Clearaudio Performance DC Turntable with Clarify tonearm & Virtuoso MM (Demo)

Category Tag

The Performance DC is the most advanced of our packages combining turntable, tonearm and cartridge. The Performance DC is a complete package designed to open up the high-end listening experience to those who prefer to avoid the selection and adjustment of separate cartridges or tonearms, and who simply seek the best in music reproduction. 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), provide optimal conditions for the correct sampling of the record groove.

The elegant and simple appearance of the Performance DC with its clear lines matches its excellent audio performance.
