Clearaudio Concept Wood Turntable
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.

Clearaudio Concept Wood
I’ve owned the Clearaudio Concept Wood for just over two years. I originally ordered it with the Satisfy Tonearm and Maestro MM cartridge. I’ve since replaced the cartridge with the Kiseki Blue NS MC cartridge and I could not be happier with its performance. With a 2.4 gram tracking weight for the Kiseki, it delivers outstanding sound and an amazing soundstage that draws you into the music.
I’ve paired this turntable with a Marantz PM-10 and Goldenear Triton Two + floor standing speakers with AudioQuest interconnect and speaker cables.
