TONEAudio Magazine 2018 Analog Product Of The Year Award Winner
“The Singer Porsche of turntables. When listening to acoustic instruments, especially the violin and flute, their delicacy and sustain floats in mid, air captivating you. If you have been considering the ultimate expression of the idler drive platform we can’t recommend the Artisan Fidelity Statement highly enough.”
— Jeff Dorgay, Publisher
Dagogo Review Quotes by Jack Roberts - "Alive, Energetic, Dynamic"
"Bowed strings are a big test for any system. With the Statement my
system played bowed strings with the sweetness and air of real life."
"Is the Artisan Fidelity even in the same league with tables like a Shindo, AMG, Clearaudio and other world class turntables? The answer is simple, yes indeed. It matches or surpasses any of these tables in build quality, beauty and most of all the way it plays music."
"Plucked strings like guitars, basses and harps sounded very natural
and full. On these instruments, the Statement allowed me to first hear
the leading edge that sounded fast, quick, and dynamic. After that I
could hear the decay and air inside and around the instrument. This
table allowed my system to reproduce both acoustical and electric bass
instruments with incredible impact as well as a fundamental rightness."
