F6, Funk’s new pickup arm. The unconventional bearing means the whole arm assembly hangs swing-like from two co-polymer threads (well, we want to be exact) which is then stabilized from below.
Such an arrangement avoids the issue of conventional friction and whereby bias is simply adjusted from the support at the top.
 
The simple detachable mounting block makes cartridge changing easier than fighting on a fixed headshell system
 
 
Funk Firm Flamenca / F6 —it excels at the highs and mids, and portrays music within a surprisingly focused and deep soundstage. Despite its slightly elevated surface noise, the ’table suffers little with vibration issues, and is a sleek design that won’t kill your budget. We can always dream of the ultra-high-end turntables, but for those of us on a Camaro budget the Funk Firm Flamenca will give your system that much needed performance boost— and for a lot less than a supercharger  - The Absolute Sound May 20014
 
The new entry level turntable from The Funk Firm has arrived! Already the recipient of a Five-Globe “Outstanding” review in HiFi World
 
In order to deliver on a promise of a seductive performance it should come as no surprise that Flamenca is no conventional, cut corners basic offering.
 
With 2-speeds, Flamenca has an all-new motor and circuit and Funk’s new F6 arm.
 
An obvious distinguishing feature is the cord that drives the platter. The use of a very thin filament (a mere .15mm in diameter) has been borrowed from high-end turntable design and together with the high quality delivers an unexpectedly high level of technical excellence in terms of musical stability.
 
The glass platter is clearly a critical component and has to be machined to very tight tolerances; married with the precision bearing it forms a single part which is the heart of the turntable.
