Technics Sp10MkIII NGS by Artisan Fidelity
Announcing the flagship Technics Sp10Mk3 NGS by Artisan Fidelity, this model represents a no holds barred direct drive platform utilizing the fundamental drive architecture of the legendary professional studio system originally conceived and developed by Technics Matsushita Japan in the early nineteen eighties. This final design effort was in essence the companies crown jewel professional studio direct drive model and represented the culmination of engineering knowledge gathered through many years of Sp10 manufacturing and evolution. The daunting task required for a company to develop, test and produce a direct drive possessing a similar level of comprehensive engineering in today's marketplace would be in a word, stratospheric and cost prohibitive. Fortunately, through extended listening trials in conjunction with modern engineering techniques, our talented design team was able to further cultivate and subsequently engineer a state of the art turntable model using this legendary and highly sought after direct drive motor system solely as a blueprint. The evolution of Artisan Fidelity's continuing and ongoing designs using optimized conventional and direct coupled based turntable models based on the Technics Sp10Mk3 drive platform over past years has lead us to this final NGS iteration, a no expenses spared flagship design, engineered and crafted from the ground up with absolutely zero compromise. Indeed, the playback capabilities of the Technics Sp10 Mk3 NGS platform easily exceed and surpass both conventional plinth type designs and direct coupled designs. Beginning at the top, the original heavy rubber platter mat has been replaced with a bespoke high purity Copper platter mat precision cnc milled to fit the stock main platter like a glove. The NGS model's playback characteristics include a drastically lower noise floor, superior channel separation, enhanced clarity and focus / image specificity along with unrivaled transparency. While listening, clients quickly point out the energy, life, timbre and breath typically only heard by first generation 1/4" and 1/2" 15 ips open reel tape recordings which they are now experiencing for the first time during LP playback on their Technics Sp10Mk3 NGS models. The experience is transformative and literally like nothing we have heard thus far with any direct drive based front end. Residing within the plinth cavity is a Technics Sp10Mk3 motor mounted using a proprietary austenitic steel precision motor coupling system, which ensures intimate physical contact to the massive multilayer composite foundation and core. The fundamental plinth's architecture and infrastructure entails proprietary modeling techniques which were developed using both in room listening tests and material resonance contour software analysis. The core infrastructure consists of a mass loaded composite foundation consisting of layered German Panzerholz and synthetic Copolymers pressure sealed and mechanically coupled into an exoskeleton hull comprised of aged, heat treated aircraft grade aluminum alloy. What this unique plinth design architecture achieves is a dead silent, stable, inert base which exhibits no unusual or erratic in room resonance characteristics during playback which directly contributes to its transparent, lively and musical demeanor. Aiding to further reduce any residual DC motor vibration we have employed a proprietary Quiet Core active bearing drain module featuring integrated Stillpoints isolation technology. Stillpoints Ultra 5 isolation devices are included as standard equipment, which during listening tests proved superior to purely passive component footers. To operate the Technics Sp10Mk3 NGS, the user may opt for speed selection and Start/Stop functionality through the outboard aluminum interface module connected by a shielded umbilical cable or directly at the primary power supply chassis controller selector buttons.

More precisely : the platter of the SP10 MK3 weighs as much as the entire MK2 drive. The SP-10MK3 is mechanically based on Technics' SP-02M cutting lathe.Starting torque of this new ultra-low speed brushless DC motor allows a 16kg/cm spec - twice as much as that of the 1975 SP-10MK2 and... sixteen times as much as the original 1969 SP-10 !This means a full speed ahead in 30° of a full rotation or 0,25s.The inertia moment of the 10kg platter is of 1,1 ton/cm2...

TTW Audio KING OF ALL PLATTERS Momentus 100lb PURE COPP...
