“But it only takes a few minutes of hearing it to know that the Flamenca is blessed with what makes the Funk brand so unique…you’ll be rewarded with an open window into the music”. 5 stars
Review of the Funk Firm Flamenca in Absolute Sound
Review in Hi-Fi Choice
Flamenca’s two-speed design is deceptive. Apparently simple, delivering its award winning and seductive performance comes not from any conventional, cut corner, basic offering but by Funk’s usual “outside-of-the-box” creative flair.
Its all-new DC motor and circuit provides a clean drive for the precision-ground glass platter. A contrasting white drive cord makes a striking visual statement.
The F6 arm is a unique take on the unconventional. Stable and frictionless, it pivots on threads providing performance enhancing features usually found only in more expensive arms.
- Azimuth adjustment for accurate setup
- A simple detachable mounting block makes cartridge change easier than fighting a fixed headshell system.
- Bias is adjusted from the support at the top.
“Out of the box”, we balanced Flamenca’s performance as pure Funk. The rest followed.
