New bfly-audio Octopus turntable record weight system

New bfly-audio Octopus is a completely new developed modular concept. The customer can select the function, clamp or weight, the form of the knob,  the color, and the weight class too. The integrated absorber concept of the Octopus was developed on a completely new basis on the existing experiences. It was made from the ground up considering the vibration of the LP and also the vibrations caused by the motor or the belt of the turntable.

On the bottom side of the Octopus 8, two-layered absorber elements take care of the immobilization of the LP. Layers of birch wood take the vibration of the LP and transport them to overlying gel pads, which eliminates the energy of the disturbing vibrations.

Decoupling of the turntable

The vibrations, coming from the arbor of the turntable, will be reduced by a special plastic of the arbor hole, in combination with a copper module, which is inserted as a plugin into the knob.

In the case of the function “clamp”, the 8 absorber has a special role. With the pressure remaining unevennesses of the LP will be balanced to a certain degree. WIthout absorber other clamps will have remaining “flutter”.

Complex structure

The Octopus consists of 20 elements. The two-layered absorber elements are exactly three-dimensionally measured and matched.

The copper knob and the chassis of copper are coated with a special lacquer for the prevention of oxidation. The logo is a patinated coinage. You could select a silver or a copper coin insert.

The Octopus as the clamp is y very reasonable supplement to our weight for turntable PG1 or PG0
