Under conventional circumstances, mounting the turntable, amplifier and loudspeaker together in the same cabinet is a definite no-no. Fortunately, the Andover-One E system is anything but conventional. A trio of technologies overcomes the limitations of typical all-in-one systems. Our IsoGroove® technology, Class D amplifier and 270° loudspeaker array combine to deliver soul-satisfying, room-filling music reproduction.
Loudspeakers work by producing vibration. The business end of a turntable works by detecting vibration. So under normal circumstances, placing your turntable together with a loudspeaker is a recipe for a miserable distortion called “acoustic feedback.” Andover’s patent-pending IsoGroove technology protects your turntable from vibration – and protects your music from feedback. Independent audio critics who rarely agree on anything have declared the technology “lived up to its billing” and “works as advertised” and called it “so amazing” and “genius.”
Class D bi-amplification
Most power amplifiers generate substantial heat along with the wattage. So it’s difficult to fit a high-end turntable, a powerful amp and a capable stereo loudspeaker into a single, compact enclosure. But that’s what we accomplished. Our Class D amplifier is remarkably cool and compact while delivering a room-shaking, house-filling 160 watts total RMS. We even provide separate amplifiers for bass (50 watts x2) and treble (30 watts x2). As featured in ultra-high-end audio systems, this “bi-amplification” helps reduce distortion – even when the music is at its loudest.
The right connections, including Bluetooth audio
Ready for anything, the Andover-One E system connects to music from a wide range of Bluetooth devices across a choice of advanced formats: SBC, AAC, aptX, aptXHD, and aptX low-latency. Feel free to plug in an external CD player, USB source, a subwoofer and an external audio system. We offer optical and coaxial digital inputs as well as analog line input. And you can rip vinyl records to your computer, using the USB interface as an output. As an added touch, when you connect an Andover Audio Songbird streamer to the Stream/Aux 2 input, the system will automatically switch on when you’re streaming and switch off when you’re done.
Turntable hand-made in Europe
Your precious vinyl records have the potential for great sound. The Andover-One E turntable brings that sound to life. It starts under the surface, where an electrically-stabilized AC-synchronous motor, drive belt and high-mass steel platter ensure ultra-stable rotation. Your records are traced accurately by a light-tracking Ortofon OM 5e cartridge, mounted to a highly rigid aluminum tonearm with precision bearings. It’s just what you’d expect of a turntable made in Europe by Pro-Ject.
Building your system
While the Andover-One E system satisfies your hunger for great music all by itself, you can elevate your experience with a matching Upper Stand and Lower Stand or Subwoofer. Beautiful as well as functional, the stands feature an understated real walnut finish instead of faux walnut vinyl wrap. And they showcase a complete music system in less than two square feet of floor space.
