a lot of class.

Clearaudio Talisman V2 Gold: association

Its mean compliance (15), combined with its significant tracking force (2.8 g) and weight (10.8 g), making it suitable for good quality average mass tonearms.

Clearaudio Talisman V2 Gold: listening and review

As always with Clearaudio, playback is detailed and very clean.

The dynamics are amazing, specifically the bass that shows unparalleled articulation and precision.

The soundstage is impressively wide, deep with excellent placement.

Playback is definitely not dull and dark. Quite the opposite; the timbre is clear and full of harmonics.

This Clearaudio Talisman V2 Gold cartridge is recommended with systems that lack punch, definition and opening in the upper register.

They are recommended for audiophiles in search of subtlety and transparency!
