Avid HiFi Volvere Turntable with Altus Tonearm & Ionic Cartridge Bundle
Nowhere is this more evident than in the Volvere and having evolved over two decades, this latest generation incorporating our latest external DSP signal-generating power supply, which totally removes the vagaries of the mains signal, allows the precise calibration of motor speed so everything is pitch perfect.
"I can easily recommend this turntable with good conscience" - Jeff Dorgay
Designed and handcrafted 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 our variable frequency suspension system, effectively isolating the cartridge from extraneous influence making for a dynamic, powerful sound and full of emotion.
"I just couldn’t believe the sound" - Steve Harris
Listening to your favorite albums, from Led Zeppelin to Beethoven, the Volvere has the ability to reveal everything, from the low bass power of Rock music, or the rhythmic subtleties of Jazz to the full musical spectrum of a Classical masterpiece.
Volvere delivers a substantial sound, its forte being bass, which it delivers with a weight and power that is rare among turntables in this class. There is more than just bass, because of the very low noise floor, real instruments float in the soundscape and there is excellent front to back depth as well as left to right width, sucking you into a soundstage that will bring you into the performance.
