ATMO SFERA Platterless Turntable

Many refer to the rebirth of records as the “vinyl revival.” And dutifully so. Since 2009, the sale of vinyl records has grown an eye-opening 260 percent. It’s a trend that’s repurposing old school means of listening to music with new school flair. From vinyl quality to the turntables themselves, this isn’t your parents record collection anymore. At least, that’s the thought process for Italy-based Audio Deve with their platterless turntable project.

The ATMO SFERA deviates significantly from the traditional record player. In fact, it skips the record-sized platter entirely with only a weighted strew-on cap keeping the record in place. Also, the vibrations of each record’s deep grooves are felt by player’s carbon fiber tone arm, pre-fit with an Audio Technica AT 95 E MM cartridge. The secret is in the air. That is, without a platter absorbing energy from the album, the days of buzzing muddiness in the sound quality are over. Funds are still being appropriated for the project but this looks to be an exciting time for audiophiles everywhere. [Purchase]
