Clearaudio


Clearaudio is a German company formed in 1978 by Peter Suchy. It specialises in manufacturing of high-end hi-fi components and its main focus is in analogue audio products such as phono preamplifiers, phono cartridges and turntables.

In its 30 years’ history of producing high-quality analogue products, the company has mastered the art of making turntables that are easy to use and have an exceptional sound, which in turn has led to the company receiving several audio awards for their products. Their most recent product, the ‘Concept’, for instance, is a hugely popular and award-winning model mainly due to its modern minimalist design, excellent sound performance and solid engineering.

The success of Clearaudio can be associated with Peter Suchy himself, who can be characterised not as a follower of trends, but rather a creator who sets new standards for the company. You can notice this when you look at the level of innovation and quality of each of the Clearaudio’s products, from their smallest connectors to their most sophisticated turntables.

The vast and ever-growing range of Clearaudio products has been strategically established. Ever since 1978, Clearaudio has offered a range of products required for analogue music reproduction, then in the same year, Clearaudio became the first company in the world to use boron cantilevers for their phono cartridges.

For Clearaudio, innovation takes several forms: development of new processes; ongoing technological invention and the intelligent use of materials. New standards are being set for each of their newly-released products and it is the main reason behind their success.

Quality means excellence of craftsmanship, design, materials and the engineering process. To ensure the quality of Clearaudio products is not compromised, they are all hand-assembled in Erlangen, Germany, with the vast majority of parts manufactured in-house. For the outsourced parts, the company partners with a small selection of certified suppliers, mostly also located in Germany, in order to ensure efficiency and high standards of quality. Clearaudio has a highly-specialised team of designers, precision mechanics and audio engineers. All these factors lead to the company’s ability to reproduce a high level of quality in all its products.
