Clearaudio Performance DC turntable

The Performance DC is a complete package designed to open up the high-end listening experience to those ambitious music lovers who are willing to deal with the basic features of tonearm and cartridge adjustment. A newly developed DC motor with high precision bearings and belt drive, in conjunction with a platter of 40mm-thick POM which rests on a Clearaudio ceramic magnetic bearing (CMB).
