The base is made from stainless steel square profiles. Applied design minimized the impact of vibrations from the environment. T-shaped base has three stands with regulation by which we can easily set the level.
Tonearm was made from stainless steel and brass (polished to a high gloss). Arm bearing was suspended in a magnetic field. This solution gave maximum isolation from the rest of the structure and made the bearing’s elements not frictional. The inertia of such an arm is very large.
We overcome the centripetal force which, as we know, occurs with such arms, by adjusting the weight. The mechanism has been designed to precisely adjust the strength of the so-called antiskating. By appropriate regulation we obtain variable strength at the beginning of the plate and its end. In this way, the insert needle works without resistances and distortions regardless the position on the plate. The insert is additionally insulated from the arm with a special handle. The handle was made of two rings connected with a special spring.
A silent DC motor (12V) was used to drive the disc. The engine located under the acrylic plate implements the drive using a thin silicone belt.
The plate bearing consists of a sleeve made of bronze and a high-gloss polished axis. The whole plate is based on two balls immersed in an oil bath. The bearing is made with high precision so that an oil film is created between the two friction elements.
The turntable can play discs recorded at 33 and 45 r.p.m. The control panel located on the side of the turntable serves the purpose of changing the speed as well as correcting the rotation of the disc. An additional advantage is that the turntable motor can be powered from the battery, which reduces the disturbance of the whole system. As a standard, a high quality power supply is attached to the turntable.
