Despite its relatively modest price, the Acoustic Solid Machine offers a level of performance that we believe more expensive models from our competitors will struggle to match. This is due to our refusal to compromise on key areas including the use of our own high-precision “zero tolerance” bearing. In addition, it uses a heavy 60mm thick aluminium platter that acts a powerful flywheel to ensure smooth, cogging-free rotation. The use of a separately located motor provides an extremely efficient means of preventing residual motor vibration from reaching the platter and disturbing the stylus. The combination of natural leather and acrylic sheet for the platter mat has been carefully chosen to provide effective damping of any vibration within the record. The Acoustic Solid Machine can accommodate up to three tone arms, which should satisfy even the most demanding audiophile.
The Acoustic Solid Machine provides stereo images that are palpable in their reality. The bass is convincing in its extension and timing and this comes together with the other parts of the frequency range to produce an analogue playback that has a feeling of smoothly flowing, just like real music. Listening to a turntable of this quality, it is easy to see why analogue playback is gaining in popularity.