MOMENTUS CU9999PLEASE CLICK FOR MORE INFORMATION TAKE ADVANTAGE OF OUR .78 CENT DOLLAR AND SAVE $5,000.00 NOW.Audiogon ReviewI recently upgraded my turntable from the TTW's Momentus V1 to the new Momentus V2 Copper platter rim drive turntable. The Momentus V2 Copper is TTW's newest flagship table. If I could use one word to describe the turntable...SPECTACULAR ! The table is a vision of beauty and amazing sound. The big leap in performance of course is the copper platter. 88 pounds of pure copper. It takes 5 days to machine the platter alone. That's right 5 days. They put a big chunk of copper into the 5 axis CNC machine and after almost 5 days of constant machining the copper platter is born. The platter is then treated with a coating to keep the copper looking like brand new for years to come. The next big improvement is the new controller for the motor drive. Another great looking piece with some very sophisticated hardware and software installed, to control the speed of the heavy platter. Assemble of the table is very easy but you do need help installing the platter. It took 3 people to install the platter. Two people to lift it into position and myself to guide the platter into the custom machined bearing. Very precision fit. Let me tell you something, this is world class machining at its finest. The rest of the assembly went very well and setting up the tonearm with the adjustable pod made things very easy. Set the motor into position per the instructions and we are ready to go. First thing that needed to be done was set the speed to 33.33. I have a laser and a disc that I use. Once the desired speed was attained, it was locked in and did not move. We stared at the LED read out on the laser for 10 minutes with NO deviation in speed. Did the same thing for 45 rpm with the same results. Like I said earlier, the new motor controller is a pretty high tech piece. It sends 24,000 pulses for every rotation of the platter to control the platter speed. No one in the industry has anything close to this. Hopefully you are starting to see that this turntable is pretty amazing. Next thing I did was to test how quiet the rim drive system was. I know many members here have negative opinions about this rim drive without owning one or even hearing one, so let me post my test of this rim drive system. I have a test record with a track that is specifically designed to measure motor noise and vibration through the platter. I started to play the track, gradually turned up the volume until I reached full volume and DEAD SILENCE - NOTHING ! I have a Bryston 14B SST amp and at 600 watts a channel, you would never be able to listen to music at that level. So lets put that noise rumor to rest, there is none. Now for the moment of truth. Let's play some records. First up is the Beatles Abby Road. This has been one of my reference recording that I use to judge stereo equipment for years. The first thing that jumps out is the bass. I have never heard bass this deep and clean, ever. It will vibrate your body but with absolutely no distortion. Words will not do this bass reproduction justice, it is something you have to hear. Very very impressive. Next is the soundstage. The sound is so focused and detailed. The soundstage is wide and each instrument, singer, background vocals and percussions have their own unique place. You can focus in on any one of them and actually hear everything that they play, note by note with stunning clarity. The sound is not all blended together. The air around each instrument is just haunting. You actually feel like the musicians are playing in your listening room. The level of music reproduction is amazing. You will hear details in your favorite albums that you never knew existed. The level of detail that this table extracts from vinyl is just mind blowing. I listened to many other of my favorite records with the same results. Man it is like hearing these recordings for the first time. The new Momentus V2 Copper is an attention getter. It looks fantastic, has rock steady speed, perfect pitch and is dead quiet. This is by no means an entry level turntable but you get a very big band for your buck. This table will compete strongly with the $100.000 tables that are out on the market. All I can say is, with the TTW's Momentus V2 Copper Turntable, you don't listen to music, you experience it !

Michael Fremer quote: "I will say for the record and on this video, this is so far the best sound I have heard at the show." 2015 AXPONA Chicago Sunday late afternoon enjoying music playing in the Artisan Fidelity room. http://www.analogplanet.com/content/artisan-fidelity-turntables-drew-me-sound-made-me-stayArtisan Fidelity Garrard 301 Schedule 1 Grease Bearing and standard series African Wenge single Panzerholz tonearm configured plinth finished in high gloss clear coat (Please note: Reed tonearm not included). The comprehensively restored Garrard 301 Schedule 1 Grease Bearing model turntable shown above in the photographs is also included with the plinth along with matching Panzerholz armboard as shown and Stillpoints Ultra SS isolation devices. To the best of our knowledge, no higher quality Garrard 301 wood based plinth currently exists on the market, period. The conventional Russian Birch based core internal design architecture ensures silent backgrounds and ample dampening for mass loading and direct coupling of the non-suspended Garrard 301 idler drive. The displayed configuration is ready to accommodate a single, nine to twelve inch effective length tonearm. Tonearm board milled from resonant damped German Panzerholz. Like our Statement models, although the void-less plinth design is technically high mass, it is not in any way over damped, unlike many recent designs which often inhibit liveliness in favor of darkness and deadness, robbing the Garrard 301 of its inherent life, vibrancy and energy. Our conventional composite Russian Birch recipe simply allows the maximum energy of the musical landscape to flow without hindrance. Our hand selected team consists of 3rd generation master woodworkers combined with a state of the art machining and finishing facility. Our Garrard 301 plinth designs were carefully tuned by ear and finely developed over a period of 4 years for the ultimate musical expression and tonal characteristics.

Garrard 301 Statement King of Idler Drives
