This is a Demo of our Composer Solo table that has been used AXPONA and CAF.  This table has maybe 60 hours on the motor and less than 30 hours on the stylus.  It ships with our regenerative, Phase 1 power supply.  This unit has a UK power supply on board the table and needs the Phase 1 to be plugged into the wall.  It also ship with an Ortofon TA-110 Tone Arm and Cadenza Blue MC Cartridge.  

 

Technically the Composer turntables are second to none. They consist of a plinth made from black anodized aluminum machined to a tolerance of +/- 0.01mm which is mounted on three machined aluminum feet.   

To ensure rotational stability, the Composer has a dual motor design.  These two AC motors provide excellent torque and when matched paired with the Phase 1 Power Supply, you can achieve flawless speed control.  

We then have the first centrally mounted CNC machined subplatter that is perfectly concentric and balanced, If desired, our second high mass sub-plater can be added.  It adds mass, improves rotational stability and gives a strobe marking, (ideal for fine tuning speeds with the Phase 1 power supply). Then you have the  solid “Acetal” acrylic platter. These are machined and polished to a flawless black finish.  Additionally, there is a clear perspex cover system that literally encapsulates the deck when not it use, protecting it from dust, etc. 

The Ortofon TA-110 9" tonearm is the perfect arm for this table.  The Composer Solo was designed to work best with a 9" tonearm and the TA-110 is a perfect match.

To Quote The Absolute Sound from their 2016 Buyer's Guide:

"Ortofon's TA-110 tonearm is an outstanding value.  This statically balanced, gimbal-type arm uses a Baerwald-style armtube, Ortofon's highest-quality bearings, and a detachable headshell, and includes a very good, 6N, high purity copper cable...

What the TA-110 does, it does very well.  Utilizing its experience in vibration analysis, Ortofon injects rubber into a slit in the armtube…, dampening resonances and yielding an arm with remarkable transparency, low coloration and precise, natural soundstage...”

 

Cadenza Blue

Cadenza Blue is true to the music with a tremendous clarity.

The Cadenza Blue model is using a Nude FG 70 stylus with a very thin ruby cantilever.  The coils are made from 6NX (99.9999 %) pure silver wire.  An improved winding process on the armature allows a better channel balance.

The soundstage of Cadenza Blue is wide open and grandiose straight out of the box. Micro dynamic and ambience will be evident when listening to complex compositions. It reaches a very high degree of definition in the perspective, which is very present.
