Clearaudio has released the Smart Power 12V, a battery-based DC power supply upgrade designed for the brand’s own Concept and Performance DC turntables.
The Smart Power 12V partners intelligent circuit technology with long-lasting NiMH (nickel-metal hydride) rechargeable batteries to deliver 12V of pure, clean power that is independent of the variability and inherent noise of the mains supply. With a minimal output impedance, it delivers a steady, stable voltage, allowing your Concept or Performance DC turntable to maintain perfect speed stability and hence to perform as at its best.
The unit can be set to switch automatically from battery play mode into recharging mode and will continue to enhance your turntable’s performance and protect it from short circuits and power surges, even while charging.
When used with the Concept Active turntable, the Smart Power 12V’s benefits are multiplied, since both the turntable’s motor and the on-board phonostage are fed with pure, clean DC power.
Its elegant, low-key design includes a dimmable LCD display.
