The plinth is finished with real wood veneers, each unique unit is created individually. The critical components, such as motor, platter and arm are fixed to a 10mm thick aluminium base plate. The heavy top and base plates are connected to minimise vibration.
The heavy platter, weighing 2.7kg, is machined from a solid block of aluminium and refined with an anodised surface finish. The platter weight is exactly matched to the motor regulation in order to reduce wow and flutter to an absolute minimum.
The tonearm base and both gimbal elements are machined from solid aluminium. Precision pivot ball-bearings are used in conjunction with hardened steel spikes to ensure tightest tolerances within the tonearm assembly over a long lifetime. The tracking force is independent of gravity and adjusted with a torsion spring.
The drive unit is engineered and made in Germany. Its regulation is specifically designed for high-end audio application, placing emphasis on stability and smooth running, without quick start up times or high torque.
