At 2013 Fonica re-shaped slightly their turntables line. Cheapest F-400 ,which was an answer to Rega Planar like decks had been removed from the offer, and upper decks had been slightly redesigned ,improved or polished into the final market appearance ;] Company decided to enter upper market exclusively, hence all that changes followed.
So F – 600 now remains opening model in an offer and as such is as good as it only can be, being already highly competitive in its price range for money wise and performance.
Also lovely granite build, heavy plinth-ed F- 800 remained in an offer without any visual difference to it’s same named ancestor, but its building standard matured and had been also improved to bring out more from the design. Lovely classic proportions are there to stay hopefully and we are pleased ,as we love its presence very much .
What makes as even more happy however is new evaluated version of F – 800 calledF – 801.Here overall design had been pushed to maximum, expanded with an external motor controlling unit ,as well as finally a new cosmetic treatment had been given to it. So now It is available in three sophisticated finishes giving him even more sophisticated presence:
Standard – Brass;
Gold Edition – every metal part Is covered with 24 carat gold.
And finally Top F – 900 – our designer turntable made by Audio Fonica which is targeted for people who appreciate the best quality of sound as well as the incredible design. It was in previous offer under the codename ” VIOLIN ” which we decided together to keep as his nick name – look at the pictures and try to guess WHY ?
With the base cut to the shape of giant treble clef, beautifully crafted acrylic mirror polished heavy platter and zirconium dioxide bearing it’s visual statement is much like it’s musical nature – giving unforced playback and smooth pleasurable appearance ; ]
