CLEARAUDIO - CONCEPT TURNTABLE
Clearaudio Concept Combo - A New, Gorgeous Turntable Package That's Simple to Set-Up and Use... What a Concept !
New Black and Stainless Steel Finish - Classic Looks, Fantastic Sound!
The Clearaudio Concept is a new complete analog package that comes fully set-up so you can start listening to music right out of the box. This is a beautiful turntable/tonearm/cartridge combination! Finished in piano black and surrounded in stainless steel for a spectacular, modern look, the Clearaudio Concept makes playing vinyl simple and fun. Wait until you hear how good this turntable sounds !!
"The Concept has a very neutral overall sound, with a weight and openness that I've yet to experience at this price point. It's rare that a table at this price point has enough low-level detail to really define the hall characteristics of the recording, but again the Concept passed with flying colors. I feel this table is the new benchmark in its price class. It combines simple setup with stunning good looks and performance to match. We are happy to award the Clearaudio Concept one of our Exceptional Value Awards for 2010!"
- Jeff Dorgay, Tone Audio , August 2010
The Clearaudio Concep t comes equipped with the new Magnify tonearm making this a complete, great sounding package. The Concept makes it easy to get started and is such a great table, it will really give you a real taste of high-end vinyl playback. Grab some of your favorite records and get prepared to spend all night in analog bliss.
"The Concept's simplicity is a big part of its charm, a 'plug and play' product straight from the box. It's worth taking a moment to admire the Concept's clean design and substantial finish. Dynamic potency is never in doubt, and the Concept's timing is crisp enough to grant momentum and drive to the trickiest of recordings without losing composure or focus. It's not all that long until Awards time again around these parts, and given the Clearaudio Concept's mighty showing here, it seems odds-on to make the shortlist!"

The new chassis is optimized for superior resistance to vibration and features a rounded high-mass plinth with a stainless steel surrounding it. The new specially-designed 1.2" Delrin platter is precision milled to provide a stable platform for your records and assists in maintaining accurate speed control. This belt-drive system uses a decoupled DC motor which helps keep noise away from the platter and stylus.
The Concept plays 33 1/3, 45 and 78 RPM , so no matter what record you choose from your collection a simple turn of the speed dial is all it takes.
