Description

The F400
Advanced Automatic Sub-Chassis Turntable

F400
The REKKORD F400 is a fully automatic sub-chassis turntable that is not only convincing in terms of sound but is also a real eye-catcher. The entire automatic system as well as the tonearm and the damped aluminum platter are built on a floating sub-chassis platform which is decoupled from the rest of the chassis. The F400 features a massless tracking force adjustment which optimizes the center of gravity directly at the bearing center. The automatic system is adjusted and fine-tuned by experienced technicians and is based on a highly complex mechanism that has traditionally matured and further developed over decades. The adjusted high-quality Ortofon 2M Red cartridge is mounted on a carbon fiber reinforced headshell which offers the perfect connection to the aluminium tonearm. The 2M Red is an all-purpose cartridge that delivers an open and dynamic sound with a slight touch of warmth. The plinth is made of MDF and is available in 4 different finishes: satin black, high gloss black, and cherry or Makassar real wood veneers. Cables, dust cover, and a single adapter come supplied with the turntable.

Pre-adjusted Ortofon 2M Red cartridge

The 2M Red is a high quality MM cartridge that delivers an open and dynamic sound with a slight touch of warmth.

Fully automatic

The automatic system is completely disengaged while the record is playing. Comfort with unrestricted sound quality.

8,3” weight-balanced tonearm

Ultra low mass (ULM) aluminium tonearm with steel tip-ball bearings from our own production.

Massless tracking force adjustment

Massless tracking force adjustment which optimizes the center of gravity directly at the bearing center.

Damped aluminum platter

The solid aluminium platter has a damping ring on the inside that helps to dampen all resonances and minimizes wow and flutter.

One piece MDF chassis

The main chassis is made out of a single piece of MDF which has an ideal resonance-dampening basic character.

“The decisive factor for the smooth and powerful sound of the Rekkord F400, which can definitely compete with upmarket players of manual-minimalist design, is its tonearm, which goes back directly to the low-mass designs of the 1980s.”

Bernhard Rietschel – Germany, 02.2022

“The complete package makes music royally. After eight bars, we are certain: this is really great!”

Andreas Günther – Germany, 09.2022

The turntable is raised above the main chassis of the unit on a sub-chassis platform. This separates the automatic system (including the arm and damped aluminium platter) away from the main plinth, reducing the potential for noise interference. Given the plinth is made from MDF (picked for its resonance-damping qualities) already, this gives you an idea of how serious Rekkord are with getting things just right.
