Description

The Classic comes with a factory installed and adjusted Ortofon 2M Silver phono cartridge

Using a compact, simple, and elegant form factor, The Classic is an homage to the traditional wooden-frame design established by the famous turntable manufacturers of the 50’s and 60’s. With the combination of an improved belt-drive design and a low-noise AC synchronous motor, the high precision DC-driven frequency generator provides ultimate speed stability at both 33 and 45 rpm. A technologically advanced metal and MDF sub-chassis is suspended by TPE balls to effectively decouple the completely redesigned 9” carbon fiber and aluminum composite tonearm and TPE-dampened aluminum platter from ambient vibration.
