The design of the Clearaudio Ovation appears as timeless as minimalist – maximum music enjoyment needs no embellishment. The precision-machined chassis includes 100,000 metal balls so harmful sounds and resonances stand no chance. Hidden under a 40mm-thick platter made from resonance damping POM is a particularly quiet but effective de-coupled DC motor with high torque.
Due to the Clearaudio Optical Speed Control (OSC) and the ceramic magnetic bearing (CMB), the Ovation achieved synchronization values with minimal tolerances and redefines the standard in its class. This allows audiophile listening to a whole new dimension. The trade journal ‘The Absolute Sound’ chose the Ovation given its superior qualities as their ‘Record Player Of The Year’.
The goal of high-end analogue is to perfectly merge technology, workmanship and design and subordinate them to one single target: the best possible music reproduction. At Clearaudio, all development, design and production remain firmly in the hands of a perfectly experienced and attuned team of specialists who never lose sight of that goal, and who uphold the Clearaudio philosophy and high quality standards.
From the tiniest part to the full audiophile ‘Gesamtkunstwerk’ (a complete work of art that draws on many art forms), at Clearaudio everything is meticulously made by hand – with maximum precision and plenty of passion. Precision-crafted mechanics and the use of components fine-tuned for density, mass and shape guarantee mechanical harmony and the absence of resonance when playing records.
The ingredients are high-density multi-layered wood, titanium, stainless steel V2A, aluminium and specially developed high-performance plastics. Two parameters are of critical importance: maximum performance of music playback and technically effective design, as well as the aesthetic beauty of our creations.