Dagogo Review Quotes by Jack Roberts - "Alive, Energetic, Dynamic" "Bowed strings are a big test for any system. With the Statement my system played bowed strings with the sweetness and air of real life.""Is the Artisan Fidelity even in the same league with tables like a Shindo, AMG, Clearaudio and other world class turntables? The answer is simple, yes indeed. It matches or surpasses any of these tables in build quality, beauty and most of all the way it plays music.""Plucked strings like guitars, basses and harps sounded very natural and full. On these instruments, the Statement allowed me to first hear the leading edge that sounded fast, quick, and dynamic. After that I could hear the decay and air inside and around the instrument. This table allowed my system to reproduce both acoustical and electric bass instruments with incredible impact as well as a fundamental rightness."Garrard 301 Statement by Artisan Fidelity featuring the world’s first modular inverted precision bearing and platter based architecture. Ikeda IT-407 transcription tone arm and Ikeda 9TT moving coil phono cartridge package included. Individually hand crafted and precision machined to order. Please email email@example.com or call 219.933.8115 for current lead times. Designed strictly for the ultimate analog playback capability derived from the renowned English engineered classic idler drive platform. A fundamental approach in lowering center of gravity, achieving increased resolution in addition to drastic reductions in noise and friction is achievable through an inverted type bearing and platter design. Modern echelon level analog playback front ends routinely feature such bearing topologies for these reasons. Additionally, the flywheel affect has been improved, as a result speed consistency throughout solidifies. Although our previous conventional Garrard 301 Statement bearing design was a radical departure and subsequent drastic improvement from stock offerings, the inverted bearing and modular platter design takes the resolution, noise floor and channel separation to a whole other level. Each set of inverted bearing and modular platters are cnc milled using solely state of the art milling machines, designed in collaboration with tribology and hydrodynamics consultants from Purdue University Department of Engineering.Garrard 301 Statement CNC milling demonstration link - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JT8j3h8MN4cBy employing a modular platter architecture, the user may contour the playback characteristics of the Garrard 301 Statement to a degree as each upper material selection will allow for a slightly different presentation. Material selections available: Copper alloy, Magnesium, 7075 Aluminum, Inox Stainless Steel. Please consult me directly for an explanation of unique playback differences between the various alloy selections.Using solely the fundamental mechanical design architecture and re engineering a classic transcription turntable like the Garrard 301 requires extraordinary skill, dedication, painstaking attention to details and a level of passion few will ever realize. Our level of commitment is unsurpassed in the area of transforming classic analog playback instruments which have easily stood the test of time into analog record playback devices for the modern era designed to perform at a reference level, in any arena. A small, highly skilled and dedicated team of mechanical engineers, master woodworkers, designers, finishers, visionaries and artisans are who we are, producing the worlds finest modern classics, hand crafted, individually tuned by ear and precision engineered to last a lifetime. The word masterpiece truly defines the quality and musicality of our reference Garrard plinth, which is a feast for both the eyes and the ears. After over a year in the Garrard 301 plinth prototyping phases, we arrived at the place we are today which once not far in the past, was only several hand drawn sketches, a concept and a dream. Our small, highly skilled team of third generation master woodworkers, precision machinists and my own individual creative design concepts made the dream possible and the results, well, the results are nothing short of magnificent.Garrard 301 Statement by Artisan Fidelity Featuring the World’s First Inverted Modular Bearing and Platter based Architecture Individually hand and precision machined analog playback masterpieces Designed with passion, engineered with precisionChristopher ThorntonArtisan Fidelityinfo@artisanfidelity.comwww.artisanfidelity.com219.933.8115 Actual Garrard 301 Statement Testimonial: "Hi All,So had analog nutcase friend over for 4 hours Sunday to sort out what’s going on with that Artisan Fidelity Garrard 301 with 12" Ikeda was sounding so much better than Origin Live Sovereign with 9" Enterprise arm. Both have Ortofon Anna cartridges. We mounted the Enterprise on AF Garrard to see how it would compare to Ikeda using same phono cable and again, Anna. No comparison, the Ikeda setup killed it. We figured no way could be that much difference in tonearms. So, swapped Anna’s and.... suddenly Enterprise sounded every bit, err groovy, as Ikeda and Ikeda went ’south’. Hmmm, turns out one Anna was way off in sound and is going back to Ortofon. Note: we had done a quick cartridge comparison about two months ago and both Anna’s were in same league then, though we didn’t do near as precise comparisons as yesterday. So, ok found out the arms are practically interchangeable sonically (more time would no doubt reveal differences but on whole near enough) - bigger difference between Ikeda tonearm cable and Valhalla 2 than the arms actually. Go figure. So, how about the tables then? Put Enterprise arm back on Sovereign table with good Anna and.... far better than it was of course but still not the drive, dynamics or body of Garrard. We did numerous swap around’s, remember we spent over 4 hours on all this. Bottom line: Sovereign is wonderful at 40% the price of Garrard and superb but have to give it to the Statement Garrard, it does what the hype is about. Note; Ikeda alignment is flawed. They first state 295 spindle to pivot now, after I drilled armboard they say use 299 and in order to use Baerwald (I can’t spell but you know what I mean) I had to twist cartridge in headshell which doesn’t look great. But we did get Ikeda aligned correctly using 295. Fit and finish of Ikeda is impeccable amazing Japanese and well beyond Origin Live and it has detachable headshell. It also is lacking alignment jig and no wonder; the company can’t supply one as they can’t decide how to align it. Also, it’s stainless steel and effective mass is near 25 grams so while Anna is fine in it, forget Lyra’s and many other cartridges. Origin, while not near finish is still superb looking and much more versatile cartridge wise plus no doubt in 12" version for $500 extra would have gained a little in performance. Enterprise’s modern look doesn’t match Classic look of Garrard though and Ikeda looks positively amazing on it. But for most tables, I’d take OL which is terrific looking on any modern table. Outcome: it’s an easy choice for Garrard Statement regardless of arm and what I’ll be listening to daily." Jay, California

