The Concept’s concept is simple: to deliver an elegantly styled turntable package featuring a level of technology usually only found in high-end turntables, combining plug-and-play simplicity with outstanding sound Clearaudio Concept Wood MCquality and affordability.

In 2012, one Concept became two, as Clearaudio added an ‘MC’ version featuring the Concept MC (moving coil) cartridge in addition to the existing MM (moving magnet) package.

The company’s recent press release has this to say about the new Concept “Now, the new Concept ‘Wood’ option takes the range even further both visually and sonically: its fine wood construction in multilayered Baltic birch is not only visually stunning, it also provides more harmonious resonance control, resulting in a more natural timbre and improved transparency”.

All versions of the Concept have now also received a number of upgrades including a brand new tonearm and one or two enhancements to the turntable itself.

The tonearm is now Clearaudio’s Verify Direct Wire Plus, a new edition of the earlier Verify. The ‘Direct Wire’ in question is pure oxygen-free copper in a pseudo-balanced cable with perfectly symmetrical construction, running in an unbroken length from cartridge tags to phono plugs. The arm cables have been re-routed to pass through a redesigned arm bearing assembly and arm pillar, giving a cleaner and sleeker external finish. The turntable also now sports new adjustable and lockable rubber tipped feet..
All critical parameters from cartridge tracking weight to anti-skating are ready-adjusted, leaving you to simply sit back and enjoy a true high fidelity plug-and-play experience.
