The top-of-the-line model for the TechDAS Air Force turntable series with new integrated concepts and technologies further refining the sound, user-friendliness and external finish.
The Air Force One Premium analog turntable by TechDAS ushers in exquisite design concept to positively exploit the aerodynamic force equivalent to sound energy rather than springs or buffer materials. It is the ultimate mechanism based on a vibration damping design using “Air Force” and utilizes only high-precision finished parts with enough mass to completely avoid any “colour” to the sound, nothing is added or removed.
Through the aerodynamic instrumentality of “Air Force” the real magnitude and essence of ultimate analog playback is now a reality. Adverse effects caused by various obstructive oscillations, which used to be the arch-nemesis of analog turntables, have been thoroughly wiped out by the Air Force.
INTEGRATED CONCEPTS & TECHNOLOGIES
The top-of-the-line model for TechDAS Air Force Turntable series has new integrated concepts and technologies refining the sound, user-friendliness and external finish. Air Force One Premium consists of three units: main unit (including motor), power supply / pump unit and air condenser / air charger unit.
Two models available:
Air Force One Premium with A7075 Upper Platter
Air Force One Premium with Titanium Upper Platter
Air Force” has three design concepts: Air bearing / Disc suction / Air suspension. It is important for a turntable to achieve accurate and noise free stable rotation, which requires a platter with significant mass. Without compensation, over time this necessarily heavy-weight platter can cause deterioration in the bearings surfaces and cause friction vibrations or degradation of rotation accuracies.
ADVANCED AIR SUSPENSION SYSTEM
TechDAS uses an advanced air suspension system with adjustment through continuous monitoring of air suspension level and air charger unit.
One of the major features of the original Air Force One is full air suspension, which requires occasional air input with the provided manual pump. The Premium features automatic and continuous monitoring of the air suspension level and the color of the indicator will change if air charge is required.
The Premium is also equipped with an exclusive motor pump for air charging. It automatically stops air filling when the appropriate amount of air has been charged, omitting troublesome labor for the user.
Double capacity air condenser allows even smoother air flow and more dynamic sound.
The air condenser serves an important function and achieves consistent air bearing for the platter and vacuum hold-down of an LP. While the air condenser for the original Air Force One has a more than adequate version, as a result of pursuing improved sound quality, TechDAS has discovered that increasing the capacity will produce a more dynamic sound.
Therefore, the Premium has a double capacitance air condenser over the original model. This has elevated the sound to new heights in every respect including background blackness and dynamics.
Through a calibrated microcomputer adjustment circuit combined with a heavyweight platter, the turntable achieves a very high rotation accuracy beyond the boundaries of conventional belt-driven products and equivalent to that of a direct drive (DD) motor.
Refined main chassis aesthetics
The main chassis of the Premium employs a gloss finish which is achieved by surface polishing a black layer of aluminum. This deep gloss finish adds to the charm of the appearance.
Option of Titanium or Gloss Finished Super Duralumin (A7075) Upper Platter
For the upper platter of Premium, there are two options: Super Duralumin A7075 and Titanium. Please specify which option you prefer when ordering.
Tapered Spindle and Disc Stabilizer
Air Force One Premium features a tapered spindle to absorb any swaying of an off center LP. A disc stabilizer comes with the turntable as a standard accessory that will fit perfectly in with the spindle.
