This turntable makes use of traditional frame design which was established by the famous turntable manufacturers of the 50’s and 60’s. It uses a compact simple and elegant form factor. The Classic incorporates a combination of approved belt drive design using a low noise AC motor with an ultra precision frequency DC-driven AC generator for ultimate speed stability. Advanced technology is used for decoupling and the completely new designed tonearm
- Belt drive with electronic speed control 33/45 rpm
- Height adjustable decoupling feet
- Precision balanced TPE*-damped aluminium-platter / felt mat
- Metal/MDF sandwich chassis floating on TPE* suspension
- 9” carbon/aluminium tonearm with MM & MC capability
- Japanese ball bearing (base of tonearm)
- Integrated central vertical cable outlet for unhindered arm movement
- Ultra low friction Zircon pin-point cardan bearings (top & side)
- Azimuth and VTA fully adjustable
- TPE damped counterweight
- Optionally available with 2M Silver phono cartridge
CHASSIS & SUBCHASSIS
Like our famous Debut we wanted to create an easy to use “plug & play” product, but with better sound due to better isolation. Thanks to the modern damping materials TPE* (Thermo Plastic Elastomers) we are able to design a very effective, subchassis construction. Isolating the platter and tonearm from the resonances of the motor and main plinth is the target.
PLATTER & SUB-PLATTER
The main difference to the Debut bearing are the tolerances which are by factor 10 lower and therefore more precise (0,005%). Especially the subplatter is a very sophisticated part which is accurately machined and guarantees a very good isolation between bearing noise and the platter itself.
NEW CARBON/ALUMINIUM TONEARM
The radical new designed Classic Tonearm is the result of 25 years of experience in mechanical construction.
The tonearm tube is made out of a sandwich of Carbon and Aluminium: Carbon for stiffness and speed, Alu for better damping. The Cardan bearing assembly with pin-point Zircon bearing provides ultra low friction. A new expensive Japanese base-ballbearing allows a better lead of the tonearm wire and increases the free movement of the arm.
The counterweight incorporates a TPE* damper which allows us to reduce the amplitude of the tonearm cartridge resonance frequency by 50%.
As we did not want to risk that the customer always needs perfect audiophile turntable supports, we decided to use damping feet which are a very good compromise to suit most of customer environments. For sure these feet are height adjustable.
