As 2013 comes to an end, what a busy year it has been.
HiFi World’s “Best Turntable” Award
Little Super Deck
Xmas appears to have come early.
We invite enquiries from
in new territories.
Please visit out distributors section as there are many new additions and changes to help you find Funk in your own markets.
Funk has been busy.
First is Flamenca
A new £850 baby with new F6 arm.
This is available separately at £370
This is a first early look.
Departures from convention are obvious:
Flamenca is peripherally belt driven, so where’s the belt?
- Typical of Funk?
The new arm is called F6. It looks cute but there is more to it...
1200 now sports a totally new platter technology called Strata.
Briefly, Strata is thin in section, weighty, rigid and very dead.
1200’s performance is enhanced more than ever.
Also developed is a new sapphire bearing for Techie.
Called Strata, check it out in our Technics section.
Evolved on the back of our ongoing development program,
Vector and Saffire see significant upgrades.
Both now have new Strata based platters.
The platter’s extra weight is supported by re-designed new bearings.
New electronics deal with the altered inertia.
The result of all this work?
Whilst retaining Funk’s legendary ethereal quality,
both now have more Gravitas, grunt but it is very clean.
This site is under ongoing construction.
Little Super Deck
Welcome to The Funk Firm
From day one, above all else Funk has set its store by being true to where it all started “High Fidelity”. It should therefore come as no surprise then that Funk only releases product after considerable effort designing and developing, testing, changing and ultimately listening.
As such and to date, this has resulted in every product carrying our name always being received to critical acclaim.
A case in point is Saffire and FXR, not only individually but also in combination:
2012: Denver’s now famous Audiofest.
There, in a setting of some 200 rooms, systems costing upwards of $400,000 vied for reviewers’ attention and acclaim.
Our room, quite modest by comparison, was reviewed thus:
“...this was the first and only room to sound lifelike”
With our internal standards set high, could any greater praise ever be offered?
Still, we recognised that to many of you out there, even Saffire is beyond reach. So it was then that Denver was chosen to formally release our latest creation, Little Super Deck.
Little Super Deck is unquestionably modestly priced but the fact remains that it has been the subject of a considerable R&D program to bring Funk’s standards to the more budget conscious end of the market.
Achieving this, we discovered, was no easy feat but we are now delighted.
What would the rest of the world think about our new addition?
It has already reviewed very highly in two, premier German magazines.
We’ve had to wait till April 2013 for its first UK review in HiFi World.
Rather then start with our best foot forward, always the easy option, how about we go to the conclusion, to the “Against”s where you will find this simple comment:
“None at this price”
So, what is left? If you guessed: “Quite a few positives” you’d be right.
More remarkable, we would add, are the technical measurements, which are exemplary at any price but then come to be seen as nothing short of staggering at the asking price.
These go a long way to explaining just why the turntable is making friends so quickly and underpinning quite why Little Super Deck is so good.

Our Goal is faultless Transcription.
Records are cut from an original tape Master.
This is the absolute reference to which we defer when evaluating our product.
No other manufacturer mentions this.