Please call me directly 219.933.8115 or email info@firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.Thank you. Sincerely,Christopher ThorntonArtisan Fidelity email@example.com Quoted from Dr. Feickert's website: The idea … based on our previous experience with Woodpecker and Blackbird Turntables we have refined our applied concepts. The ability to handle two 12 inch tonearms was one of the principle design parameters along with simplifying the turntable setup and alignment procedures. We also focused on the visual perspective as well with evolutionary refinements in our form factor, fit and finish and presence. From a tonal standpoint the Firebird represents the pinnacle of the DFA product line, it is truly our new reference turntable. The mission … was not to simply modify the electronics used from the Woodpecker and Blackbird – that would have been to simple, no, instead we started from scratch with all new electronics. We developed a much more sophisticated type of hardware and completely rewrote our software, taking multi-motor-turntable operation to a never before seen level. Not to worry though, this new technology will also be integrated into our current Woodpecker and Blackbird tables, thus elevating their performance as well.Running on three motors we chose the only geometrical configuration that really makes sense – the equilateral triangle. As we have already shown with the Blackbird, the positive effects of reduced drag force on the bearing is bettered by the triangle configuration as it also stabilizes the bearing/platter assembly by cancelling out all acting forces. All tendencies of gyration are effectively eliminated. Combined with our all new bearing with 80% reduced area of contact - which will also be fitted to the Woodpecker and Blackbird models - we achieve much lower friction causing less rumble and improving the wow & flutter even more … The result … timeless elegance paired with perfect measurements. Ease of use at a new level that improves upon the experience from our smaller models. Easier to set up as we also designed new feet that allow a much wider range of leveling capability along with improved sonics. In addition we have also implemented and improved our well known built-in Protractor TT for setting up tonearms and cartridges. An all new and more refined armboard-design that makes assembly even easier than before with enhanced accuracy. You‘ll be amazed at how simple it is to achieve the best performance. The sound … pitch black background paired with pure dynamics, both macro and micro. Power and stability meets neutrality. Whatever your choice of tonearm/cartridge is – the Firebird will reveal the most you can get out of it opening new horizons for your listening pleasure. You will be completely confident that nothing is being held back. Sit back, relax, leave all discussions about the technical aspects behind you and just enjoy the music …Get involved – more and more … Technical data belt-drive turntable, 3 motors, 2 tonearmsquick-release system for tonearms/armboardsintegrated Protractor for cartridge/tonearm alignmentdimensions: 560 mm x 460 mm x 160 mmright arm-slot: 205 - 345 mm pivot-spindle (9 - 14 inch eff. length)left arm-slot (optional): 205 - 300 mm pivot-spindle (9 - 12 inch eff. length)weight: 23 kg (chassis), 29 kg (w/o tonearm)warranty: 2 years (chassis and electronics), 5 years (bearing)

Ebony Record Clamp Compare to Shun Mook Stunning improv...
African Ebony LP clamp. ( Style Shun Mook ). Ebony is a very dense wood used in making musical instruments and selected for tonal qualities. Clarinet, Oboe, Violin, Guitar to name a few. Limited quantities available. Very hard to get Ebony big enough to make these beautiful record clamps. Similar to Shun Mook Clamp but better clamp mechanism and looks. Looks really good and increases the WOW factor on your turntable. When clamped to the center post of a turntable something magical happens. The vibration generated by the diamond stylus in the vinyl groove besides inducing an electroflux through the phono-cartridge also excites the ebony molecules, causing it to resonate. This in turn is feed back through the stylus and is reproduced as expanded sound staging, enhanced separation, sharpened focus and enriched tonal balance of the music. Ebony LP clamps are natural Ebony wood only, with a brass collet clamping system "Totally NON-Magnetic" through and through.. 4 record clamps sold to date. Every customer has been thrilled and highly satisfied. Absolutely NO coloring or stain of any kind on Ebony... Read the blogs and past Audiogon discussions on Shun Mook. Shun Mook sells for $2,800.00 or more if you can even get one. I listened quite a bit to my turntables using different high end cartridges while using this clamp. Ebony LP Clamp added warmth, richness, micro dynamics, better low end separation. Weight is 12.3 ounces which is light enough not to damage your bearing, belt or drive motor. Payment accepted Cashiers Check or PayPal please add 3.5% to cover fees. - Beautiful custom made Walnut & Myrtlewood storage / display box included at asking price. I will consider reasonable offers if you don't want the box.Check feedback on Audiogon and U.S. Audio Mart to see what past customers had to say about this Ebony LP Clamp.This is a copy and paste from my last customersSound is more dynamic, immediate, powerful, etc, just as I remembered the Shun Mook clamp I tried several years ago, I've no doubt that I will get you more orders when my friends get to hear it. The finish is superb, I actually think your version is better the the SM version. I took a chance ordering this clamp from Mike, and the gamble paid off in spades. I've always wanted a Shun Mook clamp having heard one a couple of years ago, but price in the UK was $4000. So I ordered one from Mike, having looked at the pictures, the clamp looked the part. I had already fitted an Ebony arm base for my Schroder reference and I was quite surprised how it improved the sound. The clamp arrived quickly and I have to say the construction of Mikes clamp in my opinion exceeds that of the Shun Mook. Sound wise it was in improvement right away, however after experimenting with the clamp using with and without a record mat, I also experimented with different drive belts using Kevlar, rubber, silk and polyester thread, I got a vinyl presentation that I could not have achieved without it in place. Music times so well, bass goes deeper and tighter, soundstage is more alive and three dimensional. I'm so glad I took the gamble, Mike was an excellent communicator throughout the transaction and it could not have gone smoother, I am absolutely delighted. If your in the market for a clamp like this, don't hesitate you won't regret it.

Garrard 301 Precision Eddy Brake Disc Woodsong Audio Ex...
