Clearaudio Concept Black Turntable (Satisfy Arm Packages)
The Clearaudio Concept Black is an upgraded package which includes:
-Concept Black or Dark Wood Turntable
-Satisfy Kardan Black Tonearm
-Performer V2 MM Cartridge
This is a factory bundle, all components fully installed, set up and tested by Clearaudio.
Cartridges in photos may be different from the Performer V2. The Dark Wood option shown is $500 more - the plinth uses a different construction and is more labour-intensive to build.
*All models subject to availability, please call or email us for details.
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 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.
Innovative, high-performing, user-friendly and affordable. Now that’s what we call an unbeatable Concept.
SATISFY KARDAN ARM
Designed for use with a wide range of turntables and cartridges, the award-winning Satisfy Kardan incorporates a range of features normally associated with some of the very best tonearms. The Kardan Black features a black aluminum arm tube.
A precise, magnetic antiskating adjustment with a gentle sensitiveness, without mechanic disturbance - for pure music.
Become a witness of revolutionary direct wiring, where the signal travels uninterrupted from the cartridge to the Phono-preamplifier.
Only a few amongst the best offer this feature – it's one of a kind.
