Clearaudio Master Innovation (Deck Only)

  • Regular price $36,995.00


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.

Deck only, no arm or cartridge supplied.
