Dr. Feickert Analogue

… was not simple. From the very beginning it was clear that we want to excel our older products transferring their virtues into a traditional chassis. So we were looking for new ways to reach this goal and get the results we were looking for …

After a lot of refinement we found a way to get correct interaction of only one mass layer with the chassis. At the same time our focus was on „ease of use“ with features like the sliding armbase with pivot-spindle scale. This approach allows you to change tonearms within a couple of minutes and imagine how easy it can be to set up a tonearm this way …

Linear

 

On our enduring research on revealing all details from vinyl records not only mechanical parameters are of importance. Even more, electrical parameters come into focus when having reached a high level of mechanical perfection…

 

technical details

  • linear regulated, low-noise-power supply
  • auto-detection of primary voltage
  • 24 V / 500 mA DC sec.
  • current limitation sec. at 1000 mA
  • prim. over-voltage protection
  • grounding
  • prim. fuse 315 mA at 230V
  • prim. fuse 800 mA at 110V
  • power consumption 35 VA max.

 

 

Protractor

 

We have revised our famous „Universal Protractor“. Besides making handling easier we have enhanced the functionality as well as accuracy. On this Protractor you can find all three well known, major geometries aka Baerwald, Lofgren and Stevenson.

The general geometrical correlation of a tonearm based on a fixed pivot point are well known since the fundamental publications of Baerwald and Lofgren back in the first half of the 20th century. The conclusion of both papers was that such a tracking device must have an angular offset (zenith) with a defined overhang. The offset and the overhang vary with the effective length of the tonearm itself. While tracking the record the stylus matches tangential position in the groove at two points – the inner and outer Null points (linear tracking position). In the early 1960ies another mathematician has calculated a new set of parameters taking into account that on records with classical music very often crescendos occur towards the innermost grooves (Stevenson).
