CES & THE Show 2013 Hot Product
While the lineage of the TechDAS Air Force One turntable (tentatively $79,500 alone, $83,500 with Graham Phantom Elite tonearm) cannot be easily seen, it's still significant. The 'table was designed by one of the principals from Micro-Seiki, the legendary Japanese turntable maker. The Air Force One has a multipiece chassis and platter, an air bearing, and high-torque AC motor. Vacuum record hold-down is an option and facilitated without a spindle clamp. It effectively smoothed out a warp in a 200-gram LP.
A sensor beneath the platter monitors and regulates speed, which is adjustable in 0.1rpm steps.
