«J. Sikora Standard Max Black turntable sets a standard for how 21st high-end audio should be executed and more importantly, how it should perform. Jan Sikora made an ode to the analog and undoubtedly proven maturity of J.Sikora turntables with its Standard Max Black»

 

Our design goals for this outstanding turntable were: maximum rigidity, minimal resonance, minimal vibrations and the highest achievable level of rotational stability.

We eventually accomplished this with the use of no less than five different and carefully tuned materials forming a sandwich arrangement. Rotational stability is regulated by a very advanced motor control circuit (DC/PAPST) and any remaining irregularities were largely eliminated by the use of two diametrically-opposed motors.

This superb turntable may be used with a wide range of tonearms.

  • Maximum development of the Standard line turntable
  • 2 tonearm armboards
  • Motor controller built into the plinth (like at the Reference line)
