CLEARAUDIO OVATION TURNTABLE
Within a precision-machined chassis comprising a sandwich of aluminium and panzerholz bulletproof wood, 100,000 tiny metal balls eliminate any possibility of harmful resonances. Hidden under a 40mm-thick platter made of resonancedamping POM is a very quiet decoupled DC motor with high torque.
TURNTABLE OF THE YEAR
With Clearaudio’s optical speed control (OSC) and ceramic magnetic bearing (CMB), the Ovation achieves supreme speed stability and redefines the standards in its class. Audio journal ‘The Absolute Sound’ recognised the Ovation’s superior qualities and declared it ‘Turntable of the Year’.
