The turntable’s size allows even 12 inch tonearms to be mounted and covered with its massive acrylic dust cover on spring hinges . The dust cover is constructed not to pick up any vibration from loud music.
The turntable is assembled from various solid parts of aluminium making the construction rigid and absorbing vibration. On the outer sides of the main structure are solid aluminium plates, which give the turntable mass and further increase structural rigidity and damping.
The covered spikes within the legs allow horizontal levelling of the whole turntable.
The top aluminium plate under the platter, has an elastically under hung main frame and motor system below which is insulated from the outer main turntable’s structure via four big elastic dampers, allowing for fine horizontal levelling of the platter and tonearm.
The platter is constructed from two pieces of 30mm thick aluminium with an acrylic damping plate sandwiched between making a very inert support for records.
The bearing has an inverted shaft with a ruby ball which gives precise, low noise rotation to a supporting subplatter.
The main frame carrying the main bearing and massive aluminium armboard, is bolted together from solid aluminium blocks forming a unique damped rigid support.
The motor system: The DC motor itself is specially mounted inside a brass cup and aluminium plate. This motor assembly is encapsulated and suspended inside a massive brass motor housing. Thus the main frame is doubly insulated from the motor system and yet still maintains rigidity, allowing for max torque momentum to be transmitted via the stiff plastic belt to the subplatter. This gives the platter a high torque drive with the positive properties of belt and idler drives, while minimising the negatives one.
The external power supply controls the DC motor with precise frequency and it has very fine speed adjustments. The control panel on the front plate of the turntable has start/stop and speed change functions. The full speed of platter on 33 rpm is reached in just 2 seconds- in one full rotation of the platter. There is also a remote control start/stop function.
