A High-End Listening Experience
The Performance DC is a complete package designed to open up the high-end listening experience to those ambitious music lovers who are willing to handle with the basic features of tonearm and cartridge adjustment, and who simply seek the best in music reproduction.
An enhanced version of the Performance DC with wood chassis offers even greater resonance control. A newly developed DC motor with high precision bearings and flat belt-drive, in conjunction with a platter of 40mm thick POM which rests on a Clearaudio ceramic magnetic bearing (CMB), provide optimal conditions for the correct sampling of the record groove.
Elegant and Simple Appearance
The elegant and simple appearance of the Performance DC with its clear lines matches its excellent audio performance. For lovers of moving magnet (MM) cartridges, Clearaudio offer both versions of the Performance DC (with/without wood chassis) as a package with the Clarify tonearm and Virtuoso V2 cartridge. For those who prefer a moving coil (MC) cartridge, again both versions are offered as a package, featuring the Satisfy Kardan Aluminium tonearm and the outstanding Talisman V2 Gold cartridge. The third and ultimate option, again offered in both versions, is the peerless combination of the award-winning TT5 tangential tonearm and essence mc cartridge.
Excellent tracking properties and hyper-accurate speed synchronisation ensure the ultimate listening pleasure, whatever your choice Performance DC package. Combine your own Performance DC.
