- Expanded scale optical stroboscope, with electronic peak pulsing for greatest clarity, is visible even while the record is playing for exact speed control at all times.
- Precision helical drive gears, of hardened steel and nylon, for smooth silent flow of power to turntable. gears housed in an oil-filled transmission for noiseless trouble-free operation. Special clutch permits cueing turntable.
- High-compliance torsional filtering reduces annoying speed variations, such as wow and flutter, to less than 0,1% far below audibility.
- Dual-stage mechanical filtering between motor and turntable reduces motor rumble to more than 60 dB below recording level, an outstanding engineering accomplishment.
- Integral pickup-arm mounting board, accommodating all leading pickup-arms, is rigidly connected to turntable bearings by a heavy aluminum casting. This eliminates acoustic feedback and other undesirable vibration differences between pickup-arm and turntable.
- Vernier speed drive with special long-life neoprene idlers permits separate adjustments of 33-1/3, 45 and 78 rpm speeds by ±5% to match the pitch of accompanying musical instruments. Convenient push button selection of each speed and off position.
- heavy-duty high quality induction motor designed specially for this turntable with dynamically balanced rotor and extremelly low external hum field.
What is stereo?
There are now two system of high fidelity, monophonic (monaural) and stereophonic. Monophonic is a system that starts from one microphone and is fed through a single high fidelity set. Stereophonic is a double system. Two separate microphones are placed at different sides of the orchestra and two different systems are used to keep the two signals or channels separated. Two separate speakers are used, placed on different sides of you room. Stereo is much like 3-D photography, two slightly different sound reach your ears giving you a new dimension in sound.
