You’ll need at least one mate to help, and more tools than are provided in the box, but the Master Reference isn’t as intimidating to put together as it looks. Like all bespoke machinery, it needs love and attention – which will be rewarded.

When we say the Clearaudio disappears, we’re being complimentary. The sound it makes is so natural that there doesn’t seem to be any mechanical aspect to the sound at all – it’ll take you closer to the recording than any other player.
