Two Channel Audio > Turntable

Blackbird

by Dr. Feickert
Manual Belt-Drive Turntable with Tonearm

The mission:
… was to enhance the technical base of the Woodpecker to push forward the sound quality & have Dual Arm capability. Running 2 tonearms was a requirement but we also implemented some new ideas on the drive section. We refined the controller software to drive two motors simultaneously, in a kind of a master-slave configuration.

By putting the two motors in a 180° position around the bearing cancels out all the reactive forces that could cause gyration of the platter. We achieved a better randomization of wow & flutter with less disturbing of the hearing process & lowered the bearing rumble at the same time.

The result:
… An enhanced supremacy in sound with excellent measurements & a timeless elegant style, combined with absolute ease of use. As a world‘s first, we have integrated a dedicated Protractor that is blatantly simple in use. You will be amazed by how easy it is to setup your phono cartridge.

The sound
… absolute, energetic, powerful & neutral at the same time. No matter which tonearm you are planning to use. Relax & take a trip into the fascination of music knowing that not even the smallest detail on the vinyl is being kept back.
