6 Perspex SB: The ultimate sub-chassis turntable for the 21st century
The transparent acrylic plinth stands on three individually height-adjustable TPE-damped aluminium cones and carries the motor and the sub-chassis. The sub-chassis, made of Corian, rests on three magnetic fields. A magnetic subchassis suspension system avoids parasitic noise normally caused by con-ventional spring mechanism. A supplied spirit level allows easy adjustment of the sub-chassis. A quiet running AC motor unit drives the platter’s outside edge via a belt. It does incorporate an advanced DC-driven motor control, that ensures perfect speed stability and electronic speed change.
The resonance-optimised platter is a sandwich construction utilising a fine-balanced medium density fibre platter and a 4 mm thick flat-ground layer of vinyl and a screw-down metal record clamp. It runs on an inverted bearing with stainless-steel axle carrying a ceramic ball/plate bearing. The headshell and armtube of high-end tonearm 9cc Evolution are fashioned from a single piece of carbon-fibre. A conical armtube avoids standing wave reflections. Inverted tonearm bearing comprises four hardened stainless tips in ABEC 7 spec ballraces. Supplied counterweights are suitable for cartridges weighing between 5 – 7.5 g / 7 – 10 g / 9 – 11 g or 10 – 14 g.
A top-grade connection cable ‘Pro-Ject Connect it E’ iwith RCA connectors is supplied (123 cm). A dust cover is included.
