Acoustic Signature Ascona with dedicated stand in very good condition. The Ascona is one of the most advanced belt drive turntables ever made with three motors turn a heavy flywheel that turn the 80 lb platter. The unique platter eliminates the impact of structure-borne vibration, airborne vibration, and bearing noise by removing resonance at all frequencies, and increasing the rotating mass of the platter “to aid stability.”
I have owned this table for 6 years in my dedicated room. It is extremely clean with just a few marks, nothing that can be seen without being 12" from the table. With the dedicated stand, the table is over 400 lbs. It is extremely silent with very black backgrounds, PRAT and excellent speed stability from the flywheel.
The review from the Absolute Sound:
I'm selling this table as I will be downsizing my system due to a pending move. I have all 4 boxes and can ship. A chance to own a world class statement table at a fraction of it's original price. Long time Audiogon member with perfect feedback.
The tonearm in the pictures is not included in this package. The table currently has an SME arm pod, but different arm pods are available from Acoustic Signature.
