Arrival of the new milling machine to the Acoustic Signature mnaufactory

News from the factory

The Acoustic Signa­ture team is excited – the new five axis preci­sion milling machine has arri­ved! With 22 tons of weight this was quite a chal­lenge: Two 40 ton trucks were neces­sary for the machine’s deli­very.

The dimen­sions were so huge, that we had to install a new gate to the factorys loading dock first in order to get this 3.9 meter high state of the art produc­tion tool into the manu­factu­ring premises…

Acoustic Signature NEO:
A new future in sound

For almost a quarter of a century, Acoustic Signa­ture has been dedi­cated to vinyl play­back – with one goal: to build the best turn­tables in the world! We want to set stan­dards in terms of manu­factu­ring quality, techno­logies and relia­bility. Our turn­tables should become true design icons and create sound pain­tings of extra­ordi­nary beauty that touch the soul.

On the way to our goal we have inspired many analog lovers all over the world. Inter­natio­nal high-end journa­lists have showered us with awards and prizes. With sound-signi­ficant tech­nical achieve­ments, which were reco­gnized as inno­va­tions every­where, we left a lasting mark on the analog audio land­scape. Our Silencer as well as our CLD techno­logy (Constraint Layer Damping) reduced turn­table and chassis reso­nan­ces to a previously unknown extent, our main­te­nance-free Tidorfolon® bearing was charac­terized by a noise- and friction-free pre­cision that was close to perfec­tion. We were among the first to rely on over­sized, super-stable power supplies and all-digital motor con­trol­lers. But Jona­than Valin’s medial accolade – ‘…the Acoustic Signa­ture Iinvictus stands at the top.’ (The Absolute Sound 08/2016) – spurred us on: resting on our laurels is out of the question.
The founda­tion stone for the NEO series was laid!

While the renow­ned indus­trial designer Burk­hard Schlee (Schlee Design) was ‘getting to the heart’ of the look of our turn­tables, we put all cons­truc­tive and mate­rial details to the test – even our own core techno­logies. A team of profes­sional musi­cians and sound engi­neers evalu­ated the sonic aspect of all new develop­ments. This allowed us to find out if we were on the right track.

If a new techno­logy could not con­vince all ears, it was revi­sed or comple­tely discar­ded. The plan­ning on the dra­wing board, CAD designs, lab experi­ments, assembly work and finally liste­ning toge­ther resul­ted in new axis and bearing mate­rials for our tone­arms, optimized CLD alloys for our chassis, even better power supplies, control­lers and ground­brea­king inno­vations: our highly effective AVC (Anti Vibra­tion Control) techno­logy and the ultra-precise Dura Turn® Diamond Bearing (DTD®).

The develop­ment of the NEO series was time-consu­ming and costly but it also brought us to the next level – an enjoy­ment of sound now fully reflec­ted in the design of our new turn­tables and tone­arms Indeed, we are proud to annou­nce the Acoustic Signa­ture NEO series as a redefi­nition of future sound – a future that doesn’t just take you close, but pulls you right into the center of music.

Passion, care and atten­tion to detail are of great impor­tance to Acoustic Signa­ture. Each product is indivi­dually manu­fac­tured and tested. Our high level of quality is also expres­sed in the Acoustic Signa­ture warranty: We provide a five-year warranty on tone­arms and a 15-year warranty on turn­tables (upon regis­tration and valid for pro­ducts with pro­duc­tion date after October 2020)!

Handmade in Germany

5 year warranty

15 year warranty

Gunther Frohn­hoefer is con­vin­ced: »We are abso­lutely focusing on ‘Made in Germany’. The general trend is towards the chea­pest supplier. This is not for us. We obtain all raw mate­rials and compo­nents that we do not manu­fac­ture our­sel­ves from spe­cia­list compa­nies in the region. We only chose the best suppliers! For our demand for perfec­tion and our quality require­ments this has always been impor­tant and will become even more signi­fi­cant in the future.«