"Hi Chris, I installed the brake and pulley and like it very much. I would like to purchase another brake and pulley. Can I do this directly through Woodsong? I am using a beta version of Bill Carlin’s Phoenix Engineering Eagle controller (25W version) together with his tach. The controller dramatically reduces motor noise. The controller allows one to run the Garrard 301 without the brake. This makes one realize how much noise the original brake contributes. Unfortunately, without the brake the Garrard sound loses some of its midrange weight. With your brake and pulley I can run some braking without the excessive noise. You have done an excellent job on these components. My two 301’s and Lenco PTP5 are mounted in large slate plinths that I have worked on over several years. The turntables and tonearms are separated by 6 layers of 2” thick slate, with all layers separated by “mechanical diodes” or decoupling elements. I started with one 2” layer and took a “blind chicken approach - peck away till I find a seed”. Best Regards, Duane " * * Another manufacturer just started selling aftermarket eddy brakes made from 6061-T651, which is an alloy which gives much less braking action than the original eddy brake. Woodsong Eddy brakes give exactly the same amount of braking action as the original. This replacement Eddy Brake disc works exactly as the original, but with considerably less vibration than the original eddy brake disc. Lower vibration equals a reduced noise floor. This upgrade will lower vibration from your drive system, and will noticeably lower the noise floor. Typical installed run out in concentricity of the Woodsong Garrard eddy brake is less than 0.0001". Typical run out in concentricity of the original Garrard eddy brake discs is up to 0.015", and run out in the brass hub on the original eddy discs, I have seen up to 0.020". That much out of round increases vibration significantly. The Woodsong eddy brake disc is a huge improvement. In addition, almost all of the original eddy discs have been bent somewhere over the years, and are not flat. This is another source of vibration. Replacing your old eddy brake disc with this new disc is straightforward with basic mechanical skills. It can be done in about 10 minutes without removing the deck from the plinth. Lift the platter off of your Garrard, and spin the motor shaft with your fingers. Notice that the stock eddy brake disc is not a precision piece at all. This eddy brake disc is a huge improvement over the stock eddy brake. As a re-builder of these decks for the past 9 years, more than half of the decks that come through my shop have had bent or damaged Eddy Brake discs. In addition, the eddy brake as it came from the factory, when new, was never a precision item. The original is a brass hub which is pressed into a metal disc like a rivet. On many 301 eddy brakes, it is easy to see the out of precision, lack of concentricity of the original brass hub. Beyond even this, the hub of the original has a sloppy fit with the motor shaft. The original eddy brake disc is like having an eccentric cam on your motor shaft, increasing motor vibration, not ideal. The Eddy brake disc is mounted on the motor shaft, and,in combination with a magnetic bracket which is actuated by a knob on the deck controls, gives some adjustment to the running speed of the deck. This is the result of six months of research, prototyping, and testing, and it is a superb upgrade piece! The center of the disc is reinforced, and more than twice as thick as the original disc where it meets the mounting hub so it is less likely to be damaged in the future, though proper care should always be taken when moving or shipping a Garrard to prevent damage to the eddy brake disc. The fit of the hub is precision honed to the motor shaft, for a smooth and precision fit. The Woodsong Audio 301 Eddy Brake Disc is a drop-in replacement for your existing eddy brake disc. It functions exactly as the original disc, with the same range of speed control. The disc is a slip fit onto the motor shaft, and secures with 4 socket head set screws, and the matching hex key is included with purchase. Shipping is included in the cost, withing the US. International shipping is $20, anywhere in the world.

LINN LP12 5 YR OLD CURRENT SPEC BLACK PLINTH-AKITO MKII...
Beautiful Black Plinth LP12… Recent production from 2010. Table is equipped with a current Linn Akito MkIII tonearm, the latest version of the Trampolin II All Aluminum base board, Bran new Mose/Hercules 2 speed Power supply/motor controller.The MkIII name for the Akito seems to be a Linn forum name but specifically refers to the latest machined version of the arm. Officially an Akito 2b this arm is easy to identify. The newest version has a machined from solid bearing block and yoke assembly that houses the vertical bearings instead of the previous cast version. This is very easy to see if you examine the surface of the bearing block that faces the front of arm tube. If you view the same area on an older Akito MkI or MkII you will see the flashing (leftover from the cast mold) that are in the midpoint of the bearing block; that is half way between the top and the bottom of the surface that faces the headshell of the armtube. Examine the solid bearing block and yoke in the pictures of the Akito with this table and you do not see the tell-tall flash from a cheaper less precise cast arm. The bearings and the ball races of the MkIII Akito have also been greatly upgraded. The combination of the machined parts and the much higher spec bearings and bearing races really sets this arm apart from the older Linn Akito’s and head and shoulders above old worn out Ittoks. Linn even used the same method of attaching the headshell to the armtube like they did with the Ekos tonearms; they are bonded to the tube. The Akito 2b MkIII is machined and built entirely in Scotland. Not in Japan..... Some of the Linn pundits on the forums compare the performance of the latest Akito as equal to the Ekos I and approaching the Ekos II . The power supply is the well regarded Mose/Hercules outboard motor controller that provides both 33 and 45 speeds. . The base board is the latest All Aluminium Trampolin II that has the cutouts to facilitate the extra wiring needed with the inboard Linn phono stage. This latest version of the Trampolin also has a ground lug on the inside of the baseboard to further ground the turntable system. The Black Plinth is the latest spec corner braced plinth with the new style metal angle braces also installed. The plinth shows excellent with a small handling mark or two. Cirkus bearing is included as standard on this late model LP12. The supplied lid is clean and shows no cracks. It was sourced from a different LP12 and does show the typical signs of use with cleaning swirls and small marks and scratches. The cost of the above TT if you went to a Linn dealer and sourced a similar spec TT would be $6,615 I researched the prices from one of the larger Linn USA dealers(published online) and found the following: Black plinth chassis: $3,200 Akito 2B MKIII : 2,400 2,400 Lid and Hinges : 275 Trampolin II (latest): 340 Mose/Hercules: 400 The total = $6,615 for a new Linn LP12. I have priced this excellent condition 5 year LP12 at just south of 44% of new retail. Compare that to what others are asking for a 25 yr old LP12 with a 25 yr old Ittok tonearm and 25 yr old Valhalla power supply and ask yourself is this is a good way to start or upgrade your LP12 vinyl affair??? Have used the Audiogon scale of 7/8 due to the used condition of the dust cover. If you have any questions please email and I will respond. Buyer pays PayPal fees and ground insured FedEx fees

Woodsong Audio Thorens TD124 TD 124 Old Growth Indian ...
