Beautiful Clearaudio Concept Dark Wood Turntable Features Baltic Birch Plinth for Refinement and Smoothness: Features Concept MM or MC Cartridge, Satisfy Black Tonearm, Electronic Speed Control
Composure, pace, poise: Clearaudio Concept Dark Wood turntable takes the award-winning Concept to a higher level via a constrained-layer plinth comprised of solid baltic birch with dark stain that yields additional refinement, richness, and smoothness to musical presentations. The German-made ‘table also warrants mention for its Satisfy Black tonearm and 30mm-thick platter featuring a weighted rim for flywheel effect. Working in concert with an aluminum sub-platter coupled to a sintered steel bearing shaft complete with bronze bearings and a Teflon thrust pad, the combination is responsible for optimum imaging and stability. An electronic speed control even gives Concept Dark Wood the ability to play at 33, 45, and 78RPM speeds. Now, no record is off-limits, and each one will sound great. And your choice of a pre-mounted Concept MC or MM phono cartridge ensures you'll hear the detail, dynamics, and nuances you deserve.
High-Tech Engineering, Three-Speed Capability at Turn of a Dial
On Concept Dark Wood, the aluminum machined sub-platter and rear-mounted fine speed adjustments are an upgrade from the original model. It is belt-driven by a low-noise, decoupled DC motor built into the 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. Concept Wood plays at three speeds (33RPM, 45RPM, and 78RPM) electable by an electronic speed control knob.
