Innovation Compact Wood

The Innovation Compact Wood is based on the technology of the Innovation Wood (a TAS Golden Ear winner), but uses a single plinth without the stainless steel sub-platter. Its resonance-optimized chassis shape is based on proven clearaudio three-point design—a combination of Panzerholz (bulletproof wood), aluminum skins, and aluminum pods. It 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 exclusive to clearaudio and is equipped with electronic optical speed control (33 1/3 rpm, 45 rpm, 78 rpm)) controlled in real time via an infrared sensor. The high-density, dynamically balanced 2.75” POM platter provides excellent dimensional stability. Dual tonearm capable, as well.
