AVIDHIFI at the little audio company,

The AVIDHIFI DIVA SP turntable may look identical to its baby brother DIVA II, but the sonic differences are easily appreciated. The DIVA SP steals the DSP controlled power supply to the Volvere turntable, which provides a great step up in itself. It also comes with a heavier platter. As with all AVID turntables, the DIVA SP shares the same bearing as the the company's flagship ACUTUS turntable, and is somewhat responsible for their turntables sounding as good as they do. It also shares the same unique vibration dissipating clamp design, channelling unwanted vibration away from the record via the centre spindle, lowering the noise floor quite noticeably.

The sure-footed 'arrowhead' plinth is made from a solid billet of hefty aluminium, providing an extremely stable base for the deck to work on, maintaining a low centre of gravity, and as well as the three isolating feet, the DIVA SP uses a dual sorbothane layers to dissipate unwanted vibrations.

The bearing housing houses an inverted bearing arrangement - a sapphire tipped spindle rotates on a tungsten-carbide ball, with no friction, noise, or wear. As this contact point has no lateral movement, the platter does not wobble or suffer from rumble noise. The spindle is tapered to eliminate standing waves.

The external 24v power supply feeds the AC synchronous motor, housed in its own independent 5kg housing. This motor housing is also separate to the turntable in order to avoid any potential vibration reaching the rest of the deck.

The solid 6.3kg aluminium platter provides greater inertia, offering more accurate speed, greatly improving sound quality. The cork mat provides a damped layer between the record and platter.

AVID turntables provide an SME fit for tonearms, with adaptors available to fit other types, so any arm can be adapted to fit. AVIDHIFI's own arms and cartridges have been designed as perfect companions to extract the most out of your AVID deck. 

Any AVIDHIFI turntables purchased from the little audio company will attract a healthy part exchange value if traded in against other AVID decks, as would any tonearm upgrades.
