While skiing Quandary Peak in Colorado, the idea for Onedof came to NASA engineer Aleks Bakman. He envisioned a perfect bearing: self-centering, non-resonating, friction-free and with zero tolerance. The result of almost a decade of trial and error, the Onedof is a thing of jaw-dropping beauty and sound clarity. It eliminates all resonance thanks to liquid suspension, and its aerospace-grade materials gleam with 24K-gold plating.

WALKER PROSCENIUM BLACK DIAMOND V
The Proscenium turntable has attracted many accolades over the years, and this latest version, the Black Diamond V, does not disappoint. A specially treated, fine-grained crystalline material reduces static buildup and cancels EMI, RFI and microwaves, and it is friction- and resonance-free thanks to the air-bearing arm and platter and adjustable air suspension.We love the black-and-gold design, a delightful nod to the roaring 1920s.
