Acoustic Signature Primus Turntable

Primus was designed and engineered to achieve outstanding performance far beyond the expectations of an affordably priced turntable: excellent build quality, reliability and a lifetime of musical enjoyment. Free of unnecessary gimmicks, Acoustic Signature concentrated their manufacturing costs on high-quality parts necessary for accurate LP reproduction.The Primus implements a MDF/chipwood-sandwich and a high gloss surface to reduce resonance. This sandwich construction is a perfect fit for the Tidorfolon-bearing holding the platter. A new DC motor combined with 'state-of-the-art' power regulation provide perfect speed stability and easy operation.

The Primus comes with a precision-manufactured aluminum platter produced from a solid piece of soft aluminum. Additionally, to improve resonance-behavior, the platter is bottom-damped. The thickness of 24mm gives it a weight of 4,5 kilogram - much more than most in this class.

Platter Bearing & Drive System

Acoustic Signature believes that a turntable drive-system should have enough energy to steadily start and rotate the platter while affecting in minimally during playback. That goal is achieved by using a newly developed DC motor-drive combined with a highly effective external power supply. Acoustic Signature has invented a bearing with the ideal performance characteristics of exact fit, extremely low noise, very low friction and long term stability covered with a 10-year warranty.

Acoustic Signature TA-500 Tonearm

The TA-500 is a precision-manufactured, 9" tonearm. The precision-machined miniature ball bearing are from manufacturer SKF. The bearings are added with minimal pre-pressure for zero backlash to achieve a minimum friction and maximum stability. The armtube is a custom-made dual-carbon tube. This creates a very rigid armtube with fantasic damping characteristics.
