Acutus turntable is radically different from current design theories. Designed from a clean sheet, leaving nothing unexplored or unresolved. Setting a standard of musical reproduction others aspire to achieve. In brief, this is a belt drive, sprung subchassis design and this is where similarity with other designs stops. On first appearance you can see there is something different and you would be right.

Vibration caused by the stylus during playback is transmitted to the subchassis directly through our newly revised unique single point bearing and not absorbed into the platter. This is achieved using a unique matting material and clamping system. External vibrations are isolated by a unique variable frequency suspension system, conveniently adjustable from above.

A purpose designed power supply, incorporating our latest DSP signal generation makes for accurate speed settings. This coupled to a unique hand made motor, 10 times more powerful than normally used, drives a massive 10Kg platter with our new twin belt drive system making for excellent speed stability and sonic pictures of sound.

Stunningly finished in Polished Chrome, this product is the natural choice of equipment for those who demand the best
