Product Brand : Furutech
Product Name : DF-2 LP Flattener
Product Genre :
Condition : NEW

Furutech's new DF-2 flattens warped LPs, including no-bead 180gm vinyl. Every vinyl enthusiast has records in their collection or has come across LPs they’d love to own, but were just too warped for any cartridge/arm to track. The DF-2 can be the one-stop, one-button solution to your problems. The DF-2 provides controlled-heat perfect flattening for all your warped records, even those with only slight irregularities just enough to unsettle your cartridge and cause mistracking.

Warps are bad news no matter how you look at them. If the arm/cartridge remains parallel to the LP’s surface as with a flat record, VTA (Vertical Tracking Angle) remains unchanged throughout every rotation. Additionally, as the arm/cartridge tracks a warp on its upside, it places greater pressure on the stylus which changes VTF (Vertical Tracking Force) until the peak of the warp, whereupon the cartridge becomes “unloaded” with too little VTF on the way down.

Of course, all this muddles the sound, changing the tonal quality, imaging and soundstage characteristics of the cartridge. A flat record also tracks better with less distortion. The DF-2 doesn’t take up much room with its space-saving, vertical design. Improved film heating technology optimizes the entire heating and cooling cycle for a perfectly flat LP that your cartridge.

The DF-2 is more versatile than ever: It stores vertically, operates horizontally, and now flattens 180gm beadless LPs. As the DFV-1, it’s a model of simplicity to use. Place on a level, stable surface, power it, and then unlock both transport latches. Opening the top of the clamshell heating plates, simply place the LP on the center spindle. Close gently, power up the unit, and tap a single button! An LCD display keeps you informed of progress, taking between 1.5 and 2.5 hours total, a tone signaling when done.
