Charisma Audio

Over more than 45 years’ experience in audio, we have collected the solid ideas which inspire the design and manufacture of our accessories. Using premium materials, these not only look attractive but also show striking performance.

Ultimate simplicity and purity form the foundation of our designs.

Our phono cartridges are priced reasonably but deliver stunning performance. They all have a semi-open body to avoid cavity resonances. Their sound is musical and natural, with proper balance from top to bottom. Very hard materials with excellent transmission speeds are used for the cantilevers; these include titanium alloy, sapphire and ruby. This reduces resonance in order to improve transparency, transients, imaging and focus.

We source the line contact stylus from Namiki Japan, the largest stylus supplier in the world.
