To celebrate the addition of AVIDHIFI to their North American distribution network, the audiophile-acclaimed company Focal Naim has announced that it will distribute a lineup of high-end turntables that will have options ranging for entry-level consumers to the most passionate of enthusiasts.

“Focal Naim North America is proud to distribute AVIDHIFI with its exceptional build quality and outstanding sonic performance,” he said. 

AVIDHIFI is well known for their luxury turntables, which place an emphasis not only on optimal sound quality, but also upscale design. Currently, there are five turntable bundles which plan to be distributed by Focal Naim North America. 

Each of the bundles will include the turntable itself, a tone arm, and a cartridge. Some of the bundles will have multiple options for different tone arms and cartridges, which will affect the price of the bundle.

The first of these is the Ingenium Plug and Play, which is their entry-level option. The base version, which comes in black, is priced at $1,999. There is also the option to get the Ingenium Plug and Play with the metal platter, which brings the cost to $2,699. 

The player is designed not only to be simple to set up, but to deliver audiophile engineered quality free of unwanted vibrations. Both Ingenium Plug and Play Turntables are equipped with a TA-1 tonearm and CA-1 Cartridge, and are pre-mounted and pre-adjusted to be easily played out of the box.

Next up is a more premium option for those looking to elevate their vinyl experience, the DIVA II SP. The DIVA II SP is specially designed with a heavy aluminum platter and a vibration absorbing screw-down clamp to reduce and eliminate background noise to vanishing levels. 

Priced at $9,999, the player promises stability with its twin belt drive, and precision control of its speed using its digital signal processing engine to reduce variations in electrical supply. These details result in higher fidelity sound across the board, improving bass and treble for a smoother, more dynamic sound.

The newest generation of Volvere promises precise calibration of the speed of the motor, utilizing the latest external DSP signal-generating power supply, which reduces any unexpected change in signal. 

This not only gives you more control, but ensures a pitch perfect and very clear sound. The Volvere utilizes the Altus tonearm and Ionic cartridge, is available in black or silver, and clocks in at a price of $12,999.
