CLEARAUDIO CONCEPT AIR DARK WOOD TURNTABLE
“I feel this table is the new benchmark in its price class. It combines simple setup with stunning good looks and performance to match.” – Jeff Dorgay, AnalogAholic USA
“The build quality of the Concept is impressive, and I would use the word refined to describe its look and quality.” - Jack Roberts, The Audio Beatnik USA
Beyond the entry to high-end analog, the Clearaudio Concept AiR Dark Wood adds a solid baltic-birch multiple ply plinth with dark stain and either the Satisfy Black or Satisfy Carbon Fiber tonearms. The result is a turntable combining classic appearance with real high-end dynamics and musicality.
It builds upon the strong features of the Concept: Belt-driven POM platter with weighted rim for enhanced flywheel effect; Isolated 12v DC Motor with electronic speed selection and rear-mounted speed calibration; Aluminum sub-platter coupled to a polished and sintered steel bearing shaft with bronze bushings and mirror polished Teflon thrust pad.
