Charisma Audio MC-2 Moving Coil Phono Cartridge - 'Sounds far better than it has any right to!' - Pos. Feedback
Audio Revelation is an authorized Charisma dealer for all models
"Against my better judgment, I did a brief comparison of the MC-2 to my brother's far more expensive Transfiguration Phoenix. But much to my surprise the MC-2 was at least the equal of the Phoenix
in some regards and better in a couple of the more important ones: musical details within the soundstage (i.e. natural decay on struck cymbals) and bass extension."
- Dave Thomas, Stereo Times (read the review)
"The $1495 Charisma Audio MC-2 moving coil cartridge sounds far better than it has any right to! In fact, this recently introduced cartridge–and cartridge line—is undoubtedly one of today's best bangs for the buck in the once again growing world of high-end audio cartridges."
- Miles Astor, Positive Feedback, July, 2015 (read the review)
"Charisma Audio's line of cartridges are winners. Highly recommended."
- Noam Bronstein, Wall of Sound Feb., 2015 (read the review)
"The MC-1 is capable of great subtlety and delicacy too. It offers that winning combination of relaxed assertiveness only top-notch vinyl seems to deliver. The sound is immediate, without seeming aggressively forceful or unpleasantly forward. At the same time, there's an abundance of fine detail that 'tells' in a very beguiling manner... Your vinyl collection will sound totally transformed and magnificent."
- Jimmy Hughes, HiFi+ (read the review)
"The Charisma MC-1 was an excellent moving coil cartridge and I thoroughly enjoyed my time with it. At first blush, a $1095 cartridge is not what I'd call a bargain but since it offered performance awfully close to one twice as expensive, perhaps it is. Well done Charisma.
- Paul Candy, Positive Feedback (read the review)
"In conclusion, I loved this cartridge. I loved its clarity, its accuracy, its wonderfully clean bass – its musicality. I loved that I completely forgot about it, and just listened to music, and watched the pile of LPs to listen to get larger and larger... I've got a strong feeling my search for my new standard cartridge is over."
