Clearaudio Concept Turntable
Clearaudio's vision for the concept: design an elegantly styled turntable package featuring a level of ground-breaking technology usually only found in high-end turntables, combining plug-and-play simplicity with outstanding sound quality and affordability.
Beneath the sleek, contemporary exterior is a level of technical sophistication unique to Clearaudio.
The concept’s body is carefully crafted from medium-density wood fibre (or, optionally, pressure-formed solid wood) with a selection of smart made-to-match surface finishes. The body’s upper layer incorporates a special high-tech satined plastic compound designed to minimise unwanted resonance.
The DC motor is fed by an external voltage-stabilised power supply and is completely decoupled from the turntable’s body to ensure no mechanical interference.
The concept tonearm features a magnetic bearing that is friction-free for extremely low distortion and superb performance. The package is completed with the high quality CONCEPT MM or CONCEPT MC cartridge (Upgrade possible).
Innovative, high-performing, user-friendly and affordable. Now that’s what we call an unbeatable concept.
