The Classic offers classic look and innovative high-end technology
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 tech-nology is used for decoupling and the completely new designed tonearm.

 PLATTER & SUB-PLATTER

The heavy aluminium main platter construction utilises advanced thermo plastic elastomers (TPE*) for optimising resonance behaviour.
A drawback for most of the old designs was the platter. Casted platters all have been heavy (which is good for speed constancy and low wow and flutter) but suffered very much from ringing effects which again caused colouration of the sound. The platter of The Classic is precisely machined out of a special aluminium alloy again damped with TPE*, which offers special damping abilities. The subplatter / main bearing construction we use is similar system as on the Debut. It is made of hardened steel/ Bronze bushing/ Teflon bearing mirror, which re-sults in very smooth low noise running smoothness of the bearing.
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.

 

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.
