Air Force III Premium

The new premium model comprises improvements that result in further refining the sound, based on the compact Air Force III

Building on the success of a hugely popular model - theĀ Air Force III, a turntable which has a compact sized chassis yet delivers very high performance and flexibility of installation. The new Air Force III Premium has integrated further new concepts for an even higher quality while retaining the same compact size.

The Air Force III Premium consists of two units: the Main Unit (including outboard motor) and the Pump / Power Supply / Air Condenser Unit.

The weight and sound of an analog turntable have a strong correlation. In order to make a heavier turntable while keeping the chassis size to the original Air Force III, our team chose gunmetal for the platter of this model. This material is an alloy of copper and tin and was often used for audio equipment in the heyday of analog audio.

 

 




New Product: Air Force V Premium

The Air Force V Premium has been developed to deliver another dimension in analog sound, and at the same time be accessible to more analog enthusiasts. The chassis is as compact in size as the Air Force III Premium, and by elaborately reducing motor vibration TechDAS has achieved a successful integration of the motor in the plinth. The result is an even more compact turntable without a separate motor unit that can be fitted with up to four tonearms.

The 2-phase 4-pole AC synchronous motor offers almost the same level of performance as the upper models and is integrated into the main unit with an anti-vibration mechanism optimally designed. The polished drive belt of polyurethane rubber helps achieve a high signal to noise ratio. Furthermore, the chassis with the built-in motor sits on four feet which are based on the air damping approach we have used successfully in the Air Force III.
