In the world of high end electronics, there’s a tendency to focus on the latest and greatest.  Blu-ray players, streaming audio, 9.2 channel surround sound and 4K resolution televisions hog the spotlight and classic media gets left in the lurch.  That is, until a company like Bergmann Audio announces their new $20,000 airbearing turntable.


The Sindre turntable features an 8.8 pound acrylic platter that literally floats on a thin film of air, eliminating surface friction.  The platter is centered by a steel spindle in low friction polymer housing.Bergmann states that the supply of air to the turntable is noiseless and reduces bearing noise to an absolute minimum.  The airbearing technology also creates incredibly stable speeds, which helps to eliminate any imperfections in sound.

The tonearm on Bergmann’s Sindre is also based on this airbearing technology.  Consisting of a fixed air pipe with small vents, the pipe is able to float on a nearly frictionless film of air.  The arm tube is made of carbon fiber and fits around this floating pipe.  The tonearm’s only connection to the turntable itself is through the stylus tip and the attached wire. Vinyl enthusiasts have a chance to sample the Sindre at CES, though it is now available from authorized Bergmann Audio dealers.
