A few words about what the industry has to say about Acoustic Signature Turntables:


STEREOPHILE: "The Final Tool is the smoothest running and/or best isolated conventional motor I've ever encountered at any price!." "..the Final Tool with it's solid construction, superb bearing, sophisticated electronic motor drive, provision for multiple tonearms, and a heavy, oversized, well damped platter might be the the best value out there" "..nothing at this price point compares in terms of built quality ."(Michael Fremer Stereophile Sept/2001)

Stereotimes: ..and is strong contender not only in its price range, but also compared to far more expensive tables. Combining the bass power and soundstaging capacities of popular "high-end audiophile" tables with the dancing and singing rhythmic abilities of the "musicophile" UK tables, the Final Tool will appeal to those who want it all.

Stereoplay/Germany: Acoustic-Signature Mambo! "Everything is perfect on this turntable"

Hi-Fi & Records: The Mambo is convincing from the first note;.. It was completely solid, was perfect structured. The dynamics of the bass was the best I've ever heard.

Stereoplay/Germany: At the first view the Acoustic-Signature Challenger looks like " an ultra solid high-end turntable". This stands also for the sound not only the look. The Challenger offers an ultra deep fundament that's clearly focus, extraordinary sound, excellent craftsmanship, a real Stereoplay Highlight.

Hi-Fi & Records: A turntable like nothing before. Mechanical engineering at it's best. Sound quality of the Analog ONE MKIII is free of any mistakes with a very fast and dynamic bass and rhythm. Voices, timing, rhythm, everything perfect.

VPI ACCESSORIES & REFERENCE TURNTABLES

 

     The VPI SDS (Synchronous Drive System) shown on the photo above combines a turntable motor speed controller and a line isolator into one convenient 16" x 3" x 12" (W x H x D) package. The SDS breaks new ground in clean accurate power delivery using advanced digital technology and quartz crystal accuracy.

The SDS allows for the adjustment of both the voltage and frequency fed to the turntable motor. Adjustments are easily made from the front panel using intuitive, soft touch controls. The selected output voltage and frequency are shown using large, easy to read LED displays. The SDS slowly ramps the voltage and frequency up or down to the selected value in order to prevent premature motor wear due to abrupt changes. During motor startup, the SDS increases its output voltage in order to bring the platter up to speed quickly. Once the desired platter speed has been reached, the SDS ramps the output voltage down in order to reduce motor vibration and, therefore, the systems noise floor.

The circuit used in the SDS provides an incredibly accurate line frequency of great stability. Additionally, the electronic circuitry effectively isolates the output voltage from the input voltage, doing away with voltage spikes, low level fluctuations, RFI, and frequency variations. Instead of merely filtering the power line, the SDS first changes it into pure DC voltage and then digitally regenerates its own clean signal. This approach is superior to that used in many of the other power line conditioners on the market. The SDS works best with synchronous motor driven 115 volt turntables, such as those from VPI. The speed of a synchronous motor is determined by the frequency it is fed. It is only logical then, that a device whose speed is based on the line frequency will always function better when a stable frequency is delivered. A constant motor speed translates into a quieter, more faithful musical presentation.

The 25 pounds VPI Single Motor Flywheel shown on the photo above consist of a a motor/flywheel combination. This fits into the round cutout on the left side where the motor normally goes and gives the sound of the HR-X to any turntable. A machined housing, 300 RPM motor, 10 pound flywheel spinning at 400 RPM is included. Here is a link to VPI's full line up: VPI TURNTABLES.

KUZMA STOGI REFERENCE TONEARM

The STOGI REF is one of the best reference tonearms we have heard and tested, it provides a sound at an absolute reference level. This tonearm incorporates a conical tube and the vertical bearings have a highly damped brass housing. The conical tube is internally damped and divided into two parts which, while further aiding damping, also allows for easy azimuth adjustment. A special mechanism, using a simple Allen key, allows the tube to be rotated back and forth in minimal increments with no air gap. This mechanism is submerged in silicone grease for further damping. A marker line clearly shows the azimuth position and facilitates use, while allowing for repeated adjustments. Tonearm geometry, bearing, wires and other parts are the same as Stogi and effective mass differs only slightly.

   World-Class phono cartridges for your high-end system. Shelter Moving Coil phono cartridge is divided 2 major lines. The first series is “Ultimate Line” which consists of 60t dry-carbon fiber to the housing and aiming the future of analog playback. Another series call “Legendary Line” which is succeeding matured analog playback technology of 80’s faithfully to the current product.

Ultimate Line - The MC phono cartridge explores unknown possibility of analog playback.

