Beneath the sleek, contemporary exterior is a level of technical sophistication unique to Clearaudio. The concepts body is carefully crafted from medium-density wood fiber (or, optionally, pressure-formed solid wood) with a selection of smart made-to-match surface finishes. The bodys upper layer incorporates a special high-tech satined plastic compound designed to minimize unwanted resonance.
The DC motor is fed by an external voltage-stabilized power supply and is completely decoupled from the turntables 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 Virtuoso Wood MM or Concept MC cartridge (Upgrade possible).Technical Specifications
