Nothing quite says rigidity like a slab of stone.
For some good sounding vinyl, you certainly don’t want anything shaking or reverberating to influence the audio playback. Italian manufacturer Thesis Audio has gone to the quarry and released three versions of turntables that feature non-resonating stone plinths, with the upper-level Amalthea getting further isolation treatment with a separate stone subchassis.
Thesis’ other models include the Himalia and Lysithea, and all include sizable synthetic platters and concave surfaces for increased stability and better contact with the record.
The three-point suspension system of the turntables add to the vibration dampening and isolation, and the aluminum alloy support is available with cutouts for any type of tonearm, the company says.
