TechDas Air Force III is the newest member of the Air Force family of turntables and draws heavily from the experience TechDAS gained in building Air Force One and Two. All three Techdas turntables feature air bearing and vacuum hold down technology that contributes in no small way to the super silent background noise performance. Through isolation and damping of extraneous vibrations and...[more]
Platter the core feature of the The Air Force ONE is the uniquely designed platter. It consists of an air-bearing main platter and an upper sub-platter with(optional) vacuum hold-down.
Main Platter: ¨The Main Platter of The Air Force ONE is fabricated of 19kg of non-magnetic SUS316L stainless steel. The material is first forge processed (heat treated) to increase hardne...[more]
-Air bearing and vacuum hold-down techniques, which have been transmitted from Air Force One
-Sits on four feet, employing a newly developed oil damping air suspension system
-Platter weighing 10 kg is machined precisely out of solid aluminum (A5056)
-Chassis frame structure made of aluminum casting (AC4C) achieves maximum intensity and workability. Dual layer str...[more]

The stiffness is important to be a super rigid base for the tonearm/cartridge and bearing/platter as there must be 100 % no moving tolerance between the distance of the groove and the tracking cartridge. All the rumble of the platter / bearing is directed in the TPE columns. On opposite the TPE avoid that any unwanted energie of motor and surface or surrounding vibration leads to the subchassis...[more]
The Caliburn is the uppermost of two models currently available from Continuum. It comes complete with the ultra-rigid Castellon stand – an integral part of its design, made from aircraft-grade aluminium with a magnetically levitated upper shelf. The matching tonearm is Continuum’s top-end Cobra.This is this most technically advanced way of playing back vinyl records yet devised. Conti...[more]
Our choice was to use a jewel pivot as found in the finest of aircraft instruments, which offer the lowest friction possible via mechanical means. Stabilisation is via outrigger pivot, which allows for precise azimuth adjustment. VTA is adjustable on the fly using a 40TPI microscope fine pitch thread vertical adjustment mechanism. Clamping is by a triangulated locking system which avoids the co...[more]
The Copperhead's shape is refined and sleek, maintaining the signature free sound inherent in the Cobra design. The wand is eggshell thin with special contours and compound curves to "shape" the resonant behaviour of the arm, only visible with specialized software tools, but clearly audible to experienced listeners. The Copperhead presents an opportunity for everyone to access the most advanced ar...[more]
Continuum Audio Labs was a relative unknown before January CES 2004 when it quietly launched the Caliburn Cobra system.
The audiophile world was shocked by the advanced performance of this and soon learned that it was a product engineered to play music with higher fidelity than any other system to date. Several orders followed the launch and it was a year later that January CES 2005 ...[more]
