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. (NOTE: What looks like a nick in the edge of the plinth near the Performance label photo is really a slight dull spot in the edge finish of about 1/8 inch. It is not a nick or ding type indentation as it looks in the photo.)
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.
