The Composer 1 was a strictly limited edition of 30. However the development and improvement have continued, with added mass sub platters, improved arm mounts, improvements to the massive foot arrangement, power supplies and crucially decoupling. The good news is that these are available as upgrades for all owners of these turntables, even ones sold originally by Claro.
Improved foot configuration
Technically the Composer turntables are second to none. They consist of a plinth made from aluminium machined to a tolerance of +/- 0.01mm which is mounted on three machined aluminium feet. We then have the first centrally mounted CNC machined sub-platter this is perfectly concentric and balanced, If desired our second mass sub-platter can be added, this adds mass, improves rotational stability and gives a strobe marking, (ideal for fine tuning speeds when using one of our power supplies). Then you have the solid “Acetal” acrylic platter, these are machined and offered in the black.
High mass strobe sub-platter
We have gone further by adding cosmetic upgrades too, we now can offer a clear perspex cover system that literally encapsulates the deck when not it use, protecting it from dust, etc. In it’s original guise as the Clarity ’09 the deck was highly acclaimed by reviewers with Adam Smith of Hi-Fi World saying:-
“On first perusal, it is not difficult to work out that a precision engineering company brought it here from the drawing board. Lest we forget, the likes of Avid and SME are also precision engineers who make components for other industries, so the fact that I mentioned Claro in the same sentence as them for their first product is praise indeed. And it is certainly well deserved, as the deck is fabulously finished.
The deck is magnificently designed, built and finished, and this shines through in its sound, which is confident, bold, detailed and never less than captivating“.
