What sets the Master Innovation Wood apart from its competition is its state-of-the-art, no-contact drive system, derived from Clearaudio’s no-compromise flagship Statement turntable.

The lowest platter (the lower of two drive platters) is belt-driven by a low-noise, high-torque DC motor controlled by Clearaudio’s Optical Speed Control (OSC) technology, which is a microscopic reflective strobe and infrared sensor that ensures incredible speed accuracy.

The dynamically balanced main platter, a precision-machined sandwich of 70mm of high density polymer and 15mm of stainless steel, is connected to the upper drive platter by Clearaudio’s patented Ceramic Magnetic Bearing (CMB), so that the main platter and upper drive platter assembly floats on a magnetic field just above the lower drive platter with no point of load to wear or to generate friction and noise. The two drive platters contain a magnetic clutch so that the upper drive platter and the main platter are driven with no physical connection to the drive source. In addition to providing silent and frictionless drive, this system gives the Master Innovation Wood twice the flywheel mass of the renowned Clearaudio Innovation Wood turntable.

The combination of the no-contact magnetic drive, frictionless Ceramic Magnetic Bearing, and Optical Speed Control guarantee incredible pitch stability and freedom from noise, ultimately leading to unbelievably realistic musical reproduction.

The chassis features four layers of a complex sandwich of resonance-damping materials: aluminum and Panzerholz (bulletproof wood). The Master Innovation can accommodate up to three tonearms, allowing for complete flexibility of tonearm and phono cartridge.

Standard finishes are black aluminum with natural clear lacquered Panzerholz wood or silver aluminum with natural clear lacquered Panzerholz wood. Upgraded European piano black lacquered Panzerholz wood also available. For additional upgraded finish options, please inquire.

Olympus Stand
The optional Olympus stand is elegant and timeless in its appearance, and well constructed right down to the smallest detail. Only the best materials including solid aluminum and Panzerholz are used to achieve the highest possible quality. Each platform of the Olympus stand is further enhanced with aluminum surface plates providing a stable surface for your turntable, while spiked feet serve to decouple the Olympus stand so effectively that it remains unaffected by resonance.
