The Classic combines timeless aesthetics with innovative high-end technology

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.

• Metal/MDF sandwich chassis floating on TPE* suspension
• 9” carbon fiber/aluminum tonearm with MM & MC capability
• Precision Japanese ball bearing at base of tonearm

• TPE-dampened counterweight with chrome finish
