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 MC : Plinth and platter
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 MC : Tonearm and cartridge
The tonearm is beautifully crafted and aligned. The speed selector switch built into the turntable is one of the most complete in the range.
To get the best results out of this turntable, Clearaudio specifically engineered a beautiful moving coil cartridge (MC) derived from the famous Talisman.
