Dr. Feickert Volare Turntable
Origin Live Mk3A tonearm is standard but contact us for additional tonearm options!
Now available with your choice of black or walnut plinth!
Taking the time to develop everything from scratch, Dr. Feickert finally ended up with a nicely compact and elegant new turntable. This new design has all virtues the German brand is famous for - perfect neutrality, elegance in appearance and build quality, to name only a few.
All the core components used in the bigger model lines underwent an evaluation if they suit the new design approach. It turned out that all of them had to undergo a complete redesign.
Testing and refining recursively ended up in this new design that will be a benchmark not only in its price-range of products. As the universal sliding armboard mechanism could not be transferred to the Volare still there is an easy way to swap to other tonearms almost on-the-fly at low cost in short time.
The new chassis topology is focused on high mass in the center of the bearing. This new bearing is extremely stiff and robust as well as being a low friction design. High inner inertia and an oil bath wet sump approach make this bearing a perfect partner to the high-torque motor design resulting in low rumble and smooth operation.
Audioshield makes a custom dustcover for the Volare. It is a "plinth" style, and will work with the Jelco 250ST, Origin Silver Mk3, and Kuzma Stogi tonearms. The dimensions are (WDH): 16" x 13.5" x 4.5". It is made from 3/16" thick acrylic, and has a 4" x 1" cutout on the right and left sides. Order one here.
