The mission

… was to enhance the technical base of the Woodpecker to push forward the sound quality. Running two tonearms was a requirement but we also implemented some new ideas on the drive. We refined the controller software to drive two motors simultaneously in a kind of master-slave configuration.

Putting the two motors in a 180° position around the bearing cancels out all reactive forces that could cause gyration of the platter. As a free add-on we achieve a better randomization of wow & flutter less disturbing the hearing process and lower bearing rumble at the same time.

The sound

… sovereign, dynamic, powerful and neutral at the same time. No matter which tonearm you are planning to use. Relax and take a trip into the fascination of music knowing that not even the smallest detail on the black gold is being kept back.

Forget about technical details, enjoy the music in all its grace!
