“The highest-fidelity phonograph on the market has gotten even higher in fidelity…this beautiful, tangential-tracking, air-bearing record player is, with the finest sources, capable of in-the-room-with-you realism…the Walker Black Diamond V is a more sensible option than a reel-to-reel tape machine…the sonic differences between the Walker and the best tape playback are, as noted, minimal.”
Our thanks to Jonathan Valin and the entire staff of The Absolute Sound for this award.
Since this award was given, we have improved the PBD V even more with the new oil-free air supply system. Now users can have the superior sonics of the PDB V turntable without the maintenance and wait for the pressure to build up. The new air supply is totally oilless, super quiet and requires no maintenance. No checking or topping off the oil. No need to remember to turn off the pump. The air supply stays active so that the turntable is always ready to play.
Fully automatic, temperature-controlled and hassle-free, the Proscenium Black Diamond V is everything you could want in a turntable and more than you ever dreamed possible. If you are in the market for a turntable of this caliber, you owe it to yourself to hear this one.
