ECCO

15 years of experience in designing turntables - Made in Germany

since 15 years Acoustic Signature is developing and producing turntables and sell them to music lovers all over the world.

Special to this Anniversary we decisded to develop a entry level turntable to make it easier to own a turntable of Acoustic Signature.

 

 

Exclusivity does not depend on the price!

 

The ECCO! turntable is manufactured using a soft grinded paint finish, something you would expect on a high end speaker system rather than an entry level turntable. The solid wooden MDF plinth carries the substantial high mass turntable platter bearing housing and tone arm mounting plate. The turntable motor unit is remotely sited, close to the plinth, and is the same motor as is used in our high end turntables, powered from our S-Alpha regenerative power supply unit.

 

•The turntable platter is solid machined aluminium, 24mm thick and weighing 4.3kg. The platter is made of a very soft alloy to optimize its periodic resonance, and is coated on the rear side with resonance-reducing material. Existing vibration energy is quickly reduced and the Platter is immediately steadied. The design is optimised to ensure both air borne and operating vibration energy is damped and, to present the best operating conditions for your arm and cartridge and offer you the best sound from your vinyl collection.

 

•The platter bearing is the heart of every turntable and Acoustic Signature have invented a bearing with the ideal performance characteristics of exact fit, extremely low noise, very low friction and long term stability. The platter bearing component is manufactured from special hardened and polished steel. The bearing housing uses perfectly matched sinter bronze inserts which are self-lubricating; and therefore maintenance free. At the base of the bearing, we use our specially developed ‘high-tech’ material TIDORFOLON. All bearings in Acoustic Signature turntables are designed to run dry - without oil. 

 

•The ECCO! turntable can be specified and delivered with any production Rega tone arm, like the RB 251 or RB 301; or supplied with a tone arm mounting plate to suit any other 9 inch arm. These arm plates are exchangeable if you decide to change your arm. The plinth has three adjustable feet for simple macro and micro adjustments to level the turntable. The Manfred MK2 is available in real wood maple and cherry, or piano black or white high gloss paint finishes to special order. The Manfred Mk2 uses design concepts incorporated throughout the Acoustic Signature turntable range: such as a high mass platter design, very low bearing noise and friction, perfect motor drive control, and highest precision German design and engineering. This guarantees long term reliability and high performance; it ensures that every Manfred MK2 is exactly the same, as we produce nearly every part on our precision computer controlled machines.
