Compactly designed turntable with a flagship concept. The weight of the granite base, the stainless steel platter, and the air floating establish a high level of quietness.
The base is made of 19 kg granite, which has been stabilized over 5 million years. The weight of the base and the vibration damping characteristics of the granite suppresses micro vibrations. It is also equipped with a platter of 17kg stainless steel. This platter is floated and rotated by air. It is supported only by the pressure of the air (only a few hundred grams). Normally, with a single point of support, you’ll hear a dinging sound when you hit the platter, but by damping it with an air film, you’ll get a knotty sound.
Non-servo Motor Drive
The servo noise is eliminated by open control without a servo. The platter is driven by a DC Brush-less motor and thread, and the platter rotates by inertia alone. It uses a unique “XFD system” that provides to the motor a highly accurate voltage with no fluctuations, based on a crystal transmitter.
Expandable with two arms
Attachments for your specified tonearm are included. Linear-arm AFU1-2 and your swing-arm can be used. Two arm configurations are also available by adding attachments. (Up to 3 arms can be installed.)
*Attachments for the second and subsequent arms are sold separately.
*Linear arm AFU1-2 is sold separately.
High-quietness Air Supply
The Air Supplier uses a plunger system. Four cylinders powerfully supply the capacity required by the turntable and linear arm. The double-sealed sound leakage and vibration prevention system keeps the unit quiet enough to be installed in a listening room.
*Air Supply POU2 is sold separately.
