Ultimate Performance • Ultimate Refinement • Ultimate Luxury
Every vinyl
enthusiast has records in their collection, or come across LPs they’d love to
own, but were just too warped for any cartridge/arm to track. The DF-2 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 And Listening
Warps are bad news no matter how
you look at it. 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 storage design.
Improved film heating technology optimizes the entire heating and cooling cycle
for a perfectly flat LP that your cartridge – and you – will love! Just lay the
DF-2 flat, open and place the LP on the guides, close and tap a single button!
An LCD keeps you informed of progress with a tone sounding when done.

The
DF-2 is an upgraded version of the original DFV-1.

After a session with the DFV-1, it was flat”

Flattener effective for banishing warps from LPs”

“…The Furutech DFV-1 performed exactly as
advertised and I can say that I wouldn‘t change a thing about it”

Potis, 6moons October 2007

“…The DFV-1 flattened any warped LP I threw
at, no matter the weight or warping, and did so without damaging the LP in any
way I could see or hear”
