    Stereophile Product Editors Editors


    The Clearaudio Concept is a winner. For many, it may be the turntable that gets them into this hobby. Others may find it all the turntable they'll ever need.

    - Erick Lichte, Stereophile, July 2012


    My first impressions were of a very smooth-sounding, quiet turntable-tonearm-cartridge assembly. Those ended up being my lasting impressions impressions as well.

    - Michael Fremer, Stereophile, June 2011


    Clearaudio's vision for the concept: design an elegantly styled turntable package featuring a level of groundbreaking technology usually only found in high-end turntables, combining plug-and-play simplicity with outstanding sound quality and affordability.


    Beneath the refined, contemporary exterior lies a level of technical sophistication unique to Clearaudio. The concept's chassis comprises a core of natural medium-density wood fibre within an aluminium surround and upper layer incorporating a high tech synthetic compound. This composite of materials eliminates the detrimental effects caused by unwanted vibrations.


    The DC motor is fed by an external voltage-stabilised power supply and is completely decoupled from the chassis, isolating the record from any mechanical interference. The concept tonearm features a magnetic bearing that is friction-free for extremely low distortion and superb performance. The package is completed with the high-quality Clearaudio CONCEPT MC CARTRIDGE. With the concept turntable package, Clearaudio offers you an extremely innovative design that is very affordable.


    The revolutionary concept combines the highest quality of music playback with a design that has won several awards worldwide - including the German Design Award and 'Best Turntable' award from 'What Hi-Fi? Sound and Vision' magazine. With the concept, to find an affordable entry point to the high-end world is a breeze. It reveals the magic of optimum sound reproduction even for those music lovers who could not previously afford this experience. You can buy the concept in a package with specially developed MOVING MAGNET (MM) or MOVING COIL (MC) cartridges. A frictionless magnetic bearing tonearm is responsible for the optimal performance of the cartridges. All critical parameters from cartridge tracking weight to anti-skating are preadjusted in our factory. The concept represents the ideal of stress-free 'plug and play': unpack, connect, put the record on the platter - and just enjoy music. There was never more audiophile technology in this class of turntables.

    Clearaudio Universal Tonearm


    Have a question about this product? Please email our audio advisor or call 1-877-929-8729 with any questions or concerns regarding your equipment purchase.


    The carefully hand-assembled Universal is Clearaudio's finest pivoted tonearm. Its vertical and horizontal ball bearing assembly is precision-machined to ultra-high tolerances. The Universal features a three-piece carbon fiber arm tube, reducing resonances to a vanishing degree and delivering excellent performance with a wide range of phono cartridges. Its aluminum one-piece headshell allows for accurate azimuth adjustment, reduces mass, and increases rigidity. Additionally, fine adjustments for anti-skate and vertical tracking force (VTF) offers accurate alignment of any phono cartridge type.


    The Universal comes with easily interchangeable counterweights, allowing it to work with nearly any cartridge manufactured today. Its internal wiring is Clearaudio's best Six Stream cable, as found on their Statement TT-1 tonearm. This assures superior signal integrity, and is ideal for all high-quality cartridges, including low-output moving coils. The Universal uses the Clearaudio/Linn standard mount, making it compatible with all Clearaudio turntables and an ideal replacement tonearm for other brand turntables. It is available in 9-inch and 12-inch versions.

    Clearaudio Ovation Turntable


    Have a question about this product? Please email our audio advisor or call 1-877-929-8729 with any questions or concerns regarding your equipment purchase.


    The design of the Ovation seems both timeless and minimalist - maximum music enjoyment needs no embellishment.


    Within a precision-machined chassis comprising a sandwich of aluminium and panzerholz bulletproof wood, 100,000 tiny metal balls eliminate any possibility of harmful resonances. Hidden under a 40mm-thick platter made of resonance damping POM is a very quiet decoupled DC motor with high torque.


    With Clearaudio's optical speed control (OSC) and ceramic magnetic bearing (CMB), the Ovation achieves supreme speed stability and redefines the standards in its class. Audio journal 'The Absolute Sound' recognised the Ovation's superior qualities and declared it 'Turntable of the Year'.
