"I'm a fanatic about quality."
From our perspective the most important design ever from Basis is the SuperArm which is available in either 9" or 12.5" lengths. Compared with other tonearms that we've tried, including Basis' own Vector 4, the SuperArm is a design and sonic quality break-through! It really must be experienced, i.e. heard, to be believed!
Again from our perspective the second most important design advance from Basis is the Super Platter. The sonic upgrade from incorporating this platter technology also has to be heard to be believed!
Another very important technological advance is the Synchro-Wave power supply combined with the Micro-Thin Revolution Precision Ground Belt. The Micro-Thin is is the thinnest most precise turntable belt ever produced by any manufacturer. The result of this combination is a breakthrough in speed stability for belt driven turntables, or for any type of turntable drive for that matter! In addition, the way that Basis has implemented vacuum record hold-down with adjustable low pressure vacuum is a very important refinement, especially so if the vinyl record being played is not absolutely, perfectly flat.
All of these advanced technologies are available with the Work of Art, the Inspiration, and the Transcendence, with the Transcendence being the latest and most advanced design in their line.
[Please note that the Micro-Thin belt is designed to be used solely with the Synchro-Wave. For Basis turntables without the Synchro-Wave the regular Revolution precision ground belt is recommended.]
