THE FUTURE IN ANALOG PLAYBACK
The Helix 2 is engineered to deliver unparalleled performance in analog playback. It raises the benchmarks for noise reduction and preservation of signals due to its unique Micro Signal Architecture (MSA) design.
The complex chassis design of the Helix 2 incorporates technological innovations to eliminate cloudiness and time signature smear inherent in a turntable’s basic design premise.
This fresh approach addresses each aspect of noise and vibration suppression using the latest in visualization techniques, engineering concepts, and patented technologies.
Other innovations achieved by the Helix 2 design team include:
Schroder CB TONEARM
Historically mechanical crossovers have been well documented in loudspeaker design for decades. Experienced designers such as Dr Plamen Ivanov Valtchev in Europe have published numerous papers (AES, patents, etc.) on advanced mechanical speaker structures and designs.
Here is a summary of one successful implementation.
Coupling the cone of the speaker to a voice coil bobbin through a compliant section and directly attaching a small lightweight whizzer cone allows the compliant section to serve as a compliant filter!
The main cone is not vibrated at higher frequencies as whizzer cone responds to all frequencies, however due to its smaller size; it limits the output at higher frequencies, thereby implementing a "mechanical crossover function".
From this method we learn the shape and weight of the components influence the acoustic behavior under vibration. Therefore, selection of materials and the suspension elements utilized actually determine the crossover frequencies and their effectiveness! This is not necessarily a good approach for a tonearm, even disregarding the complexity of integration needed to achieve our high fidelity goal.
