I'm sure this is a superb piece of engineering. To call it the 'most accurate audio playback device today' however is surely a step too far.
I'm sure you are now expecting me to wade into the ongoing debate regarding the virtues of
hi-res digital music versus vinyl. I could extol the virtues of both vinyl and digital but why stoke the fires of a discussion that's already well ablaze.
My issue with this turntable's accuracy is the use of a fixed pivot tonearm. Record masters are made using a cutter which travels a tangential path across the disc. If you don't adopt the same methodology when reading a disc for sound reproduction then you will inevitably encounter errors.
I bet the Helix sounds incredible but to label it 'most accurate' I believe is inaccurate and just hype.
