CLEARAUDIO PERFORMANCE DC WOOD

The Performance DC Wood is the latest turntable offering from Clearaudio combining the popular Performance DC turntable with features and technology from their higher tier Ovation and Innovation series turntables.

About

A mass-loaded Baltic birch plinth gives the Performance DC Wood a stunning visual appearance while also controlling resonance. Three Innovation series locking/leveling aluminum cone feet provide a stable base and acoustic isolation. The Performance DC Wood incorporates precision machined aluminum sub-platter fitted to a 40mm-thick POM platter, Clearaudio’s patented, ultra-smooth Ceramic Magnetic Bearing (CMB), and a decoupled DC motor with electronic speed selection. 

The Performance DC Wood’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. The Performance DC Wood’s interchangeable armboard design can easily accommodate a variety of tonearms including the Clearaudio  Verify Carbon Fiber, Satisfy Carbon FiberClarify, Magnify and TT-5 linear tonearm.
