Reference Turntable

The Reference Turntable is based on our 1964 Hydraulic Reference Turntable and employs a low-speed, recoil start synchronous motor on a single-deck spring mounted driving the platter via a neoprene rubber drive belt. Operation is a push button on-off switch and speed selection is simply a case of moving the belt from one pulley groove to the other. The turntable is suitable for use worldwide and can be supplied with the correct pulley and main plug.
