Product Description

The Charisma MC-2 Moving Coil Phono Cartridge has an alloy open-construction body weighing in at a substantial 12g, giving it an edge for tonearms with fairly heavy counterweights. The additional body mass and wide structure helps the cartridge to gain greater stability.

Delivering a sound that combines clarity and fine detail, the Charisma MC-2 is packed with impressive neutrality and an attractive tonal bloom. The relaxed stability gives a sense of authority you would expect from the best. The solid and focused sound, steers clear of seeming closed-in or constrained; Bass is tight and full while the frequencies are airy and spacious.

Reduced resonances, result in a more neutral sound and the open nature of the body helps avoid cavity resonances, but leaves the coils exposed. The cantilever is made from annealed inox steel, and the stylus is a line contact bare diamond

    Great Detail, Very open,wide soundstage Works well with the VPI 3D tonearm. Needs a full 50 hours to break in. Once broken in the MC-2 compeats with MCs costing far more money. For 1495.00 you can't go wrong with this cartridge. Highly Recommended!
