High-end audio distributor Absolute Sounds has added two ultra premium turntables from Döhmann Audio to its curated Ten collection of elite Hi-Fi components.

The Helix One is an uncompromising flagship, while the Helix Two incorporates key technologies from its stablemate into a smaller footprint. The Helix One Mk3 sells for £64,998 in black and £78,998 in titanium, while the Helix Two Mk3 is priced at £46,000 in black and £51,500 in titanium.

The Helix One Mk3 and Helix Two Mk3 share the same core technologies, including ‘unprecedented’ resonance control, derived from Mark Döhmann’s experience as an aerospace engineer.

“Vinyl playback involves converting the vibrational energy experienced by a stylus as it moves through the grooves of a vinyl record into an electrical signal," says Döhmann. "The challenge is that there are other forms of vibrational energy (resonance) present in this environment that arise from various sources that are also picked up by the stylus. If you remove as much of that unwanted resonance as possible, you have a purer signal, less distortion… more music!”

Döhmann Audio is utilising solutions used in aerospace, spectrometry, medical imaging and electron microscopy to achieve its performance goals. At the heart of both turntables is a Minus K vibration isolation system utilising NSM (Negative-Stiffness Mechanism) technology. Minus K vibration isolators are used by the European Space Agency and NASA, for applications that include the James Webb Space Telescope.

Both turntables are available in a black anodised-aluminium finish, or a nickel and titanium plated finish.
