Clearaudio Innovation Wood Turntable
An Absolute Sound Golden Ear Award winner, the Clearaudio Innovation Wood features a resonance-optimized dual tier chassis based upon proven Clearaudio three-point design – a combination of Panzerholz (bulletproof wood), aluminum skins, and aluminum pods. Its high-density, dynamically balanced 2.75” POM platter is mated to a half inch thick, CNC-machined stainless steel sub-platter and Clearaudio’s patented CMB (ceramic magnetic bearing) technology, where the platter magnetically levitates on an inverted bearing attached to a low-friction ceramic shaft. A high-torque DC motor exclusive to Clearaudio is equipped with an OSC (optical speed control) circuit controlled in real time via an infrared sensor. The end result is a highly musical, detailed presentation with very accurate pitch and exceptional rhythm and pace. The Innovation Wood is also dual tonearm capable and plays 33 1/3 rpm, 45 rpm and 78 rpm speeds. Magnify tonearm included; options include Universal 9″ tonearm (+$1,500) and TT-2 Tonearm (+$6,000).
Available in Black or Silver w/natural wood, and Black or Silver w/ piano black lacquer wood (+$700).
