The Invictus turntable has been in development for three years. It is the result of intensive research and development by the manufacturers at Acoustic Signature.
This incomparable turntable has been assembled with a total of 479 individual, hand-constructed parts. Up to four tone arms can be added in its construction; the Invictus can be fitted with approximately every tone arm thereby enabling a never before existent flexibility and at the same time fulfilling the highest demands in musicality, rendition and aesthetics.
The base for the Invictus consists of an elaborately shaped lower section optimized in terms of stiffness and low vibration according to the latest knowledge in mechanics and application of finite element methods. A perfectly shaped cover panel is placed over this with the actual Invictus chassis resting on top of it.
itself is a three dimensional work of art that is capable of perfectly supporting up to four tone arms simultaneously. Soft contours, sloping and round surfaces are arranged here in a never before existent artistic synthesis. Even so, the shape is successful for the function and is not an end in itself.
The 3-tiered aluminum and brass sandwich platter is likewise completely new. It is manufactured to fit precisely in combination with a high damping work. With their vibration absorption, the 54 silencer inserts provide for the last grain of fine tuning – the result: a perfect platter. High damping with high rotation energy. Soundwise, it is very progressive.
Our Tidorfolon bearing allows anyone with an eye for the extraordinary to instantly recognize how this hand-tuned slide bearing has been perfectly formed to guide the platter with approximately no clearance and likewise no friction or sound. Our Tidorfolon bearing is valued and admired by fans and experts all over the world for its precision and its legendary reliability. It is always manufactured with great love for detail and precision in accordance with the best fine mechanical tradition.
The drive system is a very important component for a superior turntable. We have started completely afresh here. The development was influenced by our 20 years of experience. The result is a silencer platter positioned above a cone-shaped sub-platter propelled by a 6-motor drive system. The 6 motors create enormous power for speedy running of the platter. The round assembly surrounding the bearing prevents any pull so that it can be perfectly centered.
We have performed very extensive developmental work for the “silent run” technology in the digital motor controller. In the end, the result compensated for all the hard work. Digital electronics constantly measure the motors and adjust all motors for minimal vibration and the greatest smooth running. Fully automatic and always exact. The result is a drive motor system which you can touch without sensing if the motor is running or not. Satisfactory enough to find its use in Invictus.
The sum of new developments in connection with 20 years of experience in turntable construction has produced a turntable in Invictus which we consider a statement in turntable construction. The Invictus is worthy of comparison to considerably more expensive products. Every single one of my 15 co-workers has brought their best to Invictus.
We had a lot of fun and amazing experiences in listening during our developmental phase, and with personalized installation we would like to ensure that your Invictus plays perfectly in your own rooms.
