Turntable innovation for vinyl starters with class-leading sound quality!

A quiet-running synchronous motor with silicone belt is driving a low-resonance platter made from MDF. A new motor control with DC power supply minimizes unwanted vibration effectively. The main platter bearing consists of stainless steel spindle and bronze bushing with Teflon bottom to secure low friction.
The main chassis is made from lightweight, but very stiff particle board.
Essential II utilizes a straight 8,6“ aluminium tonearm design made from a single piece of aluminium with sapphire bearings, which offers a far better "plug & play“ solution, than it‘s predecessor. Special feet effectively decouples the turntable from the surface.

*Not compatible with Speed Box S or Speed Box DS.
