Walker Audio Announces Release of All-New Proscenium Black Diamond III Turntable

Unprecedented Sound Quality Is the Result of a New Isolated Air Supply, Coupling Material and Lower Air Pressure

AUDUBON, PA--(Marketwire - Jul 18, 2011) - Walker Audio, Inc., one of the world's leading manufacturers of high-end audio products, announces the release of their next generation of elite turntables, the Proscenium Black Diamond III. The new turntable features a modified suspension system that significantly improves the audio quality by adding a separate, isolated air supply that uses lower air pressure in the suspension chambers. New coupling material was also added to isolate the air chambers from the equipment rack.

"We actually had no intention of upgrading or changing the Proscenium Black Diamond II turntable," said Lloyd Walker, President and Founder of Walker Audio. "That unit is already considered one of the best in the world and we thought we had achieved the pinnacle of analog playback possibilities. We were wrong. The changes to the air pressure and the new coupling material result in a musical presentation that is truly phenomenal."

The company, known for its dedication to continuous improvement, began experimenting with ways to use lower pressure to extend the life of the air chamber pods. They found this adjustment profoundly improved the audio quality.

The result is the engineering masterpiece known as the Proscenium Black Diamond III, which utilizes the perfect pressure for isolation, rigidity and resonance control. And the changes still achieve their original intention of extending the life of the air chamber pods indefinitely.

"When it comes to high fidelity audio, I'm pretty hard to please," said Dennis Pitzer, President of the Philadelphia Area Audiophile Group. "Analog playback is my choice over digital for the ultimate sound and I thought the medium's potential had been fully realized with Walker's previous turntable. To describe the new Proscenium Black Diamond III as evolutionary would be a gross understatement. It is a revolution in audio analog reproduction! Walker Audio has created a game-changing product."

The Proscenium Black Diamond III turntable is a state-of-the-art all air-bearing, linear tracking turntable that is hand-built to exacting specifications. Walker Audio has earned more than 80 industry awards for its audio and video components and accessories.