This fantastic plinth is finished in Old Growth Indian Rosewood. This Rosewood Board board was found in the stash of a deceased guitar maker. It is nearly impossible to find Quartersawn Indian Rosewood like this anymore. Think 'old Martin Guitar'... It is gorgeous. Almost all Indian Rosewood available today is plantation grown in Indonesia. That stuff is still nice, it is the same species, but the colors and grain are just not quite like the 'real deal'. The plinth in the photos is not the actual plinth for sale, but identical. One armboard is included in the price, cut for your choice of 9" tonearm. Armboard is made from Basswood, with a thin Constrained Layer of German Panzerholz. Armboard top is also finished in Indian Rosewood. The listed price of $2800 includes 4 Track Audio footers (not shown) The Stillpoints Ultra SS footers are an additional $400. Please contact me to determine which footers are best for your particular listening room/ rack. New mounting studs, and associated mounting hardware are included with this plinth. Installation is straightforward, and the fit is precision. Woodsong Audio has been building top quality plinths for the past 9 years. We have tested many different materials, and different combinations of materials, culminating in what we know to be the very best plinths available today. Woodsong Audio is the ONLY plinth maker using 1.8 -2.0mm thick veneers for plinths with rounded corners. We cut this, 'in house', from special boards which are hand selected for beautiful grain, and long lasting quality. All the others are using thin commercially supplied veneers for the sides. It is easy to tell the difference just by looking. There is a HUGE difference in quality. If you are in the market for a new plinth, it would be wise to find out how to tell the difference, and why the commercially supplied veneer used by other makers is vastly inferior. . We are the ONLY plinth maker using a vacuum press for the plinth core. This is the only way to ensure zero voids between the bonded layers of substrate, and keep the amount of adhesives separating the layers to an absolute minimum. Hand operated clamping attempts, screws, etc, do not even come close. For the most part, adhesives including epoxy act as damping, and inhibit energy transfer between layers in a CLD plinth. Vacuum pressing helps to achieve a coherent, true to material substrate with the absolute minimum amount of adhesive ,which means a better sounding plinth. Yes, this makes a difference. Worldwide shipping is available. Please contact me for a shipping quote. If you are in need of a plinth for your Thorens TD124, look no further. Please contact me for other finish options. Thank you.

Audio Desk Vinyl Cleaning Machine - most effective and ...
Audio Desk Vinyl Cleaner - The First Ultrasonic Record Cleaning MachineAudio Desk Systeme's Vinyl Cleaner is the first and only LP cleaning machine that incorporates an ultrasonic cleaning cycle in addition to a more conventional mechanical cleaning via bi-directional rotating microfiber cleaning drums, and the result is the cleanest LP's ever. And it is fully automatic - just put the LP in the slot, push the button, and come back in 5 minutes for a thoroughly cleaned and dried LP (both sides). Whole new layers of inner detail and air are revealed in the recordings, and of course most surface noise is eliminated.Comes with 2 vials of a proprietary cleaning fluid developed specifically for this machine. A container of the fluid concentrate plus 4 liters of distilled water (just over a gallon) cleans 200 new LP's, or 100 used LP's.Technical: How can sound clean?Ultrasonic is sound generated above the human audible level.A physical effect called "cavitation" results from the generation of ultrasonic frequencies in a liquid. In this cavitation process ultrasonic "compression waves" are created by an ultrasonic transducer. When the amplitude of this soundwave increases to a level where the surface tension of the liquid is broken, the fluid will "tear" apart leaving behind millions of microscopic vacuum bubbles. These vacuum bubbles then rapidly compress or implode creating millions of tiny liquid jets small enough to clean inside the smallest grooves of an LP. This process, also called "microagitation," displaces any contaminants on the surface of the LP.Stereophile Product of the Year - The Absolute Sound Product of the Year - Editor's Choice Awards for 2013 - The Absolute Sound Golden Ear Award for 2014! Art Dudley, Stereophile March 2015"...If there exists a more effective, easy, reliable, and utterly transformative way of cleaning LPs, I have yet to hear it..." Check out the entire reviewMichael Fremer, Stereophile"...the Audio Desk Systeme was the most effective, easy-to-use record-cleaning machine I've ever tried. I've never had so much fun cleaning LPs. I bought the review sample!"Jacob Heilbrunn, The Absolute Sound, 2014 Golden Ear Award"...the Audio Desk Systeme record cleaning machine is a revelation.; Not just for its ease of use, but for the improvements it renders to vinyl playback. It will leave about any LP looking pristine. It is a well-nigh indispensable accessory for any record lover!"Jeff Dorgay, Tone Audio"...I can assure you that before-and-after comparisons are simply no contest. After trying pretty much everything else, nothing gets my records as clean as this machine does - it redefines analog quiet!"Jacob Heilbrunn, The Absolute Sound"...this is a miraculous product that produces results equivalent to a cartridge upgrade...if you have a high-end system and oodles of LPs, this record cleaning machine is not an option. It is a must!"A quick word regarding the cleaning fluid: In order to treat the vinyl as gently as