The set includes:
Turntable with equipment
The air pressure (0.040MPa) is needed for the turntable to work properly. This pressure is easily produced by a silent compressor, which is an inseparable part of the turntable.
The way the arm is operated on the air cushion is quite simple. Thanks to the pressure from the compressor, the arm bearing is able to detach and levitate in the air along the guide. In this design, the pressure to the arm bearing is supplied through tiny holes in the guide.
The active length of this arm is up to 200mm, which positively influenced its sound. This arm is able to cope with the crooked plates with which the VTA changes.
Precise execution of the arm elements allowed the use of very low air pressure which reduced the compressor’s noise to zero.
The attachment of the arm guide on two sides reduced the possible resonance to zero. Thanks to the wide range of calibration options, the arm can support most of the MM / MC cartridges available on the market.
A silent DC motor (12V) was used to drive the disc. The motor next to the acrylic plate realizes the drive with two thin silicone straps.
The plate bearing consists of a sleeve made of bronze and a high-gloss polished axis. Both of these elements work in an oil bath.
However, the entire weight of the plate rests on two neodymium magnets. A magnetic cushion made by two magnets lifts the plate to reduce the friction in the bearing as well as eliminate resonance entering the plate.
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. As a standard, a high-quality power supply unit located in the compressor is attached to the turntable. This allowed the compressor to be controlled from the desktop on the turntable.
