Andrea Divirgilio / November 4, 2012

Result of years of development and design, here’s the world’s first counter-rotating dual platter suspended turntable proudly introduced by Kronos Audio, a Canada-based manufacturer who believes in superior sound using craftsmanship and simplicity. Designed to provide an unparalleled level of stability, creating a suitable environment to extract more and more of finest musical information from the vinyl records, the Kronos turntable actually reassesses key elements of any turntable, the motor, platter, suspension and materials.

The innovative Kronos turntable breaks the rule of traditional audio design of turntables, earning the distinction of being the very first of its kind. As it features two identical high mass platters; one above the other rotating in opposite directions and moving at precisely the same speed.

And, this innovative engineering which also includes the usage of aerospace metallurgic technology actually eliminates the unwanted torsional forces, resulting in a unique turntable platform with unrivaled stability.

Limited to just 250 examples, the Kronos turntable priced at $28,000, to become one of the world’s most expensive turntable, comes entirely hand-assembled and duly adjusted and tested, before being shipped in its custom built flight case.

Also, we have earlier seen some of the finest turntables, including the recently launched Clearaudio’s high-end Ovation turntable with chassis made of bulletproof-wood, the AMG V12 turntable which is a new chapter in the world of vinyl playback, and the Hartvig TT Signature turntable which is the premium example of pure Danish hand-craftsmanship, to name a few.
