    AVID Acutus DARK

    Just ordered myself one of these. The Kronos is about to get some stiff competition!

    New AVID arms (and cart) coming soon! http://www.avidhifi.com/soon.htm

    Ordered it with the dual arm board.

    I plan on mounting the Transfiguration Proteus Diamond and the Miyajima Zero Mono.

    The Acutus dark is sweet, but I do also love the one with the chrome!
    The suspension system Avid uses is a great design that they also incorporate in other models.

    I auditioned the Acutus at some point. A great table.

    They are not still available. The maker died. I was lucky to get my hands on a couple before he passed.

    This is beautiful! Is there a dealer in New Jersey where I could demo one?
