Music and highend sound reproduction, has had my attention/interest, since my childhood.
As a teenager, I bought my first audio system- Micro Seiki table, Rega arm, Ortofon cartridge, NAD pre-/amp and Dali speakers. All hifi magazines, I came across, were read carefully. At that time- in the 80.ties- I became familiar with the airbearing technic. To me it was obvious the most optimal way to build the perfect turntable. I also realized the brands in the 80.ties had some drawbacks- and were problematic and unstable to operate, for the end user.
When I- qua my interest in music and highend audio, and my education as mechanical engineer, began developing the airbearing turntables- tonearms, one of my goals were to eliminate these old drawbacks the airbearing technic were known for.
