A.J. Conti of Basis Audio

The Work of Art is an extremely difficult to build and low production product.

It became a repeated occurrence at Basis that after shipping a Work of Art the Basis team would enter into a type of “musical withdrawal”, with no product bringing the magic of the Work of Art.

After a time A.J. Conti realized that he kept repeating two statements: “What will we do after shipping this Work of Art we are listening to” and “It is a shame that more music lovers in the world will not get to enjoy such musical satisfaction in their home”.

It became an obsession for A.J. Conti to design a product that would allow a greater number of music lovers to enjoy a glimpse of that satisfaction from a much more accessible turntable. The result of this obsession is the Inspiration, truly inspired by the Basis Work of Art.

BASIS AUDIO 2200
Basis 2200 Basis 2200 with collibratorbase
The 2200 Signature represents an all new Basis model, placed between the 2001 and 2500 in our lineup. The 2200 incorporates an innovative adaptation of the Basis fluid damped suspension of the Debut model. By incorporating the suspension under the turntable platform Basis has been able to reduce the size of the subchassis, gaining an advantageous “thickness-to-length ratio” for improved resonant behavior.

BASIS AUDIO DEBUT
Basis Debut Basis Debut
The Debut turntable is the result of the same “Basis Systems Approach” of product development as other Basis products, where each individual subsystem contributing to the performance of the product is identified. Specific goals for the performance of each subsystem are developed based on the function of that system. Each system is designed, based on fundamental principles of physics, and then tested and optimized to perform its function to the highest level. Only after each system has demonstrated superior performance at its defined function is it approved for use in the final product.

BASIS AUDIO WORK OF ART
Basis Debut Basis Work of ART
The Basis Work of Art turntable is Basis Audio’s tribute to the science and art of vinyl music reproduction, an expression of the pinnacle of record playback. The Work of Art project began in the early 1990’s, 10 years into the life of Basis Audio. In 1999 the Vector prototype, the first Basis tonearm, was able to more clearly show turntable and phono cartridge differences than ever before, and inspired new interest in the Work of Art project at Basis. The unflappable neutrality of the Vector allowed more informative listening sessions and measurement procedures to be conducted. After full testing and realizing the breakthrough performance of the Vector, Armando Conti, founder and President of Basis Audio, challenged and dedicated himself to build a turntable platform worthy of the Vector. Basis Audio introduced The Work of Art turntable, Basis Audio’s statement of the ultimate turntable and arguably the finest record player ever produced, at Winter CES of January 2004.
