Clearaudio Innovation Turntable (Demo)

Categories ,

“Outstanding Stability”

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.

“Turntable Engineering At Its Finest”

The platter rotates in a virtually frictionfree 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 tonearm.

Similarly to other Clearaudio turntables, the Innovation is manufactured in Germany with utmost precision whilst using the highest quality materials.

Please note that this item does not come fitted with a cartridge.
