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.
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 wide range of calibration options, the arm can support most of the MM / MC cartridges available on the market..
A silent DC motor (12V) and two plates were used to drive the disc. The motor located next to the bottom acrylic plate realizes the drive with two thin silicone straps. The rotations of this plate are transferred to the target plate using a small magnet. The magnets repel and set the plate on which we put the disc.
The plate bearing levitates on the air cushion which reduces possible resonance to zero. The entire target plate levitates about 1mm in the air. The bearing is made with high precision to create an air film between the two elements.
The turntable can play discs recorded at 33 and 45 r.p.m. To change the speed and to adjust the disc’s rotation, use the control panel located on the back of the turntable. 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.
