Learn About Audio Keeper's First Acrylic Turntable ICE1

In the world of vinyl, retro charm meets modern technology, and Audio Keeper’s first acrylic turntable, ICE1, is an example of this perfect fusion. This article will deeply explore the product parameter performance, special functional features, sound quality performance, suitable music types and suitable people for playing ICE1, taking you into the intersection of music and technology.

1. Product Parameter Performance of ICE1

ICE1 is designed with attention to detail to provide an outstanding music experience. Here are some eye-catching product parameters:

1.1 Turntable Material

ICE1 is made of high-end acrylic material, which is not only sturdy and durable, but also has excellent sound transmission characteristics. This material excels at reducing resonance and vibration, ensuring the clarity and accuracy of your music.

1.2 Drive System

ICE1 uses a DC motor to provide a stable turntable speed, ensuring that the record rotates at a constant speed, thereby maintaining the stability of the sound quality. 

ICE1 uses a Belt Drive System, a carefully designed turntable drive method that helps provide excellent sound quality and music experience. The heart of this system is a rubber or silicone belt that connects the motor to the turntable, transferring the power from the motor to the turntable.

The advantage of a belt drive system is that it effectively reduces the transmission of mechanical noise and vibration. Specifically, here are some of the key features of the belt drive system used in the ICE1:

  • Reduce vibration: The belt acts as an intermediary to reduce the vibration generated by the motor when it is running and is transmitted to the turntable, ensuring smooth rotation of the record and clear sound quality.
  • Low Noise Output: Belt drive systems are generally quieter in operation, reducing the impact of motor noise and allowing you to focus more on the music itself.
  • Sound quality accuracy: The belt drive system provides a stable rotation speed, ensuring the accuracy and stability of the music, so that every note can be truly restored.
  • Extended Record Life: By reducing friction and wear, the belt drive system helps extend the life of your records, protecting your valuable vinyl collection.

In short, the belt drive system adopted by ICE1 not only provides you with excellent sound quality, but also creates a peaceful music time for you, allowing you to better appreciate the musical beauty of vinyl records. This system embodies a strong focus on sound quality and user experience, making the ICE1 ideal for audiophiles and music lovers.

In order to provide users with more flexibility in music playback, in addition to the two-speed selection button, it is also equipped with a speed adjustment button. This feature increases the versatility of the ICE1, making it more adaptable to different types of vinyl records and music needs. Here are some advantages of this feature:

  • Sound Quality Fidelity: The rotation speed of different record types has a significant impact on sound quality. By adjusting the speed, you can ensure that the pitch and sound quality of your music are accurately restored without any pitch changes.
  • Music style selection: Different music styles may require different spin speeds, for example, pop music may be more suitable for 33 1/3 RPM, while a single or EP may require 45 RPM. The ICE1's speed adjustment feature enables you to make appropriate choices based on the type of music you are playing.
