SERIES: Clearaudio Innovation Basic
TYPE: Turntable

An innovative entry
The Innovation Basic provides the main technical characteristics of our Innovation, in a reduced “Basic” design that rivals it’s larger siblings.



Perfectly matched materials meet patented Clearaudio technology. The 38mm-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.

The optimally designed chassis keeps resonances out of the audible range and guarantees maximum stability in a housing made of a massive panzerholz (bulletproof wood) and aluminum sandwich. Timeless design with quality built to last for decades. The option to mount a second tonearm makes it possible to play a rich variety of music from across the decades.
