Clearaudio Concept AiR Turntable: The Gateway to High-End Analog Playback
Welcome to the future of analog playback. The Clearaudio Concept AiR Turntable, made in Germany, combines precision engineering, the latest technology, and timeless design to set a new standard in turntable manufacturing.
Superior Performance with Low-Noise AiR Motor
The Concept AiR is belt-driven by a new low-noise, decoupled AiR air-core DC 12-volt motor, built into the resonant-optimized plinth. This motor, similar to the air-core DC 24-volt motor used in the Reference Jubilee, Innovation, and Ovation, provides superior performance and speed stability. Experience greater dynamics, better imaging, and enhanced musicality with this vastly improved motor.
High-Quality Materials for Optimal Sound
The platter of the Concept AiR is machined from 30mm-thick polyoxymethylene (POM), an engineering thermoplastic used in precision parts that require high stiffness, low friction, and excellent dimensional stability. The platter interfaces with a stainless-steel sub-platter, polished tempered steel bearing shaft within sintered bronze bushings, and a mirror-polished Teflon thrust pad.
Three Speeds for Versatile Playback
The Concept AiR plays at three speeds – 33rpm, 45rpm, and 78rpm – selectable by the Electronic Speed Control knob. This feature allows you to enjoy your vinyl records exactly how you want to.
Innovative Tonearm and Cartridge Options
The Concept AiR comes equipped with the innovative Satisfy Black tonearm, which is ideal for the factory-mounted Concept MM or MC cartridges. For those seeking to optimize performance, upgrade to the Satisfy Carbon Fiber tonearm to pair with the Maestro v2 or Charisma MM cartridges and top MC designs.
