AVID Volvere Sequel SP Turntable

"Minimalist style with tremendous sound quality"

New, improved "SP" version incorporates AVID's new DSP signal generating power supply. Final speed can now be accurately adjusted and motor stability and vibration is also improved. In addition the new twin belt drive system and revised bearing has improved platter dynamics, further improving the sound quality of an already world class audio product.

"Eagle-eyed readers may have gleaned from all this that I rather liked the AVID Volvere Sequel, and they're right ... It combines the rugged build and superlative mechanical integrity of an oil rig with the delicacy, precision and finesse of the best hand-made mechanical watches. Its sound is so neutral and open that it's almost impossible to ascribe character to. A high end turntable of rare completeness, it offers breathtaking all round sound from a superbly balanced belt drive chassis. Superb stability; glassy transparency; breathtaking dynamics; unerring musicality; design, packaging, set-up"  

            -David Price HiFi World

"Audio Heaven"

A cross between the company's flagship Acutus and its base model the Volvere, this is a heavyweight suspended turntable that means business from the outset. Put a favorite LP on the platter, screw down the fine threaded clamp and let the stylus in the groove and you'll hear things you never expected vinyl to deliver. Killer bass that goes all the way down and shakes the furniture, the most transparent of midranges that lets everything through, and the sweetest highs imaginable. Absolute results depend on the arm used but if these are half decent you'll be reveling in analogue audio heaven... The degree of precision available means that you will hear every detail within the context of a fluent musical whole that cannot be ignored, such is the coherence and integration of the performance." 

The AVID Sequel SP, use's technology from the Acutus within the mechanical framework of the Volvere.

Recent improvements have included a revised suspension, bearing and platter. Cosmetic changes to the motor unit and power supply also made for an improved visual appearance, making it a delight to behold and use.

Now the Sequel improves again, still incorporating the power supply and motor from the Acutus, but now with the DSP signal generation to allow fine speed adjustment and improved motor vibration control. Added to this our new twin belt drive and revised bearing the improvement in sound quality is instantly noticeable over the standard Volvere.

Improved dynamics, imaging and information retrieval brings you closer than ever to the performance of the Acutus. Extended frequency extremes, especially in the lower registers again make this a class-leading product.
