This is constructed from two plates, each plate being made from a sandwich construction of two 10 mm aluminum plates, separated by an acrylic plate clamped together with pre-stressed, non-magnetic, stainless steel screws. The turntable chassis (top plate) is suspended by large springs submerged in silicone oil, with a low resonance of 2.2 Hz, dampening the springs’ movements. Three aluminum and stainless steel spikes support the main base (bottom plate). Four knobs quickly level the top plate. The silicone suspension reservoirs are automatically sealed when this plate is lifted (for transport).
Two motors in a diamond drive power the sub-platter, which has an inverted bearing with a ruby ball. The ball and sliding ring have their oil bath for lubrication and damping any vibration within the bearing. The platter is also of a clamped sandwich construction to combine the strength of aluminum (rigidity) and acrylic’s damping properties, producing an exceptionally stable and no resonant support for records. The mat and special clamp are made in much the same way as the platter and further serve to control all vibrations. The arm board also employs the sandwich construction design.
