TechDAS | Digital Analog Supremacy
Designed and Built in Japan
All TechDAS products are made in Japan with superb craftsmanship that elevates the enjoyment of music to an art-form.
“TechDAS push back the boundaries of design again with the Airforce V Premium, successfully preserving all “Air Force” technologies in our most affordable model of the line.
The Air Force turntables feature unique and refined “air” technologies which includes our air bearing that allows the platter to flow on a very thin layer of air and mechanically isolates the rotating platter and a record from any vibration, as well as vacuum hold down of an LP onto the platter. With these technologies, the Air Force turntables have distinguished themselves from conventional turntables in terms of sound and performance.
At TechDAS we believe that the analog sound we produce has gone beyond previous levels of signal to noise ratios and is more in line with the signal to noise ratios achieved in modern digital audio. Thus TechDAS “Air Force” technologies bring about the ultimate state-of-the art analog sound, with an unparalleled level of background blackness and precise rotation.”
Building on the success of a hugely popular model – the Air Force III, a turntable which has a compact sized chassis yet delivers very high performance and flexibility of installation. The new Air Force III Premium has integrated further new concepts for an even higher quality while retaining the same compact size.
The Air Force III Premium consists of two units: the Main Unit (including outboard motor) and the Pump / Power Supply / Air Condenser Unit. ”
Incredible music is the outcome generated from air vibration, where the hearts of people are moved and immersed in the sound. In the case of analog recording and its playback a very high-precision system was created. Waveforms containing this analogue data are imprinted in a microgroove which is then extracted as vibrations to be then reproduced in a music system. In this process the turntable is a crucial element to allow a cartridge to accomplish it’s role of picking up the music imprinted in the records. Due to its extreme sensitive to micro-vibration a careful approach is thus required to ensure any displeasing and unwanted vibrations are systematically and thoroughly eliminated at source.”
In parallel to TechDAS’s development and releases of the Air Force One, a project was going on at TechDAS to bring the dream of the ultimate reference turntable to reality. The goal of the project was to develop a truly groundbreaking product, building on their expertise and knowledge and incorporating new ideas and insights. To achieve this goal, the project had to be cost-no-object. And it had to have whatever technologies would be best suited for sonic performance.
