The Innovation Compact Wood’s resonance-optimized chassis shape is based on the proven success of Clearaudio’s three-point design — a combination of Panzerholz, aluminum layers, and aluminum pods. The Innovation Compact Wood 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 equipped with electronic OSC (Optical Speed Control). The high-density, dynamically balanced 2.75″ polyoxymethylene (POM) platter provides excellent dimensional stability. A clear acrylic platter is available by special order. The Innovation Basic Wood also features a second tonearm mount.
The Innovation Compact Wood is available in Black/Natural, Silver/Natural, or upgraded Piano Black Lacquer.
The Tracer Tonearm is a pivoted tonearm with adjustable VTA, azimuth, and anti-skate. Tracer also features a mechanical bearing, precision VTF adjuster, and 1M DirectWire cable.
The carefully hand-assembled Universal is Clearaudio’s finest pivoted tonearm. Its vertical and horizontal ball bearing assembly is precision-machined to ultra-high tolerances. The Universal features a three-piece carbon fiber arm tube, reducing resonances to a vanishing degree and delivering excellent performance with a wide range of phono cartridges. Its aluminum one-piece headshell allows for accurate azimuth adjustment, reduces mass, and increases rigidity. Additionally, fine adjustments for anti-skate and vertical tracking force (VTF) offers accurate alignment of any phono cartridge type.
The Universal comes with easily interchangeable counterweights, allowing it to work with nearly any cartridge manufactured today. Its internal wiring is Clearaudio’s best Six Stream cable, as found on their Statement TT-1 tonearm. This assures superior signal integrity, and is ideal for all high-quality cartridges, including low-output moving coils. The Universal uses the Clearaudio/Linn standard mount, making it compatible with all Clearaudio turntables and an ideal replacement tonearm for other brand turntables. Available in 9-inch and 12-inch versions.