possible, and create the best possible sound, the cleaning fluid, specifically developed for the Vinyl Cleaner, avoids the use of alcohol, instead relying on a mild biodegradable mixture with excellent cleaning properties and outstanding anti-static characteristics. Just one container of cleaning fluid concentrate (2 are included with the machine) is enough to clean approximately 100-200 discs (depending on the level of disc contamination). The wet filter is easy to clean: saturate with distilled water and ring out. The inspection interval for the wet filter is identical to the replacement of the cleaning fluid. The 4 microfiber-cleaning barrels are extremely robust and therefore only need to be replaced after approximately 500 completed cleaning cycles.Order today:web: www.highend-electronics.comAs a business we have to collect 8% TAX from buyers in California.

Once you set your audio equipment on top of it, it will compress the magnetic field and become completely stable, unmoving and isolated from acoustic vibrations. No assembly or adjustments needed, just set your equipment on it and hear the amazing sonic improvement that comes from one of the best audio isolation platforms available at any price.In order to maintain perfect alignment in the vertical position for optimized magnetic levitation force two highly polished steel rods are used one on the left side and one on the right. Each rod runs thru both the top and the bottom plate of the top shelf and each extends downward out of the way. A specialized smooth bearing design is employed (which each of the rods run through) to minimize any surface contact and provide a very smooth vertical movement. Much of our design work was spent optimizing this minimal contact area so that almost no sound transmission thru the bearing assembly was possible. This is how we are able to provide maximum lift (up to 50lbs) with virtually zero vibration transmission to top shelf of the platform.Ideal audio isolation and sound improvement for the following components:• pre-amps, • phono pre-amps,• turntables, • cd/dvd/blu ray players or transports, • DAC's, • iPod docks,• media servers • tuners.• amplifiers weighing under 50 pounds. WHY MAGNETIC LEVITATION?Vibration elimination is well recognized to improve the sound of almost any component and the Anti-Gravity Magnetic Levitation Component Platform accomplishes this task by floating components on air, the ultimate vibration insulation material. Far superior to cones, pucks, rubber, wood, metals or other insulators ... air provides zero transmission of acoustic energy into your device.By utilizing the latest advancements in ultra high-power magnetic technology we have created a platform that suspends equipment in the air supported by the powerful opposing forces of magnetism. Magnetic fields have been found to have no interference with the components on the stands. Several ultra-expensive $100,000.00 turntables use magnetic levitation for their platters which are physically very close to ultra-sensitive phono cartridges ... all without any negative effects. The Anti-Gravity Platform is an effective equipment isolation device that elevates your musical enjoyment by dramatically reducing negative acoustic vibrations while also visually accenting your audio equipment to increase its aesthetic appeal. Instead of just putting your cherished audio equipment "on the rack" ... magnetically levitate it in space for a dramatically unrestricted sound with the Anti-Gravity Platform from HigherFi Audio ( see more information about this product at moonaudio.com )SPECIFICATIONS: Finish: Clear acrylic pair of opposing shelves Weight capacity: Approx 50lbs per shelf Size: 18 inches wide by 14 inches deep Feet: 4 Adjustable height metal audio isolation cones Retail Price: $1995.00TERMS: We accept all forms of credit cards and Paypal - NO FEES, we provide shipping in the USA ($49) or worldwide ($199) , MagLev is in stock and available for immediate shipping.

This massive turntable weights impressively at 200 pounds. It comes with a hefty solid T6 with 48mm thick and solid aluminum platter that will control all the vibration and provide better resonance. It also comes with non inverted steel ball bearing that supports heavy platter and still provides smoothness and quietness. Sound, what you get from this turntable is a very musical sound, explosive dynamics and deepest black background that you have ever heard. With the jet-black background, this turntable will produce all the inner details with subtle micro and macro dynamics that will enable to you to hear tight and articulate bass while projecting a holographic image with light and airy sound-stage. Platter: The Platter has an embedded which is made out of very special aluminum material and is much bigger comparing to other regular platters in the market. The thick 48mm Platter is implemented with new technology which produces great results. The platter comes with fly wheel technology that controls balance and vibration from the platter. Bearing:The 48mm stained steel, bearing is made out of hard and shaft stained steel with large ground radius which runs on a thrust washer. This is a special material with a very low coefficient of friction and very high wear resistance, giving a long maintenance free life. Motor: The heavy aluminum motor comes with new AC Motor inside to drive heavy platter. The inertia of this motor combined with new design that makes it quietly runs and supports heavy platter to deliver speed at 33 and 45 rpm. Triangle Art Crystal Digital Controller Isolated Power Motor Drive, designed for all turntables, uses an 115v AC motor to precisely control the speed and stabilizes the electrical power that the turntable receives.

