The perfectionists of Clearaudio

In 1978, German engineer Peter Suchy developed the first Clearaudio moving coil cartridges. The patented fully symmetrical design and the choice of a boron cantilever were pioneering. To this day, the design continues to guide others while the Clearaudio team of highly skilled specialists and precision engineers continues to refine the technology.

Clearaudio has become well-known worldwide for a range of high-end turntables and accessories made of both innovative technologies and handcrafted elements. All components are made with a purpose to create an ultimate and unforgettable listening experience in the living room of the customer. The unique design of the cartridges is one of the main differences between Clearaudio and other high-end turntable producers. Instead of conventional magnets they use the smallest and strongest magnets combined with ultra-small and lightweight gold coils. This brings out the finest sound details and responds quickly to dynamic change.

The Statement v2 signature model

The Statement v2 turntable is based on a deep love for music. Clearaudio has designed this exceptional turntable to break the rules and boundaries of music reproduction from vinyl records. The model is beautifully designed and engineered with innovative patented Clearaudio technology. Nothing is added, coloured, distorted or lost and even the most minute musical details are faithfully reproduced. The model has no air main bearing – instead, Clearaudio has decided to float the platter with magnetism.

Clearaudio has received great reviews for the Statement v2 and also won awards for their innovative design. If the price is out of your budget, they also offer compact models like the Innovation Basic which is a smaller sibling but still has design and quality that Clearaudio stands for.
