Clearaudio Innovation Turntable

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.
