AVID Volvere SP Turntable
- Stunningly finished in Silver or Black.
Latest version AVID Volvere "has more sparkle than our reference SME 20A and makes it sound relatively cumbersome in comparison"
-Jason Kennedy of HI-FI Choice.
New, improved "SP" version incorporating 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.
AVID builds some of the world's most technologically advanced turntables, and the new version of their highly acclaimed AVID Volvere is no exception! Not only is this table absolutely stunning to behold, every aspect of the Volvere has been designed and machined in-house to the absolute highest tolerances. This is a table you could easily live with for the next 25 years! The active suspension of the Volvere perfectly isolates the table from any vibrations in the room. There is no turntable we know of with a suspension as sophisticated as this anywhere near this price. That's AVID's design philosophy: keep all vibration away from the LP and the stylus in the groove, and you'll hear so much more of the micro-detail that's been buried in the grooves of your LPs! Pace, rhythm and timing are not just buzz words used by audio reviewers, when you hear your music played back on this table you will be pulling LPs off your rack with your jaw open.
The AVID Volvere SP turntable uses many of the unique design elements of the much-acclaimed Acutus turntable at an affordable price.
In brief this is a belt drive, sprung subchassis design. Built to the same engineering standards as the Acutus turntable and incorporating a similar clamping, bearing and suspension design. Vibration caused by the stylus during playback is transmitted to the subchassis directly through the main bearing and not absorbed into the platter. This is achieved using a unique matting material and clamping system.
External vibrations are isolated by the unique AVID variable frequency suspension system, giving optimum isolation without the 'wobble' commonly found in other designs.
Recently the Volvere was revised into the Series 4. Improvements over previous versions included improved vertical suspension with integrated lateral isolation bands with adjustability from above. A full stainless steel bearing like the Acutus and thicker platter, some 40% heavier and cosmetic improvements to the feet and clamp, making a real engineering statement.
Now the Volvere evolves further into the improved 'SP' version. Incorporating our 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.
Stunningly finished in Silver or Black, this product is the natural choice for the discerning vinyl enthusiast.
