avid volvere turntable

AVIDHIFI at the little audio company,

The VOLVERE shares a little more with the flagship ACUTUS than most other AVIDHIFI turntables in that the bearing housing has been derived directly from the flagship - the spindle is press-fitted to the subchassis, improving vibration dissipation. 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, and the VOLVERE uses a suspension system tuned to 3.5Hz in order to repelling most external 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 housing. This motor housing is also separate to the turntable in order to avoid any potential vibration reaching the rest of the deck.

AVID VOLVERE turntable,

The solid 6.7kg aluminium platter is mass loaded around the edge, providing even greater inertia, the result being far more accurate speed and improved 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.

HiFi News review,

"Put simply, the VOLVERE SP combines the sheer fluidity and atmosphere belt-drive decks are so good at, with the solidity and precision a capable direct-drive can deliver so well."
