Clearaudio Announces Limited Edition Reference Jubilee Turntable

Celebrating 40 years of Clearaudio, the Erlangen, Germany based company has unveiled its Reference Jubilee turntable.

After first appearing in 2018 at various shows, its reference turntable is now officially coming to market. The compact triangular form weighs in at over 20kgs and shares the shape of the very first turntable produced by Clearaudio.

The plinth is manufactured from 40mm Panzerholz like the company's Statement turntable and covered at the top and bottom with thick aluminium plates. The platter is 70mm and a combination of stainless steel and polyoxymethylene (POM).

The platter rotates on a specially redesigned, patented CMB ceramic magnetic bearing, and is belt-driven with a flat belt. Drive comes from a 24 V DC non-magnetic motor controlled by a digital system based on a 12-bit DAC. The rotation speed of the 8.5 kg platter is measured by an optical sensor and corrected every 3 seconds. Push buttons allow a choice of speed between 33.3, 45, and 78 RPM.

Clearaudio refers to its Reference Jubilee as “the best of Clearaudio's past, present, and future, ushering in a new era of analogue precision.”

A choice of tonearms and cartridges are available, but the Reference Jubilee will be available for €16,500 RRP, without either.
