Kronos developed a wholly new way to attach the chassis to the suspension system, using completely different soft clamping methods. This treats the chassis more like the soundbox of a guitar or a violin because in that case how it’s held dictates to some degree how it sounds.

SCPS-1

When the SCPS entered my audio system, it was to simply supply better dc power to my turntable ‘Titan’. To my amazement, it did more than I could ever anticipate. It replaced a Titan with a new God, one that has so much more ‘power and energy’. It showed me ‘time done right’. It is in every way imaginable superior to the the standard powered Pro. It is the ‘voice of temptation’. It will stay with me.

Like most suspended ’tables, each bearing set for the platters is positioned slightly left of the physical center of the plinth. The Sparta shares the same bearing system as the PRO.

Kronos Pro

The Kronos suspended turntable is the first to employ two platters rotating in opposite directions to achieve a ‘balance’ of forces, eliminating torque induces vibrations.

“The best analogue source turned out to be a turntable with two platters – one spinning the normal way and the other spinning the opposite way.” – from AV2Day.com

Sparta

Unique to behold, the Sparta is essentially two complete turntables—each including a skeletal, metal-framed plinth fabricated of solid aluminum boards with phenolic inserts—one situated immediately above the other. Both hang freely from the same, patented, four-post, pillar suspension system. Occupying a space some 20 inches wide, 14 inches deep, and 11 inches tall, and weighing 70 pounds, the Sparta comes in at less than half the weight of my reference Redpoint Model D, yet with a similar overall footprint.
