The entry to high-end analog, the Concept turntable sets a new standard in turntable manufacturing. Precision German engineering combined with the latest technology and timeless design signal a new era in analog playback.

Made in Germany, the Concept is belt-driven by a low-noise, decoupled DC motor built into the resonant-optimized plinth. The platter is machined from 30mm-thick polyoxymethylene (POM), an engineering thermoplastic used in precision parts that require high stiffness, low friction, and excellent dimensional stability. The platter interfaces with a stainless-steel sub-platter, polished tempered steel bearing shaft within sintered bronze bushings, and a mirror polished teflon thrust pad.

The Concept plays at three speeds – 33rpm, 45rpm, and 78rpm – selectable by the Electronic Speed Control knob. The Concept is equipped with the innovative Concept tonearm, which features a friction-free magnetic bearing, ideal for the factory mounted Concept MM or MC cartridges. Upgrade to the Satisfy Black or Satisfy Carbon Fiber tonearms to optimize performance with the Maestro v2 or Charisma MM cartridges and top MC designs.

This genuine, timeless and modern design guarantees a high-end musical experience.
