New Ceramic Magnetic Bearing (CMB)
The new analog must have!
CMB (Ceramic-Magnetic-Bearing)
The Clearaudio CMB (Ceramic Magnetic Bearing) is a result of long-term research and development and is based on a Clearaudio patent. Two aligned opposing magnetic fields are perfectly aligned one on top of the other, thereby rejecting each other. The magnetic fields are completely shielded from the outside through the careful application of very sophisticated materials. A high precision ceramic vertical axle fits perfectly into a bronze bearing. This perfect fit is essential and can only be achieved through the highest precision hand polishing.
High-performance synthetic oil is used for lubrication. The combination of these carefully selected components produces the effect of the platter floating by itself on an air cushion, and not on a ball bearing or bearing point.
The results of this magnetic bearing are one of the lowest frictions in turntable bearing design and until now, un-reached rumble measurements, and an unbeatable new standard in speed accuracy.

The new Concept TT is here at UHA for demo!
$1500 with arm and cartridge!

The Clearaudio Performance's New Magnetic Bearing Isolates the Platter
The Performance Package is the newest offering from German analog masters, Clearaudio. This table/tonearm combination delivers terrific performance with stunning looks and excellent value. The base is constructed of two layers of synthetic marble sandwiched with aluminum inbetween. The motor is separate from the base to minimize hum or vibration interference. But the real magic of the Performance is in the bearing! Clearaudio’s new magnetic bearing allows the platter to literally float in the air, removing any friction or drag that can occur with traditional bearing designs. The Performance package also includes the superb Satisfy Carbon Fiber Tonearm. Available in black pearl (shown) or White Pearl pictured below.

The Absolute sound review of the Innovation TT
July 19th, 2010 -- by Jim Hannon
Source: The Absolute Sound
The Clearaudio Innovation Wood is a brilliant achievement and sets new price/performance standards in several areas.
Its pitch stability is stunning, and when mated to a first-rate arm like the Helius Omega Silver-Ruby
and the surprisingly good Benz Ebony H cartridge, its soundstaging approaches reference quality.
 I applaud Clearaudio for migrating so much innovative technology
from its Statement turntable down to more affordable products like the Innovation Wood.

Clearaudio Solution Series Turntables
Starting with
The GB Solution $3000

Revolutionary turntable designs why revolutionary?
1.) You can use 3 tonearms on all the turntables in this series even the least expensive unit!
2.) Because you can upgrade these turntables.
the next upgrade step would be:
The Master Solution
with CMB + Panzeholtz wood plynth $7500
Then you can upgrade to:
The Maximum Solution
With CMB + double Panzerholtz wood plynth's + 3 motors! $16,000
Don't throw anything away, just add on, and on, and on!
No hassles selling your old turntable to upgrade with Clearaudio, just add on!

What is CMB?
It's a new revolutionary bearing design that allows the platter to be levitated in a magnetic field.
This has numerous benefits:
1.) The ultimate in free platter rotation, friction is almost non existant.
2.) Noise from the platter rotating on a bearing point is virtually elimaneted.
3.) This unique design allows the platter to be acoustically isolated from sound waves generated by the speakers
4.) This design does not produce the loss of dynamics that some sprung turntables exhibit, it still sounds like the
normally fast detailed Clearaudio turntable. However there is a blacker background, less surface noise from the LP and
the presentation just sounds more realistic, more alive. I attribute this to the stylus tracking the record groove better
because when it produces a note there is less acoustic vibration from the speaker "inhibiting" that process.

The Solution turntable
is your entry into the world of multi-arm systems. It uses the same 30mm platter and three point star shaped plinth as the Master Reference. This design allows you to mount up to three different tonearms at once! The Solution retails for $4500 and many arm/table packages are available. Please contact us for more informtion on available packages. Once you have purchased a Solution, you have the ability to upgrade to either the Master Solution ($7500) or the Maximum Solution ($16,000)

 $30,000 plus arm and cartridge

The Clearaudio Master Reference wood AMG + CMB Turntable and Master TQ-1 arm $33,000

Master Reference below with UHA High Mass Feet


The Master Reference is a small miracle of mechanical science - and yet, it is more than that: to be a true masterpiece, it had to be designed and crafted with true devotion. Beyond beauty and precision engineering, it is something else: passion.
Three stand-alone motors, sychronized with the Accurate Power Generator, ensure extremely low wow and flutter figures. The resonance-minimizing form of the Master Reference ensures absolute mechanical quietness. The precision-turned silicon/acrylic platter rests on an inverted bearing made of bronze and hardened steel, guaranteeing a long and trouble-free life. The Master Reference accepts up to three tonearms at one time.

Especially for the Master Reference, Clearaudio has designed a new parallel-tracking tonearm, the Clearaudio Master TQ-I. It is a thorough development of the long-established Clearaudio/Souther TQ-I. Superb mechanical design and precise production provide the foundation for a cohesive, dynamic sound throughout the complete musical spectrum.
The Master Reference retails for $25,000 and comes with the industry leading 10 year warranty. Many arm/table packages are available. Please contact
United Home Audio your authorized Clearaudio Reference dealer for more informtion on available packages.
