The SOTA Cosmos has long been a familiar name in the vinyl world, and enjoys a loyal following to this day. The Cosmos shares its platter and suspension system with the Nova and Sapphire, but differs from them in its sub-chassis, featuring an entire sub-chassis of 1" aircraft-grade aluminum. The result of this is a very musical turntable with crisp, realistic highs, musical mids, and clear, defined lows.
SOTA's beloved high-performance turntable option now benefits from an entirely new electronics system. New for 2019, the Cosmos will come standard with the Total Eclipse electronics package, giving truly state of the art speed control thanks to the innovative technology of Phoenix Engineering.
The use of the new 3-phase motor in this package, combined with the mounting of the motor to the cabinet instead of the sub-chassis, as well as noise floor improvements from the new mag-lev platter assembly, yields a new Cosmos that is significantly quieter than older models.
The Cosmos Eclipse is available with and without vacuum hold-down systems.
Custom wood options include, but are not limited to African Rosewood, Mahogany, Figured Maple, and Italian Ebony.
SOTA turntables have a lifetime trade-in value, your investment in SOTA will never become outdated or obsolete. In twenty years you may want the new SOTA and you can trade in your old model.
