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.
The concept achieves these highest of requirements, realising the Clearaudio vision.
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 chassis, isolating the record from any 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 Clearaudio concept MM or Clearaudio concept MC cartridge (toneam and/or cartridge upgrade possible).
With the concept turntable package, Clearaudio offers you an extremely innovative design that is very affordable.
Concept edition series, is a limited edition of 250 units. It is combining special colors and improved material features.
In this edition the chassis top insert plate is made out of artificial stone with a special coating. Thus is improving the overall rigidity and giving some extra weight. The chassis is lacquered with a special white, giving the extra modern look. An eye and ear catcher, made to last forever!
