About the Designer:

 TechDAS and Micro Seiki Turntable Designer Hideaki Nishikawa
The Air Force turntables are highly acclaimed for their innovative design ideas, unique construction and core “air” technologies, all developed to accomplish our goal of realizing ideal analog reproduction. To attain the ideal analog reproduction we tried to approach it in the same way a lacquer disc is produced.

The process of manufacturing an LP record is critical to the sound. When the lathe carves a groove into a lacquer disc, the disc is held down onto the platter using a vacuum. This reduces wow and flutter, any degradation of sound quality, and also increases the signal to noise ratio, thus avoiding anything that may have a negative effect when creating a very high quality master.

Then the engineer lowers the pickup into the groove in the lacquer disc and listens to ensure the groove is properly cut. This lacquer will be the master to produce the vinyl records.

To re-enact the same status in record playback, all the models of the Air Force series feature a vacuum LP hold-down. Our goal for the Air Force Series is to precisely extract and reproduce all information embedded in the groove, with nothing added or sacrificed.
