The current Reference turntable employs a low-speed, recoil start synchronous motor on a single spring mounting driving the platter via a neoprene belt, thereby providing complete vibration insulation. The main bearing is manufactured from high-grade aluminum with two pressed fit P.T.F.E bushes at either end of the housing ensuring minimum contact with the bearing spindle, which it self comprises of a silver steel shaft and aluminum hub running on to a ceramic ball bearing. Platter speed is determined by the A.C mains frequency, which is effectively constant and is powered by a separate linear power supply. Speed changing is accomplished by moving the drive belt from one motor pulley to the other. Tonearm packages are available at extra cost.
