Clearaudio Ovation Turntable

Beautiful Design, Powerful Sound, and Easy to Use

Unites the Technology of the Innovation with the Concept's Ease of Use

Clearaudio's newest turntable is one of the most gorgeous designs ever built by the famed German analog perfectionists. The Ovation not only looks stunning, it sounds staggering. In addition, it’s simple to set up and play. When you get this table home and play your first LP, you’ll know why everyone is so excited. A 1.5-inch Delrin platter sits on a plinth made from a composite of aluminum and wood laminate that looks as great as it is effective at controlling vibration. A DC motor locks in perfect speed control, giving the Ovation an indescribable naturalness. It all just sounds “right.” The new carbon-fiber Clarify tonearm is based on a frictionless bearing, allowing the sound of your cartridge to completely define the ‘table’s sonic signature. No matter your musical tastes, the Ovation is the ideal platform for playing your LPs.

"Based on my many enjoyable listening sessions excellence is precisely what you should expect from the Ovation. I view the Ovation as a major success. Clearaudio has easily met its goal of bridging the gap between high-end sound and real-world convenience. This easy to set up, maintain, and operate package will bring its owners years of musical satisfaction. And that counts for us audiophiles as well as 'normal' people."
– Wayne Garcia, The Absolute Sound

The Clearaudio Ovation is available in either silver or black with a wood base. Both finishes are also available with a piano black lacquer by special order only.

"Right from the first few notes played by the Clearaudio Ovation, I knew I was working with a machine that loved making music. Everything I played had terrific body to the tone, and a harmonic cohesiveness from bass to treble that gave music a very natural and organic feel. Each instrument and voice sat unambiguously in the soundstage with a largeness and roundness at its edges - the opposite of an analytic and etched sound. Yet there was very good resolution."
– Erick Lichte, Stereophile
