Vibration is the enemy of turntable playback. The folks at Andover Audio have made a business out of components that work well with turntables, including the highly rated SpinBase loudspeaker system, and one of our favorite affordable network streamers; the Andover Songbird. The one glaring thing about the SpinBase turntable loudspeaker system is its bass response. Its bass response could use some extra help. Enter the brand new Andover Audio SpinSub Subwoofer which is designed to complete the playback circle.
Building on its highly acclaimed “Spin” product system, and created in response to customer feedback, Andover Audio introduces SpinSub: a 100-watt subwoofer designed to pair with the award-winning SpinBase Turntable Speaker System.
The SpinSub connects to SpinBase via its subwoofer output, and extends its low-end bass range — making the pairing a compact, full-range listening solution. SpinSub also pairs seamlessly with traditional audio systems (e.g. bookshelf speakers) equipped with a compatible sub output.
The Andover Audio SpinSub Subwoofer is designed around Andover’s patent pending IsoGroove technology, which reduces unnecessary vibrations to eliminate acoustic feedback. This enables SpinSub to be placed near a turntable, or even directly on a SpinStand (where it fits perfectly), without issue.
The SpinSub features a pair of 6.5-inch, long-excursion woofers whose cones push more air and are more efficient than a traditional 8-inch woofer. These woofers deliver extended bass
response with precise control and impact, down to 32Hz. SpinSub also incorporates
adjustable frequency and level controls to compensate for room acoustics and placement, or to match to other audio systems.
The Andover Audio SpinSub Subwoofer is wrapped with premium black or white fabric that perfectly complements SpinBase and/or the SpinStand record stand, which are also offered in black or white. The subtle elegance of the Spin product system looks great in any room, with sound to match.
