Dr. Feickert Analogue Firebird wstecz







The idea

… based on our previous experience with Woodpecker and Blackbird Turntables we have refined our applied concepts. The ability to handle two 12 inch tonearms was one of the principle design parameters along with simplifying the turntable setup and alignment procedures. We also focused on the visual perspective as well with evolutionary refinements in our form factor, fit and finish and presence. From a tonal standpoint the Firebird represents the pinnacle of the DFA product line, it is truly our new reference turntable.


Running on three motors we chose the only geometrical configuration that really makes sense – the equilateral triangle. As we have already shown with the Blackbird, the positive effects of reduced drag force on the bearing is bettered by the triangle configuration as it also stabilizes the bearing/platter assembly by cancelling out all acting forces. All tendencies of gyration are effectively eliminated. Combined with our all new bearing with 80% reduced area of contact - which will also be fitted to the Woodpecker and Blackbird models - we achieve much lower friction causing less rumble and improving the wow & flutter even more …


The sound

… pitch black background paired with pure dynamics, both macro and micro.  Power and stability meets neutrality. Whatever your choice of tonearm/cartridge is – the Firebird will reveal the most you can get out of it opening new horizons for your listening pleasure. 

You will be completely confident that nothing is being held back. Sit back, relax, leave all discussions about the technical aspects behind you and just enjoy the music …

Get involved – more and more …
