Features

Product specifications

Perfectly matched materials meet patented Clearaudio technology. The 70mm-thick platter of the Innovation Compact consists of dynamically balanced polyoxymethylene (POM) and is powered by a high-torque DC motor with precision bearings, developed exclusively for Clearaudio.

The optimally designed chassis keeps resonances out of the audible range and guarantees maximum stability in a housing made of a massive panzerholz (bulletproof wood) and aluminium sandwich. Timeless design with quality built to last for decades. The option to mount a second tonearm makes it possible to play a rich variety of music from across the decades.

What the papers say

The Clearaudio Innovation Compact is a highly capable high end turntable with some very fine qualities; it's stable, delicate and musical, with a lovely midband. Marry the matching Magnify tonearm to it and this becomes truly magical [...] I'd recommend you listen and see if it's for you.
