Stradivari V2

£3,210

A name to live up to. Meticulousness of design, spurred on by a goal of redefining the best and raising the bar ever higher, have led to a masterpiece of German craftsmanship, The Stradivari family is associated with the highest level of excellence in building musical instruments. The MC cartridge, named after the famous creators of the Stradivarius stringed instruments, allows a magnificent 80 dB dynamic range from vinyl.

Like all cartridges in the MC V2 range, it uses a unique patented configuration of eight magnets arranged in a ring (double the number of the previous version, which featured four magnets). This generates an intense magnetic field and also allows a reduced moving mass, giving a significantly greater sound performance with new levels of dynamic range, detail and channel separation.

All of the V2 generation MC cartridges also feature a precision boron cantilever and micro HD (high definition) stylus, which achieves a perfect contact with the record groove walls and by virtue of its extremely low mass (around one fifth of that of typical high quality styli), is able to faithfully reproduce even the finest musical details. The generator coils are painstakingly wound using pure 24-carat gold wire, which, thanks to our new eight magnet design, has been thinned down, further reducing mass.

The Stradivari V2’s distinctive 12-fingered shape, metal top plate, and main body constructed of long-aged ebony wood, combine to deliver excellent resistance to resonance and a high-performance, well-balanced sound.

Like all of the V2 generation MC cartridges, the Stradivari V2 incorporates Clearaudio’s patented MC construction principle, which guarantees absolute symmetry of all electrical, mechanical and magnetic parameters, enabling free movement of the cartridge by reducing inertia. A removable stylus guard is included.
