Clearaudio Concept Wood Turntable - SALE
Save up to $900 on the Clearaudio Concept Wood this summer!The Concept Wood turntable furthers the sonic excellence of the award-winning Concept turntable. The Concept Wood uses a baltic birch, constrained layer plinth that is both visually attractive and sonically rich and smooth. The aluminum machined sub-platter and rear-mounted fine speed adjustments are an upgrade from the original Concept design.
A Genuine, Timeless & Modern DesignThe Concept Wood is equipped with the Satisfy Black tonearm, which features a 3-point mechanical bearing, magnetic anti-skate, and hard-wired tonearm cable. You can upgrade to the Satisfy Carbon Fiber tonearm for enhanced musicality and imaging. A high-quality Clearaudio moving magnet (Concept MM) or moving coil (Concept MC) cartridge can be pre-mounted to complete this setup. The Concept is belt-driven by a low-noise, decoupled DC motor built into the baltic birch plinth. The platter is made of 30mm-thick polymer (POM), an engineering thermoplastic with a weighted rim for increased fly-wheel effect, providing greater speed stability. The Concept Wood plays at three speeds – 33rpm, 45rpm, and 78rpm – selectable by an Electronic Speed Control knob.
TAS Reviews the Concept WoodQuality at this performance level doesn't come cheap, especially when the components are handmade in Germany and CNC-machined in-house to exacting specifications - but this proved to be one hell of an outstanding, even addictive, analog setup. If you have the means for a turntable a cut above most of its competition, this should be on your short list. Highly recommended.
