FUNK FIRM LSD (LITTLE SUPER DECK)
BRAND NEW IN BOX OPENED FOR INSPECTION AND REPACKED
OFFERED AT 60% OFF LIST!!
Funk Firm's Arthur Khoubesserian started designing turntables in 1979, and came to acclaim with the extraordinary Pink Triangle. The "Little Super Deck" uses Funk Firm's patented Vector Drive, a three-point drive system that uses one DC motor and two slave pulleys to provide unsurpassed stability. The new F5-II arm allows for simple setup with an innovative calibrated sliding weight on the arm beam that will allow for perfect support of any cartridge. The glass platter comes with a felt mat, but you can upgrade to a Funk Achromat for even better performance.
The LSD's tempered glass platter rotates atop a hand burnished bearing, is driven by a superb motor, and is stabilized by a unique three-pulley vector drive. In the F5-II tonearm, Khoubesserian’s choice of materials and construction technique result in a design with well behaved resonances and superb tracking ability. A clever variable mass tracking weight system helps optimize the arm for different cartridges, in essence making the arm a variable mass design, and thus means means the choice of cartridges is thrown wide open. The clever headshell makes it easy to fit cartridges and adjust overhang and azimuth by using just a single screw. Extraordinary reviews for such an inexpensive turntable!
"Putting the Funk Firm LSD through its paces proves that this table is a steal...I could not find fault with the LSD, no matter what kind of music I listened to. Those stepping up from anything in the $500-to-$1,000 range will be shocked at how much music is lurking in their record collection." Jeff Dorgay, TONEAudio
"I have taken quite a liking to the Little Super Deck. The focus is always on the musical content of the grooves. Throughout my listening I felt involved with the music, rather than just listening to it, which is surely the whole point of the exercise." Tony Bolton, Hi-Fi World
“... the reality is you have to go quite far up the high-end turntable food chain to find something that outright bests the LSD. This is one of those rare decks that gives its all, all of the time; you don’t need a particularly expensive system to hear what the LSD brings to the table, but if you do have a high-performance, high price system in place, the LSD never lets the side down. It has none of the bloat that can come when trying to shoe-horn a big turntable into a little system and none of the screechy brightness when going in the other direction. It just has that ‘getting out of the way’ quality that a handful of good decks have. It’s odd. The decks that have a sonic signature to them end up getting thousands of words spent on the sound quality and yet when it comes to the LSD, descriptions of its sonic performance are all but irrelevant. You pick a piece of music, play it and you know it’s doing something very right indeed. No need to discuss detail, imagery, transparency, dynamics, tonal balance or any of those things – it just makes your records sound like music.” Allen Sircom, The Absolute Sound
