PRE-AUDIO TURNTABLES PACK LINEAR TRACKING TONEARMS THAT FLOAT ON AIR

StereoNET has been told to expect something special from turntable maker, Pre-audio, at High End Munich.

Based in Nysa, Poland, Pre-Audio specialises in producing record players with tangential arms and this year it will show a new model from ASP-15 series.

Pre-Audio will be demonstrating the world's first record player with a built-in compressor. The compressor is used to 'float' the tonearm on an 'air bearing'. As the air pressure required is minimal (0.030MPa), the company can use a compressor that works without causing vibrations or sound.

The ASP-15 series uses a brushed aluminium tonearm as standard, but you get also get the option of chrome plated, or gold plated varients.

The second reveal that Pre-Audio has in store for attendees at the Munich show is a record player where not only the arm is suspended on an air bearing but also the platter!

It certainly looks like 2019 could be a good year for linear arm turntables, and we genuinely wish Pre-Audio much success with their new models and hope that we have the opportunity to take a closer look at this brand's offerings later in the year.

Intrigued? We are too. Furthermore, we cannot wait to see and hear these new turntables in action at their premiere in Munich: Atrium 4.2 room 217. See you there!
