- The new Clearaudio Speed Light V2 from Clearaudio electronic GmbH is designed for precise adjustment of the engine speed.
If you want to achieve impeccable results with a record player, it is essential to set it up perfectly. It is not for nothing that some people refer to a record player as a precision instrument, with a number of parameters requiring the utmost attention when it comes to correct adjustment. Companies such as Clearaudio electronic GmbH therefore always endeavour to provide their customers with the appropriate tools for their turntables.
The range of accessories from Clearaudio electronic GmbH naturally includes a variety of aids, including a solution for precise adjustment of the motor speed. This is now even available in a new version as Clearaudio Speed Light V2.
The correct speed
The motor speed is a decisive criterion for the best possible quality in record playback, in several respects. Firstly, of course, a constant speed is required, but the correct speed itself is also crucial, and this can be achieved with the help of the new Clearaudio Speed Light V2 in combination with strobe discs.
New generation with numerous improvements
The new, as the name suggests, second generation of this tool is characterised by a number of improvements, as the manufacturer promises. For example, a white LED is now used instead of the previous blue one, which should drastically improve the visibility of the lines indicating the speed on the stroboscope disc.
A CR2023 lithium button cell is now fitted inside, which should allow a significantly longer operating time. According to the manufacturer, a conscious decision was made in favour of a battery rather than a rechargeable battery, although the option of continuous current operation is offered as an alternative. Instead, the new Clearaudio Speed Light V2 is equipped with a micro USB port.
Last but not least, it should be noted that the new Clearaudio Speed Light V2 now has an aluminium housing, which replaces the previous plastic. This not only improves durability, but also makes it much more appealing to the touch and aesthetics, especially as it has a black anodised finish.
Various bundles available
It should also be noted that, according to the manufacturer, the new Clearaudio Speed Light V2 is perfectly suited for use with the in-house Stroboskop test disc. In this respect, the Clearaudio Speed Light V2 is not only offered as a stand-alone tool, but also in a bundle with various solutions such as the Clearaudio Stroboscope Testrecord, the Clearaudio Multi Installation Gauge and the Clearaudio Analogue Toolkit.

Individually, the new Clearaudio Speed Light V2 costs € 150,- and is now available directly from Clearaudio electronic GmbH in the web shop.
