unit is being sold so we can bring in a new direct-drive turntable that will be coming from Art Audio.
Price excludes arm and cartridge. We have an arm and cartridge shown in the photos at AXPONA and at home that I am not allowed to advertise on Audiogon without violating my dealer agreement. This arm and cartridge are a superb match for this table. PM me for brand and model of arm and cartridge.
If you want the table with Arm & Cartridge, price is $9749. We are happy to sell this table with Arm & Cartridge.
This is the Demo-Unit of the Composer Solo turntable and Phase 1 power supply. These must sell together as the Composer Solo has a UK power supply and the Phase 1 is needed to ensure proper power conversion.
This was the analog input for our room at AXPONA - Check out our room review at part-time audiophile:
It’s no secret that the Art Audio Composer started life as the Clarity Turntables made by Claro Engineering, the world respected aerospace engineers. However, for various reasons, this project, which was started by Claro for a client never came to fruition. At this point, Art Audio saw the potential of the basic design and took over the project and its future development. The company’s managing director and designer, Tom Willis, was well suited to this as his background was initially in electro-mechanical engineering.
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.
