Product specifications

The 70mm-thick, dynamically balanced platter made of resonance damping plastic with a 15mm-thick precision-machined stainless steel sub platter delivers the highest mechanical standards. The Master Innovation doubles the inertia of the Innovation.

Incredible rotational speed stability is achieved thanks to the combination of the patented Clearaudio ceramic magnetic bearing (CMB) supplemented by an additional flywheel and a high torque DC motor. An infrared sensor sends signals to an optical speed control mechanism to consistently maintain the perfect speed, while non-contact magnetic decoupling of the drive prevents any vibration or noise from the motor system from reaching the main turntable. Consequently, speed variations are eradicated and perfect pitch is obtained. The Master Innovation provides the ability to mount up to three tonearms. Existing Innovation owners have the option to upgrade to Master Innovation level.

What the papers say

With this device, you can explore the lower octave levels in all their detail. It almost felt, as if the record grooves were as big as the Mariana Trench and the listener could dive with a special submarine into its deepest nooks and recesses in order to illuminate everything perfectly with its spotlights.

Stefan Schickedanz

A spectacular and impressive turntable, especially when mounted on the matching Olymp stand, the Master Innovation visibly justifies its rather grand title.
