Acutus Dark Iron product details 

High-mass platter and upgradable mat

The turntable features a hefty 10 kg aluminum platter, topped with a 10 mm damping disc and a TMShrunk felt-composite mat. Buyers can upgrade to our precision resin mat, enhancing vibration transfer through the grounding clamp for superior sound quality.

The platter sits upon an inverted bearing design which lowers the centre of gravity, where a tungsten carbide ball meets a sapphire jewel, eliminating lateral movement and rumble noise. A self-lubricating sleeve ensures silent, maintenance-free operation.
Upgradable clamp

The supplied single-action clamp, which is precision-machined from solid aluminum, flattens records onto the platter, channelling vibrations to the sub-chassis to reduce noise. We offer a dual-operation upgrade for greater control over varying record thicknesses, eliminating warps and air pockets for seamless record-platter connection.


The Acutus Dark Iron’s one-piece multi-fold aluminum casting offers strength with controlled movement. Coated with damping media, it neutralizes vibrations, ensuring a linear and time-sensitive sound response and coupled to a suspension system that ensures uniform tuning for perfect balance with its 2.5 Hz isolation frequency preventing skipping and eliminating external vibrations.

Happy Listening, MKoM, Toronto
