J.Sikora began producing and selling turntables in 2007. Our founder, Janusz Sikora, was one of the pillars behind Burdjak & Sikora, producer of superior vacuum-tube amplifiers. Our turntables are produced one at a time; they are addressed to true music lovers and audiophiles who, like us, seek uncompromised analog sources.
What We Do
We are concerned with designing and producing advanced analog turntables. Lovers of great music, enjoyed in our homes and reproduced with ultimate fidelity to the original recording. The J.Sikora brand was built on this foundation—love of music—and the desire to share our own passion with like-minded others.
What We Create
We offer 3 turntable models: Initial, Standard, and Reference. Each model is made of diverse materials of the very highest quality. Together with the finest-quality tonearms, cartridges, and phonostages, our distinctive turntables enable perfect audio playback and the best possible realization of the musical potential hidden in every vinyl record.
The new J.Sikora KV Max Zirconium Series tonearms
J.Sikora is pleased to announce its new, top-of-the-line KV MAX Zirconium Series tonearms in 9- and 12-inch versions. The world premiere will take place on 28th October at the Audio Video Show 2022 in Warsaw (12”) and on 11th November at the Capital Audiofest in Washington, DC (9”).
The KV MAX is the ultimate expression of the world-renowned and award-winning KV12 series of tonearms. As the world's first Kevlar® tonearm, the KV12 has established itself as one of the worlds finest tonearms, receiving many accolades and awards including a Class A rating in the American Stereophile® magazine, a nomination for the International HiFi Press Award for the best tonearm in the world, and the Best Product 2019 award from the Highfidelity.pl magazine.
The J.Sikora KV MAX arms build upon the best aspects of the KV12 arms and take the performance to an even higher level. We have advanced our one-of-kind Kevlar® arm tube design by reducing its weight, while at the same time increasing its stiffness. To further reduce resonances, we created a unique bearing made of zirconium oxide. The new, improved damping guarantees maximum stabilization of the arm with unrivaled tracking.
J.Sikora is famous for its unparalleled application of metals to reduce the resonances in its table. This approach has been extended to the KV MAX tonearms. We have replaced the majority of the aluminum elements of the arm with bronze. This contributes to an increase in stability and a further reduction of resonances at a previously unattainable level.
This uncompromising design is complemented by the use of cables of the highest purity copper covered with 24-carat gold, made especially for J.Sikora.
The 9- and 12-inch KV MAX tonearms represent a new standard in tonearm performance. KV MAX will extract all that your vinyl has to offer and connect you to the emotion of the music as never before.
