Swiss idler drive based design which competes easily with turntables costing three to four times the price. This example model of the latest version Artisan Fidelity Lenco Reference transcription idler drive is finished in absolutely breathtaking Audi Pearlescent White. The striking paint finish appears just slightly off-White from a distance but when viewed from an angle or up close and in the light, the Pearlesent White iridescence shimmers like no other. One must actually see the finish in person to appreciate how beautiful this turntable really is, amazing color. From a purely sonic perspective, this is a reference analog front end, which easily competes with designs with stratospheric prices. Drive and energy, superb dynamics both macro and micro, Bass detail and extension which just must be heard to believe. Our Lenco plinth design has slowly evolved over the course of the last three years and has reached a point of truly epic standards in terms of analog sound reproduction. This front end is both a showpiece and a musical reference in terms of analog playback.
