Clearaudio Performance DC Turntable


Free Lifetime Technical Assistance
SKU: Performance DC
Brand: Clearaudio


The Performance DC shares sophisticated technology with
Clearaudio’s award-winning Ovation and Concept turntables, placing it
in the middle of this series of three turntables featuring outstanding sound,
unmatched value and ease of use.


The Performance DC’s main composite chassis consists of a
specific density wood core sandwiched between two massive anodized aluminum
plates. A band of polished silver aluminum is wrapped around the plinth’s core,
giving the Performance DC an elegant and modern look.

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, supported by Clearaudio’s
patented CMB (Ceramic Magnetic Bearing).

The Performance DC’s 33, 45, and 78 rpm speeds
are selected by blue illuminated buttons, ergonomically integrated into
the front left of the chassis. Precision adjustability is possible for each
speed via user-accessible trim pots.
