Clearaudio Performance DC Turntable

The Performance DC shares sophisticated technology with Clearaudio’s award-winning Ovation and Innovation series turntables, featuring our magnetic levitating bearing and composite construction for outstanding sound.

The most affordable turntable with Clearaudio’s patented CMB (Ceramic Magnetic Bearing) combining a polished ceramic inverted bearing shaft, machined aluminum spindle top, and strong magnet rings, provides low friction and isolates vibrational energy from your cartridge's sensitive stylus.

The Performance DC’s main composite chassis sandwiches a medium density wood core between two massive anodized aluminum plates A band of anodized aluminum is wrapped around the plinth’s core, giving the Performance DC an elegant and modern look.

The powerful and smooth-running DC motor is mounted to the composite main chassis and is effectively decoupled for enhanced dynamic range. The motor and belt are hidden from view, protected from dust and UV. They drive a precision machined aluminum sub-platter coupled to a 40mm thick polyoxymethylene (POM) platter with weighted rim, supported by Clearaudio’s patented CMB.

The Performance DC’s 33, 45, and 78 rpm speeds are selected with blue illuminated buttons, ergonomically integrated into the front left of the chassis. Fine speed adjustment is possible via user-accessible trim pots. The Performance DC comes fitted with Tracer tonearm with the optional Satisfy Carbon Fiber tonearm or TT-5 linear tracking tonearm.
