    MY TAKE: Sleek, sexy and oh-so-good sounding ‘table from Germany, the Clearaudio Innovation Compact wood with Magnify tonearm may be one of the best values in the line. – Galen Carol

    The Innovation Compact Wood Table -

    The Innovation Compact Wood is based on the technology of the Clearaudio Innovation Wood turntable, but uses a single plinth as opposed to the stainless steel sub-platter found on the Innovation Wood. Its 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. The Innovation Compact Wood is dual tonearm capable.

    The Magnify Tonearm -

    Its hybrid bearing on high-precision balls and magnets make the Magnify tonearm something special. This innovative design not only ensures interference-free and resonance optimized playback, it also noticeably simplifies set-up and adjustment. The headshell and azimuth can be easily fine-tuned and with the optional VTA-Lifter it is possible to adjust the VTA even during playback.

    This tonearm defines the standards – not least because it is compatible with many cartridges. It is equipped with high quality Clearaudio Direct Wire in a continuous run from the cartridge connectors to the tonearm cable plugs. A tonearm that stands for ultimate sound clarity.

    REVIEWS:

    Hi-Fi World: “The Clearaudio Innovation Compact [Wood] is a highly capable high-end turntable with some very fine qualities; it’s stable, delicate and musical, with a lovely midband. Marry the matching [Clearaudio] Magnify tonearm to it and this becomes truly magical… I’d recommend you listen and see if it’s for you.”
