About the Product
Analog recording is still very alive. Quality turntables are still in demand. Digital discs simply set new performance standards that turntables must meet. Many cherished records may never be issued on digital formats. Good turntables are now more important than ever. Marantz embraces an audiophile quality turntable with AC servo belt-drive and low-coloration tone arm to answer the need for a high performance source component for the analog record.
Clearaudio's vision for the concept: design an elegantly styled turntable package featuring a level of groundbreaking technology usually only found in high-end turntables, combining plug-and-play simplicity with outstanding sound quality and affordability.

What customers say about "Key Specs"
Clearaudio Concept MM V2 Black TP065/mm Black Turntable Belt
  • Very happy with this table. Although can't say I'm an expert in TT and vinyl, what I can say is it's easy to set up and operate.
  • I am quite pleased with the turntable: it’s dead silent in operation
  • I like that the speed change is on the deck itself.
  • Concept Black is a model for how a mid-priced, belt-drive turntable should look and perform.
  • This is a super turntable. Stylish, almost retro in conception but what a sound for the price!

What customers say about "Audio"
Clearaudio Concept MM V2 Black TP065/mm Black Turntable Belt
  • The sound is wonderful and relatively quiet.
  • Just a very smooth treble and midrange with an extended bass.
  • This turntable is awesome! I upgraded from a Pro-ject Debut III, and this table is a million times better! The sound is incredible!
  • Not sure if it's the table or the vinyl, listening for hours is non-fatiguing and yet very satisfying.
  • I'm running this in to my ATC preamps with onboard phono stage and then in to ATC P2 Pro amp driving PMC IB2 SE speakers. It makes for a very enjoyable listening experience

  • I'm very happy with the deck so far and am playing lots of vinyl to prove it.
  • It is worth the money even if you need to buy a preamp. I absolutely love it.
  • Easy to set up- just plug in and play and you will enjoy precision German engineering at modest cost.
  • It has the same frictionless magnetic bearing. The arm makes no contact at the bearing housing whatsoever
