American Sound AS-2000


This is a new model made entirely from stainless steel. The base and the platter weight nearly 300kg, the platter is supported with a thin layer of air less than 1/1000 of an inch. The design is bearingless, there’s not connection between the upper platter, spindle and the base, this insures complete isolation of the platter for undisturbed playback.

The logo is Japanese calligraphy for A S, American Sound Turntables

This is a one of the real serious projects on building the absolute turntable for the connoisseurs. I have heard the American Sound and I am pretty sure it will challenge most of the “big tables”, maybe even surpass them…

  1. Eckart,
    All that stainless steel reminds me a little of the Epidauro 930? No? =) I haven’t seen or heard one of these.
    I will be on the look out and see if any Chicago area salons have one for a listen.


  2. Norman,
    I do not know the Epidauro but the machining and drilling is done with excellent tolerances and measurement precision.
    1-3/100 mm – This is in Germany a good standard of turned parts, in the US an A (and especially in the TT-production) – a very good value. I am waiting for the centrality of the platter. Will let you know.
