Clear Audio Concept MM Turntable Wooden Finish

Clear Audio

Clearaudio's vision for the Concept: design an elegantly styled turntable package featuring a level of groundbreaking technology usually only found in high-end turntables, combining plug-and-play simplicity with outstanding sound quality and affordability.

  • Beneath the refined, contemporary exterior lies a level of technical sophistication unique to Clearaudio. The Concept's chassis comprises a core of natural medium-density wood fibre within an aluminium surround and upper layer incorporating a high tech synthetic compound. This composite of materials eliminates the detrimental effects caused by unwanted vibrations.

    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 MM Concept cartridge. With the Concept turntable package, Clearaudio offers you an extremely innovative design that is very affordable.

  • The revolutionary Concept combines the highest quality of music playback with a design that has won several awards worldwide – including the German Design Award and 'Best Turntable' award from 'What Hi-Fi? Sound and Vision' magazine. With the Concept, to find an affordable entry point to the high-end world is a breeze. It reveals the magic of optimum sound reproduction even for those music lovers who could not previously afford this experience. You can buy the Concept in a package with specially developed moving magnet (MM) or moving coil (MC) cartridges. A frictionless magnetic bearing tonearm is responsible for the optimal performance of the cartridges. All critical parameters from cartridge tracking weight to anti-skating are preadjusted in our factory. The Concept represents the ideal of stress-free 'plug and play': unpack, connect, put the record on the platter – and just enjoy music. There was never more audiophile technology in this class of turntables.
