Our aim in developing the Raven One
was to be able to offer our customers a compact turntable whilst
simultaneously making available the technology and build quality of
the universally acclaimed Raven AC to a more competitive price
bracket. We have now succeeded in that aim. The innovative
development as well as the tried and tested materials used in the
Raven AC are of course also used in the Raven One too. These
circumstances lead to an effective, easy to use and reliable layout.
The newly-developed Raven GT is not
simply there to fill the gap between our base model the Raven One
and the classic Raven AC. It incorporates knowledge and experience
that we have made over the years. The primary aim was to be able to
offer a compact turntable which could run two tonearms without any
sonic compromise for a reasonable price.
We have taken the exceptional properties
of copper, and in conjunction with our special polymer we have developed
a compound platter. The musical reproduction benefits from breathtaking
soundstaging and stereo depth, the representation of the instruments
gains substance. The whole sound characteristic becomes clearer and more
relaxed. Platter drive is via a maintenance-free belt.
presented the Raven and Falcon turntables for the first time over
ten years ago. At the time, only five Falcons were ever built, each
one representing a unique build. The advantage that the Raven, in
contrast to the Falcon, could accept anything up to four tonearms
was so compelling that we decided to develop only the original Raven
to its current form the Raven AC, and not to pursue the more
basic-shaped Falcon further.
the experience gained over the last few years stood us in good stead
for developing the Black Night, yet despite drawing on these
experiences, the Black Night also incorporates many innovative
features not seen before in this form. The Raven Black Night is a
truly monumental turntable, as its sheer size and weight testify.
Despite this, thanks to the proportions, colour and choice of
materials, the design remains pleasing and harmonious.
years now TW Acustic has been making a lasting impression on the
turntable market. With our first model – the original Raven – perfect
build quality became the standard. Not only that, back then we broke new
ground and were the first manufacturer to use a custom-developed
synthetic compound based on Delrin. Due to its perfect damping
properties, it is almost impossible nowadays to think of a better choice
of material than this for modern turntable construction. Also, the use
of high-torque motors and sophisticated controllers allowed us to set a
new benchmark. Thanks to our developments, music-lovers worldwide are
able to indulge their audiophile passions with full satisfaction, and to
enjoy their fascination with turntables on an impressive level.
