The Clearaudio Concept Turntable is a new benchmark in turntable manufacturing. The highest standards of German engineering are well represented, with new technology and timeless design merged seamlessly in this 3-speed turntable. It is equipped with an innovative, friction-free magnetic tonearm bearing, a resonance-optimized platter, and can arrive completely set-up with a Clearaudio Cartridge for spectacular vinyl enjoyment – from the moment you open the box, and for many years after.watch What Hi-Fi Awards 2009 videoUser ManualStereophile Review
Fitted with the Concept MC cartridge, Clearaudio's plug'n'play Concept turntable-tonearm-cartridge combo is exceptionally attractive, easy to set up and use, and seems better built than its price would suggest. It's a quiet, smooth performer that excels at midrange smoothness and transparency of the sort that makes speakers seem to vanish—even my $65,000/pair speakers.What Hifi Review
The Clearaudio Concept is a great all-rounder: it's easy to set up, easy to use and sounds great. At this price point, it's king.Audiophilia Review
Analogue has been buried, creamated, decimated many times over the past fifty years. All, premature. Yet, the iPod generation is now getting grey hair and that scares me a little. I’m not sure that the dental floss, massive platter, vacuum pump, dodgy arm brigade Renaissance will continue. But, audiophiles will always want a good system to play records, and at a solid price. Rega, Pro-Ject, and Roksan offer great gear at good prices. I’ve loved my time with Roksan and Rega, however, if I had to choose one, it’d be the Clearaudio Concept. It’s a dream for analogue fans on an austerity program. As such, buy with confidence. Very highly recommended.tech radar Review
If the disc is rock, the Concept rocks. If jazz, it swings. If romantic, it smooches. Watching the analogue renaissance over the last few years has been a heartening experience.
Clearaudio's combination of audio and aesthetic design has produced a winning combination here which we feel sure will both win converts and keep them devoted to the analogue cause.TAS Review

One of the most encompassing hallmarks of excellence a product can possibly acquire is the award for "High Quality", for it embodies the manufacturer's effort to deliver nothing but the utmost quality on the one hand and, on the other, the seal represents both durability and sustainability. Hence, "High Quality" products are contrasting strongly with the bulk of mass-produced goods that are made for prompt consumption and replacement. "High Quality" products are genuine investments into the future.pro-K Product of the Year 2010
