Acoustic Signature designer Gunther Frohnhöfer has been building mass loaded aluminum-based turntables for decades. Acoustic Signature turntables are solid, non-suspended designs with heavy platters and electronically controlled drive motors. Their
maintenance-free bearings are meant to last a lifetime, while their
exchangeable tonearm plates allow for easy swapping of tonearms.

TAS 2016 Product of the Year & 2017 Editor's Choice Awards:

"Though the Challenger Mk3 may not have the sheer low-end weight and power of theesteemed German manufacturer's upper tier designs, it still delivers purity,
focus, elegance of presentation, and exceptional musicality. Drums, for
instance, may not have the ultimate punch, but are still terrifically fast,
textured and explosive."

"Call it a Challenger that punches above its weight - and TAS' 2016 TURNTABLE OF THE

Stereophile Recommended Components Awards  Oct 2016:
Acoustic Signature Triple X:  "Anyone considering the purchase of a more
expensive high-mass turntable owes it to himself/herself to audition the
Acoustic Signature Triple X before spending money on something else."
(Vol.38 No.9 WWW)

Acoustic Signature WOWXXL: "Compared with RD's Linn LP12 record player, the
combination of WOW XXL and Acoustic Signature TA-1000 tonearm produced greater
dynamics and detail, greater vitality in the sounds of brass instruments, and
more convincing reproduction of space."

Acoustic Signature WOWXL:  Described by HR as "the lowest  priced,
high-quality turntable I know of that can be purchased with  a blank

Questions for the seller
Dear sirs How much are you asking for the silencer platter and the additional motor. Thanks
I never change the price in the ad when the price on the turntable went up. The new price is actually $5290. I will honor the price of $4495 for a few days for you. The price of the silencer platter would be $995. The price for an additional motor would be $595. Chris
