The ACE Space Deck is the latest development of the classic Nottingham Analogue Studio Space Deck.
Never happy to leave improvements unmade yet never wanting to be too showy, the Ace Space and the Space Deck look identical. The differences, though often invisible to the naked eye, are significant. The Ace Space differs from the Space Deck by incorporating a new bearing (based on the Hyperspace bearing), a new arm board and a new motor mount. The Ace Space also uses very different metallurgy in the arm board and the motor mount. Both have been changed from aluminium to lead impregnated steel. With over twice the mass (and better resonance control) these two key platforms offer much more stable support. Everything else remains the same.
Together these improvements bring the Ace Space a long way towards the performance of the Hyperspace!
Nottingham Analogue Ace Spacedeck Turntable Specifications:
- Overall weight: 20Kg / 43lbs
- Bearing: Oil pumping lead bronze
- Dimensions: 457 x 355 x 203 mm

I have had this deck for several years and can say it's fantastic..but having just listened to a friends Pioneer PLX 1000 I'm gutted. Why?
Well , we did a direct comparison at his house. My NAS ace space against his PLX...no comparison right,the ace space should blow it away. Wrong!
The PLX held it's own and in certain situations actually sounded better-rock/blues namely.
The same cart was used ( 2m black),amp,cables and of course speakers.
What a bloomin deck the plx is. I'm not going to swap out my ace space just yet but, hell it got me thinking.
I'd say give the plx a chance if you're on a budget, as it's one of the best dang decks I've heard period. Oh, and forget audio snobs, if the plx can hold it's own against an ace space...well.
I've read a few forum sites and owners are loving it and the snobs/fanboys are panning it (naturally without hearing one).
However, if money isn't as tight you should try this deck..I don't think you'll be disappointed.
