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 unwanted 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 are sold separately for the second and subsequent arms.
*Linear-arm AFU1-2 is sold separately.
High-quietness Air Pump
The air pump that floats the platter is a motorized system. It provides vibration-free compressed air for long-term, stable operation. In addition, a double-sealed soundproofing system ensures that it remains quiet enough to be placed in a listening room.
*Air pump POU1 is included.
- An optional air pump POU1 is required for use.
- Product appearance and specifications are subject to change without notice.
- Due to the use of granite, stone patterns and colors may vary depending on the production lot.
