Beneath the refined, contemporary exterior lies a level of technical sophistication unique to Clearaudio. The Concept’s chassis comprises a core of natural medium-density wood fibre within an aluminium surround and upper layer incorporating a high tech synthetic compound. This composite of materials eliminates the detrimental effects caused by unwanted vibrations.
The DC motor is fed by an external voltage-stabilized power supply and is completely decoupled from the chassis, isolating the record from any mechanical interference. The Concept tonearm features a magnetic bearing that is friction-free for extremely low distortion and superb performance.
