Note Funk's "Vectoring" three-pulley configuration which delivers stability and authority to the drive.
Do others agree with us?...
The reviews have started to come out and one by one they are all saying the same thing.
HiFi World have given it an unequivocal five globes:
“Throughout my listening I felt involved in the music rather then just listening to it, which is surely the whole point..”
Technically is was described as:
“…a belt drive turntable of unusual stability that will have a rock steady tone and an arm that is well damped and vibrationally inert”.
These comments are supported by measurements, which when compared with oh, so many others, show a pedigree that really is unusual.
In Germany, the world’s largest analogue market, two premier magazines have each heaped praise on this new comer to the market.
Other reviews are on the way and we will update accordingly.
Living with it…
“Little Super Deck's” styling brief was to evoke not only a timeless quality but also one capable of gracing many different settings.
Already it has been described as “21st century retro”.
It appears we succeeded.
Are your surroundings minimalist? “Ice white” is the perfect complement.
Lush, traditional furniture? Enhance it with our solid American Walnut Trim.
The deep black “Jet” finish highlights crisp lines.
Those who are more adventurous have not been left out either; special finish options (to order) are available in a variety of colours.
Turn the switch; an understated responsive soft glow appears from the control plate, adding a serene air of luxury.
At 7kg there is a fair bit of heft when it come to picking it up.
A 415 x 320 mm footprint means that it really is about as “Little” as they come. Good things and small packages come to mind.
Ongoing enjoyment is the aim and Little Super Deck’s appeal doesn’t suddenly end.
Our ethos is to help your new acquisition grow with your aspiration and pocket; Little Super Deck is fully upgradable. Here’s how:
The first and easiest upgrade is to replace the felt mat by our now world famous 3mm Achromat…In offering that, one can see immediately that we are true to our core values and haven’t thrown the baby out with the bath water. For this new product, Achromats is available in a variety of colours to help you personalise your purchase. See your dealer. Of course these are also available as an upgrade for other turntables as well.
Problem with your electricity? No problem. A fully regulated and junk rejecting power supply replaces the wall plug to help remove background hash.
Solid decks are currently “de rigueur” but there is no getting away from the fact that a well designed isolation platform does remove low level feedback and junk that insidiously messes up your musical enjoyment. Funk’s Kinetic Kradle (out summer 2013) is the solution to solve that problem and free up your soundstage.
Finally you want the best arm possible? Funk’s technologically unique range is ever increasing and your upgrade path there will take you as far as you want to go.
