Nat Recommends:



While you technically can chose just about any Clearaudio tonearm & cartridge combination to go with your new Clearaudio Performance DC turntable, that kind of "Sophie's choice" can be overwhelming. Especially if it is down to guesswork.

I have done some hard yakka, listening to various tonearm/cartridge combinations on this turntable & what I've distilled the choices down to are two excellent value propositions.

For lovers of moving magnet (MM) cartridges, I recommend the Performance DC as a package with the Tracer 9" Tonearm & the versatile Artist V2 Cartridge.

For those who prefer a moving coil (MC) cartridge, I highly recommend a package, featuring the Clarify Tonearm & the outstanding Essence MC Cartridge.
