For the three feet on which the Aerolith rests, we have developed a 2-stage, damping system (German Patent 10 2017 109 026). This unique air-based damping and decoupling technology provides efficient elimination of disturbing effects on the turntable. By using “high density” sealing elements, there is virtually no air diffusion. As a result, an air pressure check at annual intervals is all that is required. The patented damping technology in conjunction with the high dead weight of the turntable and the resulting mass inertia guarantee the absolute smoothness of the turntable while maintaining the dynamics and impulse fidelity.

A Story to tell
For 50 years Volker Bohlmeier has worked with almost every high-end turntable that exists or has ever existed. While adjusting and repairing all these turntables he developed an idea how the ideal turntable should be designed. Easy to set up and use. And of the highest precision. As simple and obvious as this sounds, it is rarely found in practice. Together with the design and manufacturing engineer Dipl. Ing. Rainer Holtmann, we have succeeded in achieving this goal. With “The Aerolith”, a number of fine mechanical constructions come together to make this exceptional turntable so special.
