The 'Concept' line was developed with the aim to offer a high-end, affordable and ready-to-use product. Although the manufacturer is now a benchmark in many higher-end segments, they still require a level of expertise for mounting and setup that not everyone is blessed with.
Clearaudio Concept MM : Plinth and platter
With the Concept pack, novices will be able to enjoy their Clearaudio vinyl turntable immediately, without having to reach out for their toolbox.
The design quality is one of the best on the market. The rigid plinth and platter have been specifically designed to be completely inert to mechanical and acoustic vibrations.
Clearaudio Concept MM : Tonearm
The tonearm is beautifully crafted and aligned.
To get the best results out of this Clearaudio, a beautiful moving magnet cartridge derived from the Aurum MM Classic cartridge was specifically designed for it.
Clearaudio Concept MM : Change speed
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 rpm, 45 rpm and 78 rpm!
Clearaudio Concept MM : Listening and test review
The results are a match to the resources used.
As expected, the musicality and neutrality are not lacking. The tonal balance is extremely precise, making this turntable one of the most versatile we have seen so far.
A safe buy that we can only recommend!
