They said perfection was impossible, strive for excellence and settle for a job well done. Acutus was born from twenty years of chasing perfection and remains almost unchanged today after a quarter century in production. Launching not only the company, but an ethos to strive for perfection in everything we do, today it is the Acutus Classic.
Wiping away convention, the Acutus removes layers of distortion that haze the sound, so you hear only what is captured within your records.
Vinyl sceptics turn into fans, marvelling at the superlative bass grip the Acutus displays and its vast widescreen projection of the soundstage, thunderous dynamics and crescendos always drawing a smile.
The advantage of direct-drive turntables is their motor torque; by comparison, to minimize motor vibration on the platter, belt-drive turntables normally use low power motors coupled to a tiny belt.
Flying in the face of convention, AVID utilizes a powerful synchronous motor and twin drive belts, with dominating control over the heavy platter and the results are truly breath-taking, with deep dynamic bass and stunning rhythmic timing.
