In just a few years, Kronos Audio Products has become a leader in the turntable world. The Kronos Sparta turntable is on permanent demonstration at The AudioWorks
Kronos has won over 35 awards and “Best of Shows” from the international press along with glowing reviews from the world’s best audio journalists. How can we explain this success?
To put it simply, we aim at building turntables that are truly musical and faithful to the recorded material. To this we add the best performance/price ratio in the marketplace. Finally we strive at building products that are easy to maintain and are built to last.
The first thing that distinguishes a Kronos turntable is its two equal mass platters, rotating opposite each other. We call this the dual platter counter-rotating revolution. It is a means by which the vibration inducing torque force, present in suspended turntables is eliminated. The result of this design is a suspended platform particularly well isolated from environmental and mechanical noise while maintaining unequalled stability. You can immediately hear the difference dynamic stabilization makes. No other turntable can offer its advantages.
As Greg Weaver said, in his The Absolute Sound review:
Honestly, once seeing and understanding it, as forthright and fundamentally simple as the idea is, it seems almost shocking that someone didn’t think of and apply this principle sooner. It is a game-changer. After living with my Redpoint Model D for seven years, and having steadfastly held off all other comers in its price range and above, I have traded in my Redpoint and now own the Kronos Sparta and Helena tonearm as my reference analog system. And I’ve never before been treated to vinyl playback from any system I’ve owned that is as clearly and profoundly moving as what I am now hearing.
