Silencer & CLD technology

The 335 mm wide platter of the Invictus Jr. NEO is made of 50 mm thick alu­minum alloy with brass inserts. It is equipped with 24 silencer modules on the inside and 32 on the out­side to elimi­nate vibra­tions highly effectively.

The highest level of our Auto­matic Vibra­tion Control – AVC Level 3 – as well as six fully isolated AC motors and a triple-belt driven sub-platter form the basis for the unri­valed perfor­mance of the Invictus NEO!

Invictus NEO & TA-9000 NEO review in The Absolute Sound 06/2023

“Lest you forget, it was the Invictus that inspi­red my first use of that word, ‘complete.’ […] I’ve never heard an analog source hold its grip and preserve a note’s shape and timing in the bass and treble as faith­fully. […] This is the most complete, most neutral, most lifelike, most musical turn­table / tone­arm I have heard in my system. […] The Invictus NEO and TA-9000 NEO are not only new and impro­ved; they are, in my expe­rience, unmat­ched.”

the absolute sound Editor’s Choice Award 2023

“This incre­dibly massive […] objet du son from Gunther Frohn­hoefer of Germany is not only the biggest, heaviest, and most imper­tur­bable record player JV has ever come across, it is also the simp­lest to use […] and […] the best-soun­ding. Unbe­lie­vably quiet in play­back, its SLM-cons­tructed tone­arm tracks with the pre­cision of a cutter­head, repro­ducing instru­ments with out­stan­ding dimen­sionality, solidity, color, detail, power, pace — all those good things — and tur­ning the sound­stage into a veri­table diorama of a symphony orchestra, a string quartet, a jazz quintet, or a rock trio.”
