Clearaudio Talismann V2.1 Gold Moving Coil Cartridge


... 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. The presentation here is really grounded in the best sense of the word, yet it’s dynamic as all get out, which is no surprise, dynamic range being a house specialty chez Clearaudio. It’s also got terrific rhythmic spring, bounce, and timing despite the lower midrange to bottom weight.


Clearaudio has significantly improved the fully symmetrical MC design, first patented in 1980. It redesigned the generator in a revolutionary way by positioning and doubling the number of magnets (to eight) and using super neodymium, so the coils are operating in a much stronger magnetic field. Thus, efficiency has been raised by 30%, which results in an output of up to 0.9 mV.

The new Micro-HD Diamond tip provides a hybrid parabolic geometry with a stylus radius of 0.008 mm x 0.040 mm. The total mass (0.00016 g) is a fifth of the previous diamond stylus.

Cartridge body resonances, while tracking in the groove, are minimized through the twelve-finger design of the mounting plate, each finger with a different radius.
