1978 was the year of real breakthrough, the year Peter
Suchy and his team developed Clearaudio’s first moving coil
cartridges. The patented fully symmetrical design and the
choice of a boron cantilever were pioneering approaches
which guide others to this day – while Clearaudio continues
to refine them. ‘Made in Germany’ at Clearaudio stands for
the highest quality, using high-end materials and the perfect
technical implementation of intelligent innovation. Every
product in Clearaudio’s portfolio is conceived and produced by
highly skilled specialists and precision engineers in the science
city of Erlangen.
Since its inception, Clearaudio has amazed music lovers in
more than 80 countries worldwide with analogue playback
devices that set new standards of audio reproduction and
constantly raise the bar a little higher. The range now also
includes – in addition to high-end turntables, tonearms and

Statement TT1
They call it the pinnacle of analogue music reproduction: the
patented Statement TT1 tangential tonearm developed by
Clearaudio has been copied many times, but never matched.
As its name implies, the TT1 represents the ultimate statement
in tangential tonearm construction. This pinnacle of tangential
tonearm technology is a key yardstick for Clearaudio’s
development team. With the Statement TT1, records are
replayed as they were cut – in a straight movement with no
curves. Hence the cartridge’s stylus tracks the record groove
perfectly without errors. In addition, Clearaudio uses a unique
10
passive technology: a self-sufficient tonearm drive with a
purified mechanical design was created to combine optimal
resonance values with maximum freedom from interference
in the transmission of the music signal. In the TT series,
Clearaudio uses accurately crafted high quality materials
that are subject to ongoing quality control. Stability and
value come first. Uncompromising consistency and ongoing
innovation and development make Clearaudio a pacesetter in
tangential tonearm technology, always moving towards the

Turntable technology at its finest
T
he 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 bullet proof 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.

high torque DC motor. An infrared sensor sends signals to an
optical speed control mechanism to consistently maintain the
perfect speed, while non-contact magnetic decoupling of the
drive prevents any vibration or noise from the motor system
from reaching the main turntable. Consequently, speed
variations are eradicated and perfect pitch is obtained.
The Master Innovation provides the ability to mount up to
three tonearms. Existing Innovation owners have the option
to upgrade to Master Innovation level.

Tonearms
H
ere at Clearaudio, we have developed new and better
ways of satisfying the audiophile‘s needs. We offer an
unparalleled selection of the three main types of tonearms:
single point bearing radial, multi-point bearing radial and
tangential tonearms. Our range of tonearms features many
cutting-edge technologies, including several Clearaudio
patented designs. Even the radial tonearms deliver groundbreaking technology and include many patented systems
such as our magnetic bearings, as well as precision ball-race,
unipivot, gimbal, and hybrid bearings.
Our sophisticated tangential technology is the perfect solution
for those who really want to engage completely with the music
and experience a flawless rendering of all facets of sound. Each
LP master is tangentially cut in production by the record-cutting
lathe. Clearaudio tangential tonearms operate according to
our patented, purely mechanical passive process and follow
the exact same tracking path as the cutter head that made
the master. Replay tracking angles are thus identical and so
mis-tracking distortion is virtually eliminated.

Statement TT1 & TT1 MI tangential tonearms: one becomes two
They call it the pinnacle of tangential tonearm technology:
Clearaudio‘s patented Statement TT1 has been copied
many times, but never matched. Now this state-of-the-art
tonearm has been further enhanced and reengineered as two
distinct editions: the Statement TT1, designed specifically for
the Statement V2, and the TT1 MI, tailored for the Master
Innovation and Innovation turntables.
With the Statement TT1 and TT1 MI, records are replayed
exactly as they were cut – following a straight line across the
record. The cartridge‘s stylus is positioned at a perfect tangent
to the record groove, guaranteeing zero tracking error. No
skating force is generated at playback so no anti-skating
compensation is needed.
In both editions, Clearaudio use a unique passive technology:
the self-driven tonearm is mounted in a suspended carriage,
a purely mechanical design that combines optimal resonance
values with maximum freedom from interference in the
transmission of the music signal. The new Statement TT1 and
TT1 MI now also feature an enhanced arm carriage, designed
to further reduce friction. In addition, the suspension of the
carriage has been adapted to enable the use of more shallowbodied cartridges
Only the finest materials earn their place in the Statement
TT1 and TT1 MI. The resonance-optimised chassis is precision
machined from bullet proof wood and aluminium. It glides
backwards on stainless steel rails to allow record changing,
then slides effortlessly back into the playback position and is
held there with a magnetic locking system.
Uncompromising consistency and ongoing innovation make
Clearaudio a pacesetter in tangential tonearm technology,
always moving towards the perfect audiophile listening
experience.

