Cosmos Eclipse

$11,000 base price

The SOTA Cosmos is the ultimate suspension turntable. The Cosmos shares its platter and suspension system with the Nova and Sapphire but differs from the Nova and Sapphire in its sub-chassis, featuring an entire sub-chassis of 1” aircraft-grade aluminum. The result of this is a very musical turntable with clean, realistic highs, musical mids, and clear, defined lows.

SOTA’s beloved high-performance turntable option now benefits from an entirely new electronics system. New for 2024, the Cosmos will come standard with the series VII Eclipse electronics package, giving truly state of the art speed control thanks to the innovative technology of Phoenix Engineering. Class A amplifiers are now used on the PSU providing a more quiet delivery while the tachometer is built into the same board as the PSU allowing for less connections and one screen to deliver all the data. Improved buttons allow for improved feel over the past versions.

The use of the 3-phase motor in this package, combined with the mounting of the motor to the cabinet instead of the sub-chassis, as well as noise floor improvements from the new mag-lev platter assembly, yields a new Cosmos that is significantly quieter than older models.

The Condor is housed in a separate Aluminum enclosure that will need 10” X 10” X 3.” (length, width, height) and weighs 2lbs 9 oz. The single LCD screen now shows both the condor & roadrunner data on the display and has class A amplifiers inside that generate a cleaner signal to improve the sound quality.

The Cosmos Eclipse is available with and without vacuum hold-down systems.

Custom wood options include, but are not limited to African Rosewood, Mahogany, Figured Maple, and Italian Ebony.

The Cosmos comes standard with dust cover, tonearm board, and wood of choice. We offer Origin Live Tonearms, Hana, Grado, Ortofon cartridges and many other options. Call to discuss what tonearm and cartridge setup are best for your Sota Turntable.

 

SOTA turntables have a lifetime trade-in value, your investment in SOTA will never become outdated or obsolete. In twenty years you may want the new SOTA and you can trade in your old model.
