The Funk Firm
The brain behind these developments was a physicist, Arthur Khoubesserian who in 2005 founded The Funk Firm. Its mission statement was clear and unequivocal: “To get the most from the tiny groove containing musical information”. You might have thought with so many ideas, it was all a done deal but reference to the master tape shows this is not the case and fresh new ideas are needed as much now as before.
Note we said “The Master Tape” and not “Digital”. With Pink as the backdrop then, isn’t this something for which Funk is uniquely capable?
In support of that, here already are some examples. 2005 Funk moved on from the acrylic and launched Achromat. A universal Mat of a new material and construction, which, incredibly improved on Pink Triangle’s original acrylic platter. It seems counter-intuitive but Achromat easily improves turntables costing £40,000+.
No wonder that Achromat is now the best selling mat in the world,
2006 A three-pulley belt drive system called Vector drive – it Vectors the drive force around the platter, thereby providing superior support to platter rotation, and is the ideal support for the conventional, downward pointing bearing, especially when correctly positioned – Yes, even here there is an optimisation process.
2010, Funk moved into cartridge supports, otherwise known as “The Arm”, where Funk has introduced a genuinely new arm tube construction. Arm resonances had plagued arms, quite literally for a century. Called F.X this new development has revolutionised the way resonances are now being reduced to vanishing. It is already regarded as a giant killer and development of this new technology is ongoing.

In order to work properly cartridges need a rigid support.

For the past 100 years, however, the arms that have carried them have been anything but rigid. In 2010, Funk started an R&D program to solve this.

The result was Funk’s unique F•X Cross-Beam system (pat pend).

Rigid & low-Q, F•X has earned a giant killing reputation, which is well deserved.

Here’s how one dealer has described it:

” … I have had a most enjoyable weekend delving into the latest box from the 10,000 LP haul that I brought back from the storage unit recently thanks to the incredible sound, or lack thereof, of the new (FX3) arm. I have to say I am enjoying the best phono sound I have ever owned, reminiscent of the Eminent Technologies SLT without all the silliness of air pumps and all. Another breakthrough!” Critical Dealer

FX3 is a “from the ground up design” & is the next generation of this technology.

  • Funk’s F•X beam: Very low “Q” with very low self-colouration has less effect on the cartridge. The sound is characterised with speed, layering finesse and fine resolution. Above all reproduction enjoys an uncommon naturalness.
  • ABEC 7 bearings.
  • High linearity falling-weight bias for optimal tracking and extended stylus life.
  • Straightforward Azimuth adjustment.
  • In line with the stylus the Lo-slung counterweight gives a sleek stylish design.
  • Calibrated, sliding weight for tracking force produces a variable mass design – 9-13g eff mass. Increases with tracking weight: Matches MM and MC cartridges.
  • Cabling – high purity copper (standard). Other options available.
