The all-new open-chassis Millennia Non-Vacuum Turntable System is Sota’s latest assault on the State-Of-The-Art in LP playback equipment. Like the critically acclaimed Sota Cosmos, the Millennia utilizes an ultra-rigid, unified sub-assembly utilizing a critically damped one piece sub-chassis, milled from a one inch thick solid aluminum plate. Unlike the Cosmos and previous Sota top-of-the-line turntables models however, the Millennia incorporates a spring-less, hanging four-point balanced-mass visco-elastic suspension system. The multi-layer suspension utilizes a variety of materials including Axidyneâ, a unique energy absorbing visco-elastic polymer, to provide excellent outside energy rejection at critical midrange frequencies.

The Millennia uses Sota’s internally damped, multi-layer 15-pound non-vacuum platter system with the ultra Vinyl Format platter mat. It incorporates Sota’s inverted bearing assembly design, utilizing a polished sapphire thrust plate with zirconium bearing. The Millennia’s synthesized sine-wave drive (with electronic speed control and speed change) 24 pole A/C Stepper Motor drive system is housed in a separate, high-mass stand alone cabinet and is powered by Sota’s Electronic Flywheel power supply. Additional damping has been added to the cabinet as well as adjustable feet for fine tuning.

The Millennia Vacuum Turntable includes the Cosmos Armboard and Reflex Clamp. The Cosmos Armboard is multi layers of acrylic, aluminum and lead in a constrained mode and high polished. The ultimate mechanical clamping system, the Sota Reflex Clamp assures intimate contact between the record and the mat over its entire surface.

"The fact that the Millennia acquitted itself well against products double its price says a lot for its design integrity. I was struck again and again by the excellence and immediacy of the best analog." - Dan Sweeney, The Absolute Sound, April/May 2000

"...a space-age, drop-dead-gorgeous concoction of gloss black naughtiness. Gorgeous to look at, gorgeous to listen to... Sound quality is superb and in terms of sound staging and tonal accuracy it leads the pack. The Reflex Clamp is the best-built, and most effective design I have come across." - Geoff Husband, TNT Audio, France, January 2004

"The SOTAs are the only suspended turntables that are absolutely, unconditionally stable over time, a statement I make from personal experience." - Paul Seydor, The Absolute Sound
