New year 2017 started with full analogue power and glory in Linz, Austria at Sambs Hifi shop. Dr. Chris Feickert himself presented there his 3 turntables Woodpecker, Blackbird and Firebird in two days. These events and workshops take place now in the newly designed second business location of, parallel to the main shop.
Dr. Feickert Analogue turntables enjoy the highest reputation worldwide. The most important US magazine Stereophile and its famous reviewer Michael Fremer rated the top model Firebird in its highest class A, Absolute Sound was enthusiastic about the entry model Woodpecker.
Our setup for the Dr. Feickert Analogue challenge:
Because the weekend was very well attended, Peter Sambs was in a good mood. Analogue sound is back in full glory. The primary interest of all visitors was of course the comparison of the three turntables. Clear results, clear steps up in performance and always for a fair price. Chris attached the whole two days the same tonearm and cartridge to the record players - so an absolute direct comparison.
The first surprise was for all visitors the change to the heavier platter with brass inlays - great tuning for more power and authority. All agreed a Must for every model.
Then the even bigger surprise. We use the Dr. Feickert Analogue CLEAN battery power supply instead of the standard power supply. Now I know what is still missing! And that even though we always used the superior power conditioner from IsoTek - EVO3 Titan and EVO3 Sigma!
So my big tip: The brass inertia platter upgrade is a Must have - order it with your new Feickert turntable. CLEAN with its extreme impact you can order later too - anyway try it before you decide which turntable model.
Chris Feickert as great lector- his expertise and experience was welcomed by many visitors. There is no better chance to talk with the mastermind, very personally and with enough time. gain I say Thank you Chris for coming! And i learned i need an additional battery power supply. :) Big impact!
To proove our good mood - the group photo - great wine selection in Linz, powerful analogue sound, great visitors and big success. Wow, we have to do that again.