one or two of the features of its bigger silblings, the TT2 and
TT3.
For example, the TT5 adopts a new, fully rigid design. However,
for those who like it convenient, Clearaudio have created the

optional TT5 swing base which, as its name suggests, allows
the entire arm assembly to be moved out of the way when

Cartridges close to the mystery of music
C
learaudio have been engaged in ongoing research into
moving coil technology since 1978. Compared with
moving magnet systems, moving coil cartridges have the
potential to extract even finer details from the record groove
and to respond to dynamic changes significantly faster. Since
the early days of our research, the improvement of sound
quality has been driven steadily forward by using new
materials and seeking new solutions to well known problems,
such as setting new standards in the parameters of dynamic
impedance, inductance and capacitance. Ingenious design
and extensive scientific experimentation have allowed us to
bridge the gap in performance between moving magnet and
moving coil cartridges. Our top-of-the-range moving magnet
cartridges incorporate many of the features of our moving coil
cartridges. The Clearaudio MC generation V2 represents the
state of the art for high-end MC cartridges.
Perfect symmetry for perfect sound reproduction: Clearaudio
moving coil cartridge technology.
Since founding Clearaudio in 1978 Peter Suchy and his team
have pioneered a series of novel ideas, subjecting every new
development to meticulous scientific examination and ruthless
testing. This tireless refusal to accept limitations and to
strive toward new solutions and higher fidelity have enabled
Clearaudio to reach peaks of innovation and technological
development and to occupy a leading market position.

Goldfinger Statement the ultimate dream
This cartridge deserves to play the best recordings of all time.
In order to ‘feed’ the moving coil (MC) Goldfinger Statement
with adequate music material, Clearaudio founded a music
production department specialised in audiophile recordings
of all genres. For the first time in a cartridge, the Goldfinger
Statement features twelve magnets, perfectly matched and
symmetrical enabling the system to reach a dynamic range
of 100 decibels. For the Clearaudio engineering team this
represents the fulfilment of an audiophile dream that seemed
long unattainable. The Goldfinger Statement is also the first
cartridge with integrated RF shielding.
The outstanding sound quality of this world-class cartridge is
the stunning result of meticulously detailed development and
fine-tuning of all of the important criteria. The breakthrough
came with the use of a 30 per cent thinner 24 carat gold wire
for the coils, a precision-milled gold mounting for the magnet
array and a body made of solid 14 carat gold – essential
core components for the ultimate cartridge masterpiece. The
world famous Gyger S diamond stylus provides the best detail
retrieval of all time. A flawless diamond on its facia beautifully
adorns the Goldfinger Statement.
Peter Suchy calls this miracle of a cartridge our ”magnum opus“.

essence mc the essence of music
Take the best and make it better”… sometimes the Clearaudio
motto proves to be quite a challenge. Especially when it calls for a
brand new cartridge design that will improve upon our entry-level
concept mc cartridge but without breaking a key price point! How
did we do it? By taking the ‘essence’ of the concept mc design and
applying even tighter controls to every element of its construction.
The boron cantilever, the micro-line stylus and of course the
Clearaudio patented moving coil generator have been subjected
to the most stringent scrutiny, thus ensuring superb dynamics,
fine resolution and channel matching of better than 0.5dB. The
electrical parameters are such that the essence mc will match with
almost any MC phonostage, guaranteeing superb results: natural
tonality, three-dimensional sound-staging, vivid dynamics and
captivating musicality. That’s the essence of our new MC!
concept mc reduce to the maximum

