The A1 Automat: Precision Meets Automation

  • Fully Automatic Start/Stop: The A1 features a fully automatic mechanism that engages at the start, precisely placing the tonearm on the record’s lead-in groove. Once the record begins to play, the automatics disengage, ensuring they have no influence on the playback quality.
  • ULM Aluminium Tonearm with Ortofon OM10 Cartridge: The 8.3” ultra-light-mass aluminium tonearm, paired with the Ortofon OM10 cartridge, delivers fast response and detailed transients and microdynamics. The tracking force and anti-skating are pre-adjusted, offering a plug-and-play setup suitable for both vinyl beginners and seasoned audiophiles.
  • Carbon Fibre Reinforced Headshell: Crafted from carbon fibre reinforced polymer, the headshell is exceptionally stable and rigid, yet incredibly lightweight, optimizing internal damping of resonances.
  • Heavy Wood Chassis: Designed to minimize hollow spaces, the heavy chassis of the A1 significantly reduces unwanted resonances, enhancing the overall sound quality.
  • Precision Balanced Aluminium Damped Platter: The platter features an internal damping ring, adding weight and reducing resonances for optimal balance and minimal wow and flutter deviations.
  • Connect it E – Semi-balanced RCA Cable: The high-quality, semi-balanced, low-capacitance phono RCA cable ensures an excellent connection to your amplifier.
  • Built-in Switchable Phono Preamp: The A1 includes a built-in phono preamp for setups without an external preamplifier, with the option to switch it off if desired.
  • 33/45 RPM Compatibility: Easily switch between LPs and singles without changing the belt position, thanks to the single-button speed control.

Goods returned for repair will be assessed and/or repaired within a reasonable time. You may be provided with an indicative repair time, which time may vary due to reasons beyond ours or the repairer’s reasonable control, such as part availability and incorrect fault description.