A long time ago, in a country far, far away, Japan in Oct. 1982, I was at the All Japan Audio Fair held at the Harumi Auditorium in Tokyo and was expecting to see lots of new turntable goodies. Much to my surprise, this was the world debut of the dreaded Compact Disc!!! Sony & others had conspired to bring about the untimely death of the analog turntable!!! The best sounding CD player at the show was the NEC 801, and it was a P**e of C**p !!! It did not sound anything like the mid priced analog set in the next booth! Now I must admit, that CD has improved somewhat in the almost 30 years since then, but not very much!!! This brings me to the subject of this review, The Triangle Arts Signature turntable. I got the review sample from its maker, Tom Vu of KT Audio Imports in Anaheim, CA. He is also the USA importer/distributor of GaMut & LA Audio. I wont go in to all of the design and construction details of the table, you can read all of that on Toms web site. It was very easy to set up and use with separate tone arm towers/mounts and a separate motor drive. On to the performance/sound of this heavy unit. I used the latest version of the Triplaner arm with my Highphonic MC-D15 low output cartridge, a VERY HEAVILY MODIFIED E.A.R. 864 tube preamp, Canary Audio CA-301 mk.2 tube power amp & Isophon Casiano speakers. In a word, Excellent!!! This table digs down half way to China to capture/reproduce bass you never thought your system could deliver My pants were flopping in the breeze!!! This bass is very tight and well controlled and images quite well. It does not interfere with any other part of the sonic spectrum. The upper lows/lower mids are also revealed in all of their glory. This is a GREAT table!!! The mids and highs are very smooooth and image front to back & left to right like nobodys business. If the record will permit, there is also quite good top to bottom image. Trumpets, violins and other up high instruments were on top, acoustic guitars and pianos were in the middle and cello and string bass were down low. This table ROCKS!!! I listened to many types of music and the table never failed to satisfy. I never was plagued with listening fatigue like I always am with CD! I did not have a second table on hand to compare the T.A.S. too, so I cant give any thoughts on that subject. It is a well rounded turntable and I can find no wrong with it! I bought the review sample!!!!! On one of the popular web sites, the reviewer of the Reference table, (the other table Tom makes) states that you, Must use this table with a clamp. That is the biggest bunch of baloney I have ever heard!!!!! The two tables are no different in sound/performance and I NEVER felt the need to use a clamp. THIS TURNTABLE IS A OK AS IS!!!!! Go to Toms web site for price and specs. This is a superb table and very highly recommended!!! Yours in good listening,Ken Kuegeman Long Beach Audio Society

J.C. Verdier La Platine Verdier Granito
Original, very rare Granito version of J.C. Verdier La Platine Turntable. It has Granito plinth, made of granite particles, mixed with epoxy. Verdier had stopped making Granito plinths long time ago due to the very high cost of manufacture, and since then, they are made from MDF. Plinth is coated with hand- made high grade shellac for extra protection from humidity, etc. It is in excellent condition, with no blemishes of any kind. This table has undergone numerous modifications: Callas Audio motor bushings to minimize vibrations Motor control unit is converted to DC with battery power supply (easily convertible back to AC) Motor cover is custom powder coated in beautiful red high- gloss metallic finish and the black metal parts are coated with hand- made high grade shellac for extra protection. Compact Marine battery Battery charger Neuron Technology Limited DC-DC Step Up/ Down converter- it allows for very stable 12 VDC output to feed the motor, therefore facilitating speed stability) Original fine speed adjustments on the motor remain functioning Custom Copper Arm Pod Custom Gabon Ebony Arm board (drilled for custom- mount Graham Phantom II Supreme tonearm) New upgraded suspension springs to accommodate heavier arm pod Original aluminum Arm pod and aluminum arm board Upgraded Arm pod mounting hardware. Two spare bottles of original Verdier spindle oil (I purchased directly from Verdier in France). Optional ball bearing, should you wish to use it on the spindle ( Verdier himself didn't recommend it). Original magnets are very strong. It is absolutely plug-and-play and sounds outstanding. I doubt you can find another original Granito La Platine in this condition and all the mods very easily. Turntable spindle is in perfect condition ( due to magnetically suspended platter, it's not a subject to any friction). The price is for the turntable only, and includes all of the above listed accessories. tonearm and cartridge are NOT included. I will list Lyra Kleos for sale in a separate listing. It has probably under 40 hrs, purchased knew from an authorized dealer less, than a year ago. For interested party i would consider selling as a package ( Turntable, 10" Graham Phantom II Supreme tonearm and Lyra Kleos cartridge). This combination is highly recommended and is VERY hard to beat. It will be very well packed for shipment, but local pick- up in Philadelphia area is encouraged. buyer pays actual shipping cost. PayPal, please add 3%. Other payment options to be discussed with potential buyer.
