Performance DC turntable package with TT5 tangential tonearm & Essence MC cartridge

The Performance DC is a complete turntable package designed to open up the high-end listening experience to those who prefer to avoid having to select and adjust separate tonearms and cartridges, and who simply seek the best in music reproduction. 

A newly developed DC motor with high precision bearings and 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 accurate sampling of the record groove. 

The elegant and simple appearance of the Performance DC with its clear lines matches its excellent audio performance. When married with the TT5 tangential tonearm and the Essence MC cartridge, this turntable package leaves virtually nothing to be desired. Excellent tracking properties and hyper-accurate speed synchronisation ensure the ultimate listening pleasure.
