If you own a Clearaudio Concept turntable (any model) our upgrade kit will give you an immediate sound quality improvement.
The kit consists of our fully regulated linear power supply and a set of The Funk Firm Boing isolation feet. The power supply provides a constant output voltage to replace the switch mode power supply bundled with your deck. Cheap and noisy the SMPS does nothing for sound quality and can actually be detrimental to your hifi systems sound quality, proven by customer feedback. The isolation feet decouple your turntable from the surface it rests on to avoid vibrations from footfall, outside traffic etc. The feet simply screw directly to your Concept in place of the existing feet.
The power supplies are made to suit your country, 100V, 120V, 230V and come supplied with a power cord as standard with the appropriate plug on UK, EU, USA, AUS etc.
MAINS CABLE R US CLEARAUDIO CONCEPT PSU REVIEW
I shall get to the point immediately. The Mains Cable R Us Clearaudio Concept PSU is an absolute must buy. Owners of the turntable should not hesitate, the PSU is an outright bargain.
Now for some supporting arguments. Firstly, apart from my Clearaudio Concept MC turntable, I own a VPI Superscoutmaster Rim Drive with a Continuum Audio Cobra arm and a Well Tempered Amadeus, incidentally with an after market PSU. Not surprisingly, the Clearaudio cannot do the things that the 2 other tables can accomplish. Nevertheless, it is something of a giant killer and it has been justly lauded.
I had always thought that the Clearaudio could do more and I had a nagging suspicion that the standard wall wart style PSU was a significant impediment to what it might be able to achieve.
The audio press is full of rave reviews and endless numbers of superlatives wear thin. So when something comes along that is actually fantastic, our verbal armaments are somewhat depleted.
I did expect the Mains Cable R US PSU to result in sonic improvements but to be honest a modest increment would have satisfied me. After all, the unit is not expensive. However, I was a little startled at how good the thing was. The sound became mellifluous and detailed, lovely analogue, no more mechanical edge. The sound stage expanded in all directions, imaging became more holographic, there was far greater transparency, there was much more musical authority and coherence. Much greater harmonic complexity emerged. The layering of musical lines was far better resolved. I listened to large scale orchestral works, chamber music and jazz.
The Clearaudio Concept Turntable is transformed by this PSU. It is a combination that is embarrassingly good. Something to recommend to friends.
