Overview

Beneath the sleek, contemporary exterior is a level of technical sophistication unique to Clearaudio.

The concept’s body is carefully crafted from medium-density wood fiber (or, optionally, pressure-formed solid wood) with a selection of smart made-to-match surface finishes. The body’s upper layer incorporates a special high-tech satined plastic compound designed to minimize unwanted resonance.

The DC motor is fed by an external voltage-stabilized power supply and is completely decoupled from the turntable’s body to ensure no mechanical interference.

The concept tonearm features a magnetic bearing that is friction-free for extremely low distortion and superb performance. The package is completed with the high-quality CONCEPT MC cartridge (Upgrade possible).

Innovative, high-performing, user-friendly, and affordable. Now that’s what we call an unbeatable concept.

Just follow the steps below:

1. Remove the cartridge.

2. Adjust the counterweight so that the tonearm 'floats' while not in rest position.

3. Turn the anti-skating screw to get the position of the headshell of the tonearm right above the edge of the platter, where the lead-in groove would be.

4. Mark the position of the anti-skating screw by drawing a line with a pen from the screw head to the tonearm foot.

5. If you are mounting a Concept MM or any other Clearaudio MM V2 cartridge, turn the anti-skating screw 3 times anti-clockwise. If you are mounting a Clearaudio Concept MC cartridge, turn the anti-skating screw 4 times anti-clockwise.

6. Finally, mount your cartridge again and check the tracking force.

Please note this is just a quick guide for the standard Clearaudio cartridges provided with the Concept turntable.

If a cartridge isn't protected by a proper stylus guard, in our experience the most common causes of broken needles are free-roaming pets, overzealous cleaners and high-spirited children! We recommend always using a stylus guard when the turntable is not in use. If you don't have a stylus guard, you can request a replacement from our team at Dubai Audio and we'd be hapy to help!

Ideally, our Clearaudio cartridges can be used for several decades. External influences such as climate, temperature, humidity, intensity of use, maintenance and the condition of your records can affect the lifespan of the cartridge.

The part subject to wear and tear is not the diamond, but the rubber-silicone overlay of the cantilever, which can lose flexibility over the years.

If you suspect wear and tear of your cartridge, you can have it double-checked at our store located at Sheikh Zayed Road.
