The Performance DC is a complete package designed to open up the high-end listening experience to those who prefer to avoid the selection and adjustment of separate cartridges or tonearms, 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 correct sampling of the record groove.


The elegant and simple appearance of the Performance DC with its clear lines matches its excellent audio performance. With the TT5, Clearaudio offers vinyl fans a more affordable entry point into tangential tonearm technology. The TT5's surprising and excellent value for money is down to eschewing one or two of the features of its 'big brothers', the TT2 and TT3.

For example, the TT5 adopts a new, fully rigid design. However, for those who still want the convenience the bigger arms' ability to swing out of the way when loading records, Clearaudio have created the optional TT5 swing base which, as it's name suggests, allows the entire arm assembly to be swung out of the way when changing records (available as an option).

And the MC Essence cartridge combines high-quality moving coil technology with a minimalist design. The boron cantilever, the micro-line stylus and of course the Clearaudio-patented moving coil generator have been subjected to the most stringent scrutiny, thus ensuring superb dynamics, fine resolution and channel matching of better than 0.5dB.
