“…the Clearaudio Ovation is a serious turntable. It is resolving, musical, and beautifully built. Clearaudio’s innovative use of materials and well-executed design make it a joy to use, to see, and to hear. Highly recommended.” – Erick Lichte, Stereophile, October 2012

The Ovation incorporates high-performance technology from the Clearaudio Innovation Wood series of turntables, but in a more affordable “lifestyle” design and echoing the award-winning ergonomics of the Clearaudio Concept turntable.

Similar to the Clearaudio Innovation Wood Compact, Innovation Wood, and Master Innovation Wood, the Ovation’s main chassis consists of a complex sandwich of materials: aluminum and bulletproof wood (Panzerholz). Within the precision-machined Panzerholz layer, Clearaudio has introduced an elaborate resonance-damping implementation unique to the Ovation turntable: an internal mat comprised of approximately 100,000 tiny stainless steel pellets.

The powerful and smooth DC motor is equipped with Clearaudio’s OSC (Optical Speed Control) technology, which continuously monitors a micro-infrared strobe to ensure exact speed stability. The motor drives a precision-machined aluminum sub-platter and 40mm POM (polyoxymethylene) platter, both of which are supported by Clearaudio’s patented CMB (Ceramic Magnetic Bearing).

With its interchangeable armboard technology, Ovation can accommodate a variety of 9-inch tonearms including the Clearaudio Satisfy, Tracer, TT5, and Universal tonearms. Available in Silver/Wood, Black/Wood, and upgraded Piano Black Lacquer finishes.
