When it comes to hi-fi turntables and speakers, the material they are made of is one of the most crucial factors. Here we take a deep dive into the key materials used to create hi-fi turntables and speakers to show what makes Wavelegend's products so great.

The Material from Which the Turntable is Made

The material from which the turntable is made also has a significant impact on the sound quality. Here are some key material considerations:

Turntable deck: Vinyl records are typically placed on metal or acrylic turntables. Acrylic turntables are popular for their smoothness and anti-static properties, which help reduce noise and improve sound quality.

Bearing: The quality of the bearing of the turntable has an important influence on the smoothness of rotation and sound quality. High-quality bearings reduce vibration and instability, ensuring the record stays stable while playing.

Tonearm: The material and design of the tonearm are critical to the stability of the stylus and the accuracy of the tone. Usually, the tonearm uses aluminum alloy or carbon fiber material to keep light weight and rigidity.

Vibration isolation: In order to reduce the interference of external vibrations on record playback, vibration isolation materials such as rubber or silicone are usually used between the turntable and the speaker.

Materials from Which Speakers are Made

The materials from which a hi-fi system is made have a profound effect on the sound quality. Here are some common audio production materials and how they affect sound quality:

Wood: Wooden speakers are prized for their natural reverberant properties. High-quality hardwoods such as oak, walnut, and beech are often used in cabinet construction because they help produce a warm and lifelike sound. These materials reduce resonance and provide sound with clarity and depth.

Metal: Loudspeaker enclosures and stands are usually made of aluminum alloy or steel, which provide excellent structural stability and help reduce vibration and resonance. However, the sonic characteristics of metal enclosures are colder and require careful design to achieve high-fidelity sound quality.

Plastic: Plastic speakers are often lighter and more economical, but they often don't deliver the same level of sound quality. However, modern high-grade plastic materials can provide good sound quality when properly designed, and allow for greater design flexibility.

Diaphragm material: The diaphragm (or speaker cone) of a loudspeaker is usually made of a polymer material such as polypropylene or polycarbonate. The choice of these materials affects the sensitivity, frequency response and distortion level of the speaker. Internal Baffles: Using a high-quality bulkhead material, such as MDF or fiberglass board, can reduce internal resonances and improve sound clarity and separation.

The Value of High-fidelity Materials

Selecting high-quality construction materials is critical to the manufacture of high-fidelity turntables and speakers. This not only affects the quality of the sound, but also the durability and performance stability of the product.

At Wavelegend, emphasizing the value of using high-fidelity materials is also to convey our commitment to customers: Carefully selected materials combined with outstanding design and craftsmanship to provide excellent audio experience and long-lasting products.
