Sale List

Kronos Sparta Turntable c/w Helena Tonearm (ex demonstration)

One of the world of audio’s reference turntables. The two platter design removes it (and its even more expensive big brother) from the realms of the ordinary turntable hierarchy. The small turntables sound agile, big turntables sound powerful dichotomy simply disappears, and you are left with analogue musicality of the highest order.

Stereophile say:

However, now that I’ve had the Sparta on hand for some months, and have had time to really get to appreciate its remarkable contributions, I have been supremely impressed. Not to minimize any of the other optimizations and enhancements that Louis Desjardin has integrated into the Kronos ’tables—the high-performance motors, the precise bearings, the compound composite construction of both the plinths and platters, and the patented suspension system—but I believe that it is the implementation of the dual-platter, contra-rotational concept that has the most substantive effect in the Kronos design, and as such, is the single most significant development in turntable design in decades.

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.

  1. Dear, is the Nagra Melody fitted with the phono stage? If not: can it be added? What does the optional separate power supply cost?

    Please advise, patrick

  2. Hi

    Can you tell me if the Albarry AP11 preamplifier your are advertising is still for sale?

    I have two Albarry1008 monobloks and understand the AP11 is a brilliant preamp that is made to compliment them exactly.

    That said, I want to dispense with my Rega phonstage and use the MM input that is included and has again got great reviews. My current preamp is part of a Meridian 208 CD/Control amp that I understand still be used and driven by a separate preamplifier as the Albarry..

    I am using Apogee Stage speakers and the sound from the Albarrys is lovely.

    Could you also let me know if the Preamplier can be auditioned in store, or better still in my home?
    I look forward to hearing from you and visiting you shop that is local to me in Cheshire

    Kind Regards

    Will Woods
