Clearaudio Innovation Compact Wood

The Clearaudio Innovation Wood is a brilliant achievement and sets new price/performance standards in several areas. Its pitch stability is stunning... I applaud Clearaudio for migrating so much innovative technology from its Statement turntable down to more affordable products like the Innovation Wood.
— JIM HANNON, THE ABSOLUTE SOUND, JULY 2010

 

The Innovation Compact Wood is based on the technology of the Clearaudio  Innovation Wood turntable, but uses a single plinth as opposed to the stainless steel sub-platter found on the Innovation Wood. Its resonance-optimized chassis shape is based on the proven success of Clearaudio’s three-point design — a combination of Panzerholz, aluminum layers, and aluminum pods. The Innovation Compact Wood uses Clearaudio’s patented CMB (Ceramic Magnetic Bearing) technology, where the platter magnetically levitates on an inverted bearing attached to a low-friction ceramic shaft. The high-torque DC motor is equipped with electronic OSC (Optical Speed Control). The high-density, dynamically balanced 2.75″ polyoxymethylene (POM) platter provides excellent dimensional tability.

The Innovation Compact Wood is dual tonearm capable and comes with the Clearaudio Universal 9" tonearm.

Black or silver plinth with wood trim is standard. The piano black plinth with Panzerholz piano black trim is a $500 up-charge and is a special order item.
