Manual turntable. Optional with fitted cartridge Ortofon 2M Red
Available finishes. Mahogany or olive veneer and piano-lacquered black
A quiet running AC motor with a two-step pulley drives the platter's outside edge via a belt.
The transparent acrylic plinth stands on three height-adjustable Sorbothaneฎ-damped aluminium cones.
The motor is decoupled from the plinth to reduce vibration transmission.
The resonance-optimised platter is a sandwich construction utilising the hub, a fine-balanced medium density fibre platter weighing 2Kg, a 4mm thick flat-ground layer of vinyl and a screw-down metal record clamp.
The platter's low-tolerance chrome-plated stainless-steel axle runs on a Teflon bearing plate in a sintered bronze bearing housing.
Connection to the phono input of the amplifier can be made with connecting cables of your taste through the gold plated phono sockets and earth screw. A standard cable is provided.
External power supply avoids potential electro-mechanical interference.
As an optional extra, the turntable is supplied with Ortofon 2M Red MM-cartridge fitted.
The headshell and armtube are fashioned from a single piece of carbon-fibre.
Conical armtube avoids standing wave reflections.
Inverted tonearm bearing comprises four hardened stainless tips in ABEC7 spec ballraces.
Rings provide very solid arm bearing housings. The outside ring is open to avoid resonances.
Design of counterweight effectively counteracts unwanted resonances.
The counterweight supplied is suitable for cartridges weighing between 6 - 10g. Alternative counterweights for cartridges weighing between 11 - 15g, 8 - 11g or 5 - 8g are available as an accessory part.
Counterweight shaft lowered to record level reduces cantilever forces and dynamic wow when playing warped records.
Solid armbase permits accurate height adjustment of armtube and VTA (vertical tracing angle).
Single-screw fixing of armtube allows rotation for easy adjustment of needle azimuth despite fixed headshell.
Silicone-damped armlift can be adjusted to suit working height of the arm.
The internal wiring consists of flexible high-purity copper from the headshell right through to the gold-plated phono sockets.
