Avid Volvere SP Turntable

Avid Sequel SP BlackMany of the engineering innovations we have pioneered in our flagship, reference models are equally relevant to all our turntables.

Nowhere is this more evident than in the Volvere.

This latest generation incorporates our latest DSP signal-generating power supply, totally removing the vagaries of the mains power signal and allowing precise calibration of motor speed. Introduction of the new twin belt drive system and revised bearing has improved platter dynamics, yet further improving the sound quality.

Conceived as a belt drive, sprung subchassis design, Volvere is designed and built to the same precision engineering standards as the Acutus turntable. Bespoke versions of the unique clamping, stainless steel bearing and suspension systems have been developed and applied to this novel design.

External vibrations are dissipated by the unique AVID variable frequency suspension system, effectively isolating the entire system from extraneous influence yet without the softening of dynamic response often allied to such systems.

Suspension dynamics are further improved in this latest version using revised lateral damping isolation bands and lastly but by no means least, a massive platter.

The result? Vibration caused by the stylus during playback is transmitted to the subchassis directly through the main bearing and not absorbed into the platter. The clarity and depth of the performance under reference listening tests is a testament to the attention to detail bestowed on the design and the manufacture.

Schröder Reference SQ Tone arm

Schröder tonearms are mechanical works of art. Easy to setup, precise and compatible with most phono cartridges. The sound is uncoloured by the arm resulting in the most beautiful vinyl playback with minimal artifacts impacting the overall performance. Timbres, textures and dynamics in the recording are fully preserved. This is the best sounding tonearm we ever used.

Audio Analogue AAPhono

Audio Analogue’s PureAA line aims to draw on some of the key ideas and features of the Anniversary amplifiers but to apply them in a slightly different way. While the Anniversary amps are masters of minimalist focus, the PureAA line sports a set of added features designed to appeal to music lovers who seek a wider range of functions and connections in a single product.

The New AAphono features high quality components with very tight tolerances throughout. Even so, it also incorporates a parallel circuit design in which any errors inherent within components are effectively cancelled out, adding a further ‘safety net’ to ensure consistently high performance.

The AAphono phono stage is fully configurable for both MM and MC cartridges. Highly versatile, it offers plenty of adjustable options that allow you to perfectly tailor its set-up according to your chosen cartridge. These include gain and loading for MC cartridges but also the less common MM input capacitance and resistance. At the same time, the AAphono is effortlessly simple to use. No need to power off, cool down and delve ‘under the hood’. Simply press an easily accessible button to make your adjustments, which will be saved when the unit is switched off or even disconnected.

In addition, three separate toroidal transformers form the heart of the power supply, and hence the heart of the phono stage – one for each of the stereo channels (left and right) and, to keep the audio signal as pure as possible, a third one supplies the control circuitry. In addition, the power supply includes multiple filters to ensure that every section of the AAphono has the best possible operating conditions.

Wilson Benesch Circle 25


To celebrate the company’s 25th Silver Anniversary, Wilson Benesch introduced the Circle 25 Turntable and A.C.T. 25 Tonearm to one of its longest established product lines; The Analogue Collection.

The new Circle 25 Turntable references the classic Circle Turntable. Fifteen years on from the launch of the original Circle Turntable, Wilson Benesch has reworked many of the critical elements, vastly improving the design and breathing new life into a classic.

The History of the ‘Analogue Collection’
Since the company’s inception in 1989, Wilson Benesch has maintained an unwavering commitment to the development of analogue replay systems.

Central to our design ethos from the outset has been the concept that synergy must exist between tonearm and turntable design and that they should in fact be regarded as one system. Many reading this will appreciate the crucial importance of finding synergy in audio components and many will also appreciate that combining some of the best components, for example amplifiers and loudspeakers, does not guarantee an excellent HiFi system. It follows that components conceived and designed as one synergistic system is the optimum process through which harmony and true excellence can be achieved.

Goldring Ethos Moving Coil Phono Cartridge


Goldring Ethos

Ethos is a truly high-end cartridge featuring a vital-shank, nude-diamond stylus. This polyhedral, line-contact profile was chosen because it has a very low tip-mass and a large contact area whilst being very narrow from front to back; even enabling the un-distorted retrieval of ultrasonic frequencies in a recording. In order to properly process this information, at the heart of the Ethos cartridge is Goldring’s hand-built GOL-1 moving-coil generator. Featuring a hand-wound cross-shaped, soft-iron armature and married to a low resonance aircraft aluminum chassis, each one is precision tuned by our expert craftsmen to achieve our best ever level of performance. The result is that one becomes simply immersed in the musical experience …and that’s our whole Ethos.

Available now at My Kind of Music, Toronto

Moerch DP-6 Tonearm

moerch-tonearms-gold-and-chrome1Model DP-6 has a unique combination of bearings. A silicone-damped, high precision ball-bearing assembly is used for the horizontal mode of motion. Two precision sapphire bearings are incorporated for the vertical mode of motion, which may be damped also, if desired, by injecting silicone fluid into a well for vertical damping. The damping of the horizontal mode of motion is independent of the damping of vertical mode of motion, and the latter can further be adjusted to all intermediate levels of damping.

In model DP-6 the azimuth adjustment for perfect channel separation is accomplished at the pivot of one of the sapphire bearings.

Vertical cross section of model DP-6 through the center of the bearings.

Supplied in CHROME- or 24 carat GOLD finish and at special orders also in BLACK.

Available for audition exclusively at MKoM, Toronto.
