The Clearaudio Innovation

The goal of high-end analogue is to perfectly merge technology, workmanship and design and subordinate them to one single target: the best possible music reproduction. At Clearaudio, all development, design and production remain firmly in the hands of a perfectly experienced and attuned team of specialists who never lose sight of that goal, and who uphold the Clearaudio philosophy and high quality standards.

From the tiniest part to the full audiophile ‘Gesamtkunstwerk’ (a complete work of art that draws on many art forms), at Clearaudio everything is meticulously made by hand – with maximum precision and plenty of passion. Precision-crafted mechanics and the use of components fine-tuned for density, mass and shape guarantee mechanical harmony and the absence of resonance when playing records.

The ingredients are high-density multi-layered wood, titanium, stainless steel V2A, aluminium and specially developed high-performance plastics. Two parameters are of critical importance: maximum performance of music playback and technically effective design, as well as the aesthetic beauty of our creations.

A Selection of Clearaudio tonearms and cartridges are available, at extra cost, to suit this turntable.



Description

Clearaudio Innovation

Overview

In the world of turntable construction the Clearaudio Innovation is the ultimate technological prototype.

An infrared sensor combined with Clearaudio’s optical speed control (OSC) ensures an outstanding level of speed stability – a prerequisite for optimal listening. A high-torque decoupled DC motor effortlessly rotates the precision-machined 70mm-thick platter made of high-density acrylic. The platter rotates in a virtually friction free environment atop the 15mm-thick stainless steel sub platter, thanks to Clearaudio’s patented ceramic magnetic bearing (CMB). A convenient choice of three rotational speeds is also at your fingertips, and it is possible to install a second tone arm.

Black finishes as in the second and third images attract a slightly higher price.
