Specifically Designed to Preserve the Delicate Analog Signal and Play Vinyl LPs With Utmost Accuracy: U.S.A.-Made Mobile Fidelity UltraDeck Turntable Offers True-to-the-Source Sound
The literal definition of the prefix "ultra" — extreme, or to an extreme degree — embodies the concept, construction, and performance of the Mobile Fidelity UltraDeck turntable. Dovetailing with the purist-minded philosophy long espoused by the Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab's Sebastopol, California studio, the Stereophile Analog Product of the Year Award-winning and Class B Recommended UltraDeck is devoted to exceptionally quiet, true-to-the-source playback of vinyl LPs without adding any of its own colorations. But it goes even further by taking critical measures to ensure unwanted noises and ruinous vibrations remain kept from the critical stylus/record interface. Proudly made in the U.S.A. at Mobile Fidelity's in-house factory in Michigan, and designed in collaboration between Mobile Fidelity engineers and turntable expert/Spiral Groove founder Allen Perkins, the sturdy 25-pound UltraDeck is a world-class component eminently qualified to reproduce the famous accuracy of Original Master Recordings — as well as faithfully recreate the music on any other LP you play.
Available without a cartridge or with a pre-mounted UltraTracker or MasterTracker cartridge for stellar plug-and-play convenience (select from our drop-down menu above), UltraDeck immediately stands out via its super-sturdy, unshakable physicality that includes a 1.3-inch Delrin platter — 75 percent thicker than that on Mobile Fidelity's StudioDeck model — that delivers deep-black backgrounds and a fantastically low noise floor. Delrin is chosen due to its natural impedance match with vinyl. Speaking of being made for LPs: UltraDeck's 300RPM isolated AC synchronous motor offers excellent speed stability for stellar pitch accuracy and rhythmic drive. Better still, UltraDeck's constrained layer dampening build — comprised of three aluminum plates bonded to the MDF body — adds extra mass, eliminates coloration, and contributes to increased stability. It's just another way UltraDeck takes its purpose to the extreme. Ditto its use of ester-based bearing grease, which lends to the 'table's extreme quiet.
