During my annual visit at the High End Show in Munich, I always listen as closely as possible to every new Super-Turntable that gets demonstrated to the public. As many of them carry price tags of 200K-500K Euros, it is no surprise that almost all of them sound a lot better than my 7 year old Dohmann Audio Helix One Mk.1. Now, in May 2023, during his attendance at the Munich Show, Mark Doehmann upgraded my Helix One to the current Mk.3 status and I was hoping for a sonic step big enough to significantly lessen my desire for one of those Super-Decks. What I received was the best Turntable I’ve ever heard and in every sonic category I can think of I was shocked! It extracts so much more information, so much more music, from records I thought I knew, it’s unbelievable. Instruments have so much more character, voices sound so much more real, so much more present. The artists musical expression by microscopic variations in their playing is so much clearer now. Even annoyingly bad sounding records are now quite enjoyable, average records now sound like audiophile pressings and the good one’s closer to a live concert than I ever expected to hear in my listening room. I still regularly shake my head in disbelief, whenever I rediscover another record of my collection. And I didn’t have to pay 200K Euros (or more) for it. I didn’t have to buy a new turntable. In fact, I didn’t even have to send my Helix around the Globe and back. This upgrade was the best money I’ve ever spend on my stereo system by far. I cannot thank Mark and his team enough for not only developing and producing this engineering marvel, but for also offering this upgrade to existing customers.
