BRAND NEW Clearaudio Performance DC turntable in black finish with black plinth.  Includes Satisfy Kardan black tonearm and Virtuoso V2 cartridge.   Pictured for reference is a stock photo (bundled with a Clarify tonearm instead).  Interesting trades considered. In-store pickup please.  1-833-527-3336.


The Clearaudio Performance contains all the design elements of precision turntables and adds super quiet magnetic levitation bearing.
The result is an incredible refined product. 

Made in Bavaria, Germany it is close to perfect, especially when it comes to price/performance and the materials used for production:

- The Tracer radial tonearm may look beautifully minimalistic, yet  beneath its sleek design you’ll find a wealth of workmanship and a raft of smart details.

Drawing on engineering tricks from the finest watchmakers, it features a high-precision, lowfriction jeweled bearing, judiciously crafted from tungsten and sapphire. The carbon tonearm tube is both extremely rigid and very lightweight, giving a perfect combination of stability and agility. 

The Performance DC’s main composite chassis sandwiches a medium density wood core between two massive anodized aluminum plates that creates a immensely stiff constrained layer sandwich. The result is a foundation for the tonearm that is free of resonance, and preserves dynamics and transients.


- The powerful and smooth-running DC motor is mounted to the composite main chassis and is effectively decoupled for enhanced dynamic range. The motor and belt are hidden from view, protected from dust and UV. They drive a precision machined aluminum sub-platter coupled to a 40mm thick polyoxymethylene (POM) platter with weighted rim, supported by Clearaudio’s patented CMB.

Clearaudio's patented Ceramic Magnetic Bearing (CMB) is the result of long-term research and development.

Two opposing magnetic fields are perfectly aligned one on top of the other, thereby rejecting each other. The magnetic fields are completely shielded from the outside through the careful application of very sophisticated materials. A high precision ceramic vertical shaft fits perfectly into a bronze bearing. This perfect fit is essential and can only be achieved through the highest precision hand polishing.

High-performance synthetic oil is used for lubrication. The combination of these carefully selected components produces the effect of the turntable platter effectively floating on an air cushion, rather than on a ball bearing or bearing point.
The result of this technology? One of the lowest levels of friction in turntable bearing design, previously unreached rumble measurements and an unbeatable new standard in speed accuracy.
