This quote from our founder, Peter Suchy, is not just his personal philosophy. It's the philosophy of Clearaudio as a whole.
Peter is a man with vision. Not satisfied with the status quo, he's always searching for the next improvement, the next level of evolution. He's not content to follow trends, but prefers to create them and to set new standards.
Peter's ethos is reflected in Clearaudio's constantly evolving range of products. Every single one of them, from the smallest connector to the most complex turntable, in corporates two key characteristics: innovation and quality.
Clearaudio's wide and ever-growing range of products is no accident. Right from the start, back in 1978, we decided to offer a complete range of all the products needed for excellent analogue music reproduction. Within our first year we were already the first company worldwide to use boron for our cartridge cantilevers! We haven't stopped innovating since.
At Clearaudio, innovation happens at many different levels. Ongoing technological invention. Constantly striving for more intelligent use of materials. Developing new processes that enable us to achieve what hasn't been achievable before. We don't look to see what other companies are doing. We look to see what's still possible, what's just beyond our current reach - and that's where we set our sights.
Quality means excellence in design, engineering, craftsmanship and using only the best materials. To ensure we achieve this level of quality every time, all of our products are hand built in our own factory in Erlangen, Germany. In fact almost every part that goes into a Clearaudio product is made in-house. Where outsourced parts are supplied by our partners, most are located in Germany and certified to the highest standards.
We're very proud of our team of highly qualified designers, engineers and precision mechanics, as well as our own in-house production methods which enable us to reproduce a consistently high level of quality across our full product range, from cartridges to record cleaning machines.
Throughout the design and production process, we continually listen to, test and measure our products' performance both acoustically and technically, and documentall results. In fact we've even designed new measurement techniques and equipment to meet our standards, which are considerably above the average.
Clearaudio customers can be assured that we're continually doing everything possible to ensure excellence and to surpass current standards. With every Clearaudio component, we guarantee you top level performance and high-end quality that is built to last.
Our products fulfil international market standards such as EMV, CE and UL. Original high quality spare parts are available for 25 years.
Clearaudio is very much a family business. As we said above, we're very proud of our team. Together, we all share our founder Peter Suchy's love of music, commitment to quality and ongoing desire for perfection.
We've been setting new standards in the analogue reproduction of music for more than 30 years, and we fully intend to continue doing so. Today, you can find our products in more than 70 countries worldwide. The market for vinyl records is alive and growing and the Clearaudio family shares a common goal to refine, optimise and further develop our product range. Why? So that our customers can revel in the best possible musical experience. (And then we'll make it better!)
Clearaudio. Loving music.
