High-End Turntables.


Made in Germany.

Clearaudio’s wide and ever-growing range of products is an evolution of quality. Right from the start, back in 1978, Clearaudio decided to offer a complete range of products needed for excellent analog music reproduction. Within the first year, they were the first company in the world to use boron cantilevers for their phono cartridges! Clearaudio hasn’t stopped innovating since.



Concept Turntable

The concept achieves these highest of requirements, realising the Clearaudio vision. Beneath the sleek, contemporary exterior is a level of technical sophistication unique to Clearaudio. The concept‘s body is carefully crafted from medium-density wood fibre (or, optionally, pressure-formed solid wood) with a selection of smart made-to-match surface finishes. The body’s upper layer incorporates a special high-tech satined plastic compound designed to minimise unwanted resonance.

Performance DC Turntable

The Performance DC is a complete package designed to open up the high-end listening experience to those ambitious music lovers who are willing to handle with the basic features of tonearm and cartridge adjustment, and who simply seek the best in music reproduction. An enhanced version of the Performance DC with wood chassis offers even greater resonance control.

Ovation Turntable

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 resonancedamping POM is a very quiet decoupled DC motor with high torque.

Innovation Compact Turntable

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.