Clearaudio’s V2 MM technology uses ebony as a resonanceresistant body. Other ingredients of the recipe for success are
the most effective reduction of moving mass, an optimised
polishing technique for the stylus and highly effective cartridge
damping. This is precision engineering in the pursuit of the
best sound.
The Clearaudio V2 moving magnet cartridges are meticulously
measured, analysed, and hand-selected into four performance
levels. In this way Clearaudio achieves the best stereo channel
matching, minimum phase error and distortion, flattest
frequency response and highest dynamic range at each
Charisma V2
price point. The cartridges produce an audiophile sound of
superlative quality – spatially detailed and vividly textured, with
bass that does not wallow and treble that is not harsh. The
models of the Clearaudio MM V2 series provide outstanding
sound quality on all current tonearms.
With the exception of the concept V2, which is made of
aluminium, all the cartridges in this series are made with
housings of hand-polished ebony - the key to record-breaking
weight values with an average of 8.4g. This is what Clearaudio
calls ”effective reduction of moving mass“.

statement phono top class for top demands
The statement phono is at home at the absolute top – where
the air is thin, but the sound quality reaches its maximum
density. From the deepest bass to the highest treble, from
the additional bass octave of an imperial grand piano to the
piccolo flute of a full church organ and beyond, the statement
phono presents sounds exactly as they are. It takes nothing
away and does not add anything, but embodies the ideal of
pure music reproduction. Silver mica capacitors ensure that
the signals are handled without loss. Only the most noisefree resistors and capacitors, carefully selected, are worthy to
take their place on the circuit boards of this monumental 34
kilogram phonostage. This phonostage does not compromise.
But it does allow you to connect and control the volume of
all major sources via two phono inputs and two additional
analogue inputs.
For power, an external battery power supply is used, so that
interference from the mains electricity grid does not exist. The
statement phono embodies the ultimate truth of listening,
and with its switchable input resistors and freely adjustable
equalisation curves, addresses the needs of discerning
analogue fans that want to extract the best sound from their
records. This sound laboratory in miniature is unique and
unmatched in the analogue world.

absolute phono full power from the source
Clearaudio’s absolute phono is the world‘s first active headshell
moving coil phonostage.
A tiny circuit board installed in the headshell of the tonearm
amplifies the highly sensitive output signal from the cartridge
at its source. Now the delicate signal only has to travel a
few millimeters rather than along the usual 1-2 metres of
internal and external arm wiring before being amplified to
a more resilient level. This amplified signal then passes to
the specially designed main RIAA phonostage, along a signal
path free of the usual relays and coupling capacitors, which
again enables a more clean, pure and accurate sound. The
signal is then equalized and fed to both unbalanced RCA
and balanced XLR outputs, each with its own output driver
to ensure the utmost fidelity. The result? The signal to noise
ratio is improved by approximately ten decibels across the
entire audio spectrum. The absolute phono is built without
compromise, incorporating an anti-resonance sandwich
construction machined from solid blocks of aluminium and
bullet proof wood. The sophisticated power supply, located
in a separate chassis, keeps mains interference to a minimum.
Hand-selected state-of-the-art nonmagnetic Clearaudio silver
glimmer capacitors positioned at key areas of the circuit further
ensure excellent clarity and purity of sound. A single multifunction switch for ‘On’, ‘Off’ and ‘Mute’ modes ensures a
sleek finish.
The absolute phono is suitable for all Clearaudio tonearms
and is designed to work perfectly with any moving coil
cartridge from any manufacturer. This is ensured due to the
selected current amplification control which eliminates the
need to set the correct load resistance and load capacitance.
The optimum operating condition is always set automatically.

