Wand 14-4 Master Turntable

The Wand Tonearm writes: “We are proud to announce the formal launch of the Wand 14-4 Master turntable this weekend at SouthWest Audio Fest (Rooms 1422 & 1423). While this is hardly secret as we showed a prototype* in the DeVore room at Munich last year, it has evolved in response to feedback. The Wand 14-4 Master Turntable is a new release and builds on the design of the existing 14-4 turntable by adding the Wand Iso Base unit that enhances the performance of the 14-4 by improving its isolation from vibration and electrical noise. It is also available as a retro-fit unit for existing 14-4 turntables.

Electrical isolation is gained by using a battery supply built into the base (Also separately available as The Wand EV). This can run for a day after an overnight charge. The battery supply also significantly improves the perceived dynamics and resolution

The Isoacoustic® Gaia feet are an added tier of isolation and complimentary to the Zentroidal™ isolation system in the 14-4. As well as a gain in resolution, there is added foot fall isolation. The Gaia feet are located with one at the back and two at the front for ease of levelling.

At the same time the new Series B (Black) 14-4 turntable also gains the Carbon fibre Wand Mat™ and silk finish carbon fibre top deck which further improves resolution and is complimentary to a change in cosmetic finish to black.

*At that point we were calling it the 14-5 due to the added carbon fibre layer in the platter but this is also being added to the 14-4 Series B (to make the upgrade path easy
