“Everything about the [Concept] tonearm—how it looks, its smooth cuing mechanism, its high-quality wiring and cartridge clips—speaks of Clearaudio’s attention to detail, and of a genuine attempt to give the buyer of this moderately priced turntable a substantial tonearm that’s pleasing to look at and smooth in operation.” – Michael Fremer, Stereophile, June 2011


The Concept tonearm is Clearaudio’s most affordable tonearm. It features their proven friction-free magnetic bearing technology, which eliminates bearing chatter and offers superior stability. The aluminum arm tube is both light rigid while the two-piece aluminum headshell with adjustable azimuth allows for the accurate alignment of any phono cartridge type. An adjustable counterweight and anti-skating control provides easy, accurate cartridge alignment. Clearaudio’s hardwired Direct Wire tonearm cable assures signal integrity, ideal for all high-quality cartridges, including low-output moving coils.

The Concept tonearm uses the Clearaudio/Linn standard mount, making it compatible with all Clearaudio turntables and an ideal replacement tonearm for other turntable brands.