Direct Silver Wire
Silver is the ideal conductor, especially for the delicate signal
from a moving coil cartridge. In developing the Direct Silver
Wire, Clearaudio have achieved their goal of producing the
perfect tonearm wire. As the name suggests, the four signalcarrying conductors are made from pure silver, each with an
individually polished surface and Teflon insulation.
A second layer of Teflon protects against vibration-induced
distortion. A braided copper shield positioned at the optimal
distance around the central core protects against radio and
electromagnetic interference.
The silver conductors are incredibly fine, around half the
diameter of those in other arm cables. This gives the tonearm
absolute freedom of movement so it can respond to the tiniest
details and paint an incredibly realistic musical picture.
The final ingredient in the perfect tonearm cable is the
electrical impedance. Direct Silver Wire is optimized so that
Clearaudio moving coil cartridges, or any other moving coil
cartridges with similar electrical properties, are perfectly
matched to provide absolutely flawless transmission of the
complete musical signal from cartridge to phono stage.

the optimum cable for every need, from phono signals of small
amplitude up to the massive power supply that needs high
power connectors of the most sophisticated design.
Our know-how guarantees perfect insulation of the signal

Company
High specialised staff, the highest quality materials, skilful
workmanship, uncompromisingly accurate design and
ingenious production technology – all taking place in
Erlangen, centre of science and location of the world-famous
Friedrich-Alexander University. Our city shapes and influences
our aspirations and expertise.
In close proximity to the Fraunhofer and Max Planck Institutes,
our engineers and mechanics research future technology – for
ever greater acoustic quality.
Under the Clearaudio banner, highly trained perfectionists
with innovative imaginations help to make audiophile visions
come true.
88
To reach this aim, our technicians and engineers collaborate
with a wide range of experts – including precision engineers,
watchmakers, electronic engineers, physicists and industrial
designers. The finest materials are then intelligently combined
to produce impressive forms, parts and products that bear
the unmistakable signature of Clearaudio. To preserve this
signature for generations to come, we share our knowledge
with ambitious young trainees. As a leading training company,
we take social responsibility. With our headquarters in the
Meilwald nature reserve we are even pioneering ecological
sustainability.

You deserve the best: outstanding sound, flawless perfection.
To achieve this maximum in performance and durability,
Clearaudio invests a large amount of time. Analogue music
playback is a demanding and specialised area of craftsmanship
which requires considerable patience in order to achieve
maturity in development and production.
To maintain our commitment to quality, we produce
most of our precision components in-house. This requires
ongoing investment in production capabilities and provides
independence from third party manufacturers – fundamental
pillars of the Clearaudio philosophy, and the only way to
ensure consistency, clear documentation, enduring quality
and traceable results.
To reliably and precisely determine all measured data values,
our engineers and technicians rely on leading technologies
and methods. When standard measurements are insufficient
to meet our needs, our in-house engineers develop our own
measuring devices, working closely with external researchers
to meet the high demands of Clearaudio performance.
This philosophy is the basis for stunning innovation and
growing perfection.
Our collection of sophisticated measuring devices makes us
the top leader in the development of moving coil pickups that
define the world’s reference class.
Using these high level standards, one of the best phono
preamplifiers on the market was made – of course a Clearaudio
product. Your audiophile ears will be as convinced of the
results as our engineers and measuring devices.
High-end at the highest level.

To ensure the highest level of quality, we must be able to
monitor every step of the manufacturing process in real time.
This is why we rely on in-house craftsmanship. Only a tiny
proportion of our components are externally sourced – all
exclusively from certified and specialised suppliers, usually
found as locally as possible. All such component parts
must fulfil strict Clearaudio requirements. Each product line
undergoes a number of test steps. During the development
of materials, continuous performance tests ensure optimum
results. Clearaudio products leave our factory only after a
careful and protocolled module test. All of which means that
product faults are extremely rare, but even so we retain all
spare parts for up to 25 years after product launch – a unique
service appreciated by our customers.
In accordance with worldwide distribution requirements,
Clearaudio’s products meet all international guidelines such
as EMC, CE and UL. We combine passion with responsibility.
Although our products are globally unique and distinctive, they
adapt perfectly to the individual requirements of audiophile
music lovers all around the world.
Through this sophisticated strategy we fulfil our goal to
support the preservation of analogue music reproduction,
the importance of which has experienced renewed growth in
recent years. Worldwide enthusiasm for audiophile listening is
once again on the rise.
Clearaudio delights in this development and will continue to
drive it forward actively as a high-end audio pioneer.
