LP's on the Sequel SP exhibit a free, airy, spacious clarity you never get from silver disc. The precision and focus of CD is there, but without that dry and clinical quality you also get.
Sequel is so much more than a step-up model from the Volvere. With a touch of high-end engineering finesse, the already robust chassis and structure benefit from a bespoke suspension system, bearing and platter.
Following our policy of continuous improvement, upgrades to power supply and motor which we developed for our Acutus Reference model have also been applied here, using the same principles of DSP signal generation to reduce vibration and allow fine calibration of motor speed.
The twin belt drive and revised bearing makes the improvement in sound quality instantly noticeable over the Volvere.
Additionally our new improved stronger main chassis now integrates the arm cable management.
Building upon the strengths of the standard Volvere model, the presentation is dramatically focussed and paints a vividly realistic image of the recording.
Aside from the superlative audio performance, the Sequel is one of the more aesthetically pleasing models in the world of high-end turntables and a worthy centrepiece for any domestic hi-fi system.
