Our Story

  

Stable 33.33 is a start-up company based in Gatineau Qc. Canada. After over 15 years of making products for his friends and himself, machinist expert and designer Sylvain Pichette decided to present his creations at the Montreal Audio Fest which was huge success, the rest is history!


The expertise acquired over the years allows the manufacturer to offer vinyl lovers some of the most beautiful apparatus to enhance a listener's experience.


The designer's first project to create was a highly innovative turntable, which made its first appearance in 2005 in the magazine «Québec Audio & Vidéo» volume 12, number 3.

Then in 2009, Sylvain officially presented his creation at the Salon Son & Image of Montreal to an audiophile audience; the response was overwhelming.


An exhibitor even offered him to participate in an A-B comparative performance test in front of an audience composed of audiophiles and audio industry experts; the incredible response confirmed Sylvain's desire to market his creations.

The time to build a family arrived, nonetheless Sylvain continued to refine his products gradually evolving from his first 30-pound turntable to a much more massive 97-pound version.


This latest creation was presented at the 2018 Montreal Audiofest as an exhibitor with Naim and Martin Logan.

Throughout the three consecutive days of the Show, the Stable 33.33’s exhibition room was filled to capacity. The number of questions asked by the audience was so large that the demonstration was not optimally delivered yet still very successful due to the overwhelming interest in development of this turntable.


It was at this event that Sylvain first exhibited under the name ‘‘Stable 33.33” and surprisingly, the people who entered the room said quite naturally, «hey! This is the Stable», looking at Sylvain’s turntable.

  

The Stable was therefore born, so named by the public.

The interest aroused by the record stabilizer weight that Sylvain had manufactured for his own needs prompted him to launch a production line for this object that he named the SP-Contact in honour of the first contact with this project, which was the 2002 record stabilizer weight, Titanium version.

Following the success of the stabilizer weight launching, Sylvain decided to market another product created for his own needs, the Vinyl Transit Platter.


Used for 8 years by Sylvain, this object, which has become indispensable for his needs, has been received with great success by Canadian retailers.


The global launch took place at the 2018 Toronto Audiofest

Sylvain is kind enough to share his passion with customers and Stable 33.33 was one of the exhibitors at the Montreal Audiofest as part of the Classica music festival in St-Lambert. It was surrounded by real music lovers and by a heat wave that this wonderful weekend allowed us to grasp the scope of the brand's deployment by discussing with people who are following the evolution of Stable 33.33 and with whom we loved to talk.

Toronto 2018 Audiofest

In October 2018, Sylvain launched his brand new product, Transit Platter, at the Toronto Audiofest.


This event was a good opportunity for Sylvain to meet new audiophiles and introduce Stable 33.33 to another province of Canada.


At the same time, it was a great opportunity for Sylvain’s family to participate in an audiofest.

Montreal 2019 Audiofest

Stable 33.2 was introduced to the product line by being presented for the first time to the public at the 2019 Montreal AudiFest.


The Stable 33.2 platter, with its twelve stainless steel weights, drew the attention of the people who went to Sylvain for further information.


Once in front of this brand new creation, Sylvain presented them the main option of this project:


A motorized and remotely controlled tonearm lifter like pause-play. A beautiful innovation that can win people’s hearts.

So, with a history dating back to 2002 and especially the fact that some important parts such as the spindle of the Stable wich has been running regularly for more than 17 years without any degradation, we are able to affirm that we offer a


top-quality product.
