The Concept Wood AiR turntable furthers the sonic excellence of the award-winning Concept turntable. The Concept Wood AiR uses a Baltic Birch, constrained layer plinth that is both visually attractive and sonically rich and smooth. The aluminum machined sub-platter and rear-mounted fine speed adjustments are an upgrade from the original Concept design. The Concept Wood AiR Turntable is handcrafted by Clearaudio in Germany. 

This limited edition plug-and-play package available exclusively through Paragon Sight & Sound!


The Concept AiR Wood is belt-driven by a low-noise, decoupled DC motor built into the baltic birch plinth. The platter is made of 30mm-thick polymer (POM), an engineering thermoplastic with a weighted rim for increased fly-wheel effect, providing greater speed stability. The Concept Wood plays at three speeds – 33rpm, 45rpm, and 78rpm – selectable by the Electronic Speed Control knob.


Concept MM

Clearaudio's V2 MM technology uses ebony as a resonance resistant body. Other ingredients of the recipe for success are the most effective reduction of moving mass, an optimized polishing technique for the stylus and highly effective cartridge damping. Clearaudio’s Concept V2 MM is the entry level cartridge from Clearaudio


Concept Tonearm

The Concept Tonearm features Clearaudio's proven friction-free magnetic bearing technology, which eliminates bearing chatter and offers superior stability. The Concept tonearm's magnetic bearing allows the Concept turntable to be shipped with cartridge pre-installed and calibrated. The low mass, rigid aluminum arm tube uses a two-piece aluminum headshell with adjustable azimuth for accurate alignment of the phono cartridge and easy in-field replacement. Clearaudio’s hardwired Direct Wire tonearm cable assures signal integrity, ideal for all high-quality cartridges, including low-output moving coils.
