Simply put, TW Acustic of Germany have been quietly manufacturing the finest  performing and most beautiful turntables in the world for years. In today's crazy world of High End Audio it is increasingly common to see tables costing well over $50K, $100K, or even $150K. Further, are the engineering complexities that many of these tables bring forth needed? We think not!

We can make the case that turntables have very simple jobs, though not easily perfected. 1) Hold speed under all conditions, 2) Minimize noise and vibrations from all sources, 3) Operate Consistently and reliably, 4) Play Nice with a wide variety of Tonearms, Cartridges, and Phono Stages, and 5) Look great in the eyes of the beholder leading to admiration and pride of ownership.

For many in analog, the last criteria is the most important and we subscribe to that importance. With so many choices these days, we do preach that a turntable’s aesthetic appeal should be paramount, but NOT AT THE EXPENSE OF COMPROMISING ON ANY OF THE OTHER CRITERIA NOTED.

Further, we are firmly in the KISS Principal camp. Turntables should be engineered with sound mechanical engineering, well sourced and specialized materials, and Precision..Precision..Precision! Complex “Mousetrap type designs” with any number of complex compensation systems only add to the difficulty in building the ideal table resulting in a lifelong “set it and forget it” experience.

For above reasons, we strongly feel that TW Acustic tables represent the best value in analogue audio. Add TW's unrivaled in house build quality and aesthetic beauty and these tables will likely be the last table brand you'll ever buy.

About this table….


This specific offering is for our flagship Raven AC Three Motor Anniversary SE Model store/show demo. Distinguished by the massive two post primary arm board, the Anniversary SE was only manufactured for a short period due to its excessive cost. Ongoing AC tables utilize TW's more conventional individual pivoting arm boards.

Adding to the Anniversary SE, we've added all available factory upgrades bringing the performance and aesthetics of this table nearly to that of TW Acustic's Flagship Black Knight Model.

Factory and Related Upgrades to this Table Include:
- 3 Motor / 3 Pulley Heavy Duty Synchronized Motor
- Solid Copper 3 Motor Top
- Solid Copper Black Knight Platter (Standard on Anniversary SE)
- Black Knight Feet
- TW Raven 10.5 inch Arm w/ On the Fly Arm Riser (Table to be sold in a one arm configuration.)
- TW / Zanden Reference Record Mat

- Two (2) Additional Arm Board Towers (For adding up to two additional arms)
- SRA Ohio Base designed specifically for TW Raven Anniversary (By Silent
   Running Audio)

NOTE 1: We are also including a Brand-New never used Raven AC Motor Controller with this table to ensure years of reliable, care free operation.
NOTE 2: The record weight and second arm board are not included in this sale.
________________________________

The condition of this table is excellent with no dings, scratches or flaws. The copper is aesthetically outstanding with no oxidation or pitting. The table has never been consumer owned and has only been out of our shop for one trade show. We are an authorized TW Acustic dealer and are well trained with the use and maintenance of these tables. This table has been systematically cleaned and its bearing properly lubricated on an quarterly basis.

The SRA Platform condition is good but does exhibit several surface scratches and paint marks on the top surface. Note that the satin finish was a SRA factory finish but is no longer available. Finishes are now high gloss only.
