Avid has introduced black versions of its range topping Acutus turntables. Previously available in chrome the Acutus SP and Reference SP have now been released in a ‘lustrous’ black finish. This is apparently in response to demand and a result of technological improvements and bespoke tooling which has given the company the opportunity to produce a black finish that’s of an appropriate standard. The Acutus SP retails for £12,000 while the Acutus Reference SP comes in at £17,000. The new finish will be unveiled at the High End show in Munich on May 9th.
