Clearaudio launches Professional Power 24V

Clearaudio has launched the Professional Power 24V, a standalone DC power supply designed to elevate the performance of turntables from the brand’s Innovation Series. In addition, it also supports the Clearaudio Ovation turntable and is positioned in the range between the standard SMPS unit with which all these models were initially launched and the premium battery-powered Smart Power 24V – which costs a more hefty £2,630.

The company says the Professional Power 24V is: “a high-quality linear PSU, based around a toroidal transformer, large electrolytic capacitors and all-discrete MOSFET voltage stabilisation to provide the essential steady 24 volt DC supply. The unit’s construction features professional-grade electronic components and a carefully mounted transformer within the compact cylindrical case, compliantly suspended to reduce mechanical noise output and inward microphonic effects.”

Clearaudio also claims that, due to an optimised circuit layout, including final passive filtering arranged after the physically oversized protection fuse: “the dynamic output impedance of the unit is kept very low for the best possible coupling to the turntable’s DC motor. The result is a much cleaner power supply that unleashes a subjectively more dynamic sound with further enhanced resolution.”

It weighs in at 1.1kg, measures 92 x 94 x 145mm (WxHxD), comes in a choice of black or silver finishes and existing owners of Clear Audio’s Ovation or Innovation turntables can add the Professional Power 24V as a drop-in upgrade.

Distributed in the UK by Sound Fowndations the Professional Power 24V is available to buy now for £740. You can find out more about it here.
