    MY TAKE:


    The Clearaudio turntables are beautifully designed and finely crafted examples of German workmanship. - Galen Carol


    Performance DC: a turntable package in a whole new class

    Are you looking for top-drawer high-end performance combined with ease of set-up and use? The Performance DC is the most advanced of our packages combining turntable, tonearm and cartridge. The Performance DC features a built-in DC motor designed to deliver exceptional smoothness and fine adjustment of speeds, in conjunction with a precision-machined 40mm-thick black POM platter which provides excellent acoustic properties. The platter rests on Clearaudio's patented ceramic magnetic bearing (CMB) which, by using a magnetic field to effectively float the bearing on air, reduces friction, wear and noise by avoiding any point of load.
     

    The simple and refined design of the Performance DC with its clean lines and elegant finish matches its excellent audio performance. Combined with Clearaudio's Clarify carbon tonearm and Virtuoso V2 MM cartridge, the Performance DC offers a complete solution to the audiophile, delivering a turntable package in a whole new class.


    REVIEWS:
     

    "For years Clearaudio has been filling its treasure chests: with its own magnetic bearing, carbon tone-arm, pick-up, precision engineering know how ... In the Performance DC all of this has now been brought together. In thoroughly attractive form, but at a price that is much too low.“ - Andreas Günther, AudioPhile
     

    "If a product seems almost too upmarket to be true, you look twice as critically at the measurement results. But in the case of the Performance DC they are pretty well perfect [...] ultra-stable and way above the price class.“ - Andreas Günther, AudioPhile
