Consonance Wax Engine Turntable

High-end analog audio at a great value

The Consonance Wax Engine is a remarkable new turntable equipped with design features usually reserved for turntables costing several times more.

The Consonance Wax Engine features a stepped stainless steel spindle encapsulating a ceramic ball. This rides on a teflon pad and lives in a brass housing. The relatively short spindle provides a platter with a low centre of gravity and a free and stable rotation. 

The DC motor for the Consonance Wax Engine is a high quality Mabuchi with a patented DC servo supply.

The Consonance Wax Engine tonearm employs a unique "unipivot" hybrid design that features a proprietary, low friction brass bearing in the horizontal mode and "pre-loaded stainless" in the vertical. This design avoids some common unipivot problems that accompany the commonly used "needle" point.  The aluminum arm tube terminates in a low mass headshell with rod-and-rider weight antiskate. Here, too, the design and technology far exceeds what's typically available at this price point. 

The Consonance Wax Engine comes together on an aluminum "T" section chassis with isolation feet.
