The new 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. The four new cartridges in the v2 Ebony series are the Performer v2 Ebony, Artist v2 Ebony, Virtuoso v2 Ebony, and Maestro v2 Ebony.

Again and again clearaudio set new standards in the phono cartridge parameters of impedance, inductance, load capacitance and sensitivity through tireless research and continuous measurement in our own laboratory. Clearaudio manufacturing precision is exhibited in the continuous measurement and analysis of the built-in magnets to produce perfect balance of the stereo channels. Minimal distortion values, flat frequency response and high output voltage provide a vivid and tactile musicality.
