clearaudio Innovation Wood

An Absolute Sound Golden Ear Award winner, the clearaudio Innovation Wood features a resonance-optimized dual tier chassis based upon proven clearaudio three-point design - a combination of Panzerholz (bulletproof wood), aluminum skins, and aluminum pods. Its high-density, dynamically balanced 2.75” POM platter is mated to a half inch thick, CNC-machined stainless steel sub-platter and clearaudio’s patented CMB (ceramic magnetic bearing) technology, where the platter magnetically levitates on an inverted bearing attached to a low-friction ceramic shaft. A high-torque DC motor exclusive to clearaudio is equipped with an OSC (optical speed control) circuit controlled in real time via an infrared sensor. The end result is a highly musical, detailed presentation with very accurate pitch and exceptional rhythm and pace. The Innovation Wood is also dual tonearm capable and plays 33 1/3 rpm, 45 rpm and 78 rpm speeds.
