Clearaudio, with its 'Concept' series, has developed a top-of-the-line product that is affordable and ready to use.
Following the success of the Concept series, the German manufacturer has enhanced the range with 'WOOD' versions.
At first sight, you could think that a veneer has been added to the side of the turntable for a more vintage look! ...There is actually more to it than meets the eye!
In fact, this 'WOOD' variant is not made of MDF like Clearaudio's Concept MM turntable, it features a multilayer birch veneer. The sonic benefits of this material are recognised by sound technicians and audiophiles. Many used multilayer wood to make high quality Hi-Fi cabinets. In the 70's, some British monitoring speakers (the best) were made out of multilayer birch wood for greater neutrality (Rogers LS5/9…).
The platter is made of a high-density neutral composite material: P.O.M.
The speed selector switch built into the turntable is one of the most complete in the range. Actually, without options, you can select between 33, 45 and 78 RPM!
In this version, the DC motor features a control card with 3 mini potentiometers to control the platter's rotation on all 3 playback speeds!
It features the great 9-inch tonearm with its magnetic bearing.
It is paired with the great moving magnet cartridge, Clearaudio's Concept MM cartridge.
The sonic performance is superb, as you would expect from a manufacturer like Clearaudio.
The results are quite similar to the standard version, with dramatic improvement in terms of dynamics and articulation.
Some registers also seem to be sharper. It boasts great tonal balance and transparency.
Clearaudio's Concept MM Wood turntable, in addition to being beautiful, is amazingly efficient and musical. Its neutrality makes it one of the most versatile models in the range.
We highly recommended it!