Ultimate Line is extreme MC phono cartridge series, the material structure renewed after almost a quarter of century by means of adopting ultra-degree hardness dry-carbon fiber to its housing while succeeding the fundamental motor system design philosophy of Shelter. The compression ratio of 60t class carbon fiber material used to Ultimate Line has far higher hardness than conventional 24t dry-carbon fiber, which material is the world-first time to use the phono cartridge. In addition to the dry-carbon fiber’s original characteristic of resonance free, high internal loss and elastic rate with superb shielding effect to external noise, the 60t carbon fiber used to Shelter Ultimate Line reproduces subtle signal without coloration and deep quietness, and its structure is effective to all other aspects in different dimension. The flagship model of Harmony is adopting innocent solid dry-carbon fiber for entire housing and affiliated model of Accord adopts the same material to its base plate. With adopting the leading-edge of carbon fiber technology available in Japan the Shelter MC phono cartridge explores unknown possibility of analog playback. We hope that you enjoy to listening the new reproduction ability through Shelter Ultimate Line.

Legendary Line - The “new-classic” MC phono cartridge continuously evolves with conveying the brightness of analog’s maturity period to the present day.

Legendary Line is traditional MC phono cartridge with faithfully succeeding the basic design of Model 701 series, which was sold in 1986 as the first generation of Shelter product. The sound is extremely smooth and gentle, and yet it has minute information volume and quietness, which are compatible at higher dimensions. With using stable material based on the long result such as aluminum alloy body housing, simple and legitimate motor structure, aluminum-clad boron cantilever, 0.3 x 0.7 mil elliptical diamond stylus tip and others, it yields flexibility of limitless sound tuning. Legendary Line conveys 80’ analog record reproduction brightness with succeeding the ancient technique faithfully to the present day. After 30 years to mature it reaches to esoteric expressive power which melting the listener’s heart instantaneously and we trust that you can leave an important record playback in peace forever.

BAT VK-P12SE REFERENCE TUBE PHONO PREAMP

 

   The BAT makes five reference tube phono preamps. here is the BAT VK-P12SE is one of our reference tube phono preamp here at The Palace. The sound quality and up to 80 dB of gain for world-class low output MM/MC cartridges makes these BAT phono preamps the best of its kind. BAT makes several models of phono preamps please give us a call or stop by to discuss the best option for you. The BAT's Phono Preamps preserves the delicate signals generated by modern phono cartridges requires consummate engineering skill and musical sensitivity.

THE LARGEST-VALUE OIL CAPACITORS IN ANY BAT COMPONENT

Reaching dramatic new performance levels while pristinely preserving the delicate signals generated by modern cartridges, the VK-P12SE SuperPak represents a new reference for phonostages. Building on knowledge gained during the design of BAT’s groundbreaking REX amplification products, the second-generation SuperPak yields a far more open sound, with a more coherent portrayal of musical texture from the lowest to the highest frequencies—and an astonishingly vibrant, three-dimensional soundstage. The SuperPak replaces electrolytic capacitors in the most critical first two gain stages with the largest-value oil capacitors ever employed in a BAT design. Boasting state-of-the-art engineering achievements, individual technical advancements, and awe-inspiring synergy, VK-P12SE SuperPak pays priceless dividends on your investment in vinyl.

YEARS IN THE MAKING: A "TRANSFORMATIONAL" TRANSFORMER-COUPLED OUTPUT STAGE

Like the elite VK-33SE, VK-53SE and REX II preamplifiers, the VK-P12SE SuperPak features a transformer-coupled output stage. This new design replaces BAT’s venerable Six-Pak of output capacitors with custom-designed output transformers. In order to achieve this “transformational” goal, years were spent prototyping and testing various alternative output transformer designs.  All the work paid off: BAT’s new transformer-coupled output stage proves substantially superior to any capacitor in maintaining a purity of signal transmission.  Electrically, these output transformers significantly improve the VK-P12SE’s performance in every measured respect. Sonically, they offer improvements in every area of musical reproduction.

MATCHLESS ENGINEERING, UNRIVALED PARTS QUALITY, NONPAREIL OPERATION

The heart of the VK-P12SE SuperPak is an all-tube zero-feedback design that combines the benefits of balanced operation with complementary vacuum-tube current sources. Dual-mono construction and enormous energy reserves are matched by extensive flexibility in cartridge loading. The first gain stage achieves a very low noise floor via premium Vishay Bulk Foil resistors that replace metal film resistors. An upgraded power supply contributes to more responsive, visceral bass.  Vacuum-tube current sources further improve the linearity and yield a more open, textured sound. Dual 6SN7 vacuum tubes act as current sources for the second gain stage. A differential RIAA network ensures all your records will sound the way the recording engineer intended, permitting ease of adjustment and improved common mode noise rejection. Plus, second-generation step-up transformers provide as much as a 20db improvement in signal-to-noise ratio in comparison to direct mode operation. With up to 80dB of gain available, no signal is too small. All you have to do is listen.
