The Avid Acutus is of an advance belt drive, sprung sub-chassis design . Vibration caused by the stylus during playback is transmitted to the sub-chassis directly through the unique single point and not absorbed into the platter. This is achieved using a bespoke matting material and clamping system. External vibrations are isolated by a unique variable frequency suspension system, adjustable from above.

The turntable bearing is unique because its point of contact does not move laterally. This is because it is held captive in a specially shaped sapphire jewel. Due to its inverted design, only use a single bush is used to prevent rocking, rather than the usual two or full sleeve. Both these features reduce bearing noise. A purpose designed power supply, incorporating DSP signal generation allows for accurate speed settings. This coupled to a hand-made custom motor which is 10 times more powerful than those normally used. This drives a massive 10Kg platter via a twin belt drive system, making for excellent speed stability and sonic excellence.
