This is a used black Clearaudio Performance turntable with Clearaudio Satisfy carbon tonearm. (The cartridge in the photos is not included) It has not seen that much use, is roughly 4 years old, and truly in excellent condition. I can't find a significant mark on it (There are photographic glare artifacts in the pictures), and I am pretty picky when it comes to that stuff. It plays perfectly and will come in the original box with the cotton gloves, protractor, allen wrenches, manual, etc. It plays 331/3 as well as 45 and uses a stand alone motor.
If you know turntables you know Clearaudio. They have been making exceptional turntables in Germany for many years. In this model, they use a unique ceramic magnetic bearing assembly (CMB) that literally floats the spindle, thus lowering the noise floor. In other words, where the spindle normally sits on a metal bering in most turntables, thus producing metal to metal noise, here the 40mm acrylic platter and spindle float and never sit on the bering itself, but on a cushion created by magnets. This design works extremely well.
The arm with turntable listed for $2800 and even the included Satisfy Carbon Fiber tonearm sells for over $1500 alone.
I try to ship within 1 or 2 days max of receiving cleared funds per the bank or Paypal. There is no extra charge for using Paypal. If using Paypal I follow their rules and suggestions, only shipping to a certified / confirmed addresses. Though shipping in it's original box with original packing, insurance and delivery confirmation will be necessary.
