The Classic offers classic look and innovative high-end technology.

This turntable makes use of traditional frame design which was established by the famous turntable manufacturers of the 50’s and 60’s. It uses a compact simple and elegant form factor. The Classic incorporates a combination of approved belt drive design using a low noise AC motor with an ultra precision frequency DC-driven AC generator (like Speed Box) for ultimate speed stability. Advanced technology is used for decoupling and the completely new designed tonearm.

The Classic’s construction is also noteworthy. Its platter is made of aluminum, and its tonearm of aluminum and carbon fiber. Lifting the platter and subchassis from the wooden base, which comes in numerous finishes, reveals spherical dampers of thermoplastic elastomer (TPE), to help isolate the platter, arm, and cartridge from the motor and its vibrations. The Classic doesn’t look or feel cheap -- when I first saw it, I thought it would cost twice as much.
OTHER CLASSIC TURNTABLES
Pro-Ject Xtension9 Turntable

Pro-Ject Xtension 9 Evolution

Xtension 9 Evolution incorporates all our turntable design experience from more than 20 years in a slim-line size to fit standard audio racks. Xtension 9 chassis is made from MDF filled with metal granulate, that gives high mass and is non-resonant. Magnetic feet, which decouple the main plinth from its base, are combined with a weighty 16kg total turntable mass. The result is a unique combination of ‘mass loaded’ and ‘floating turntable’ design principles. Instead of pure metal for the main platter, we’ve found a perfect alloy which we damped on with thermo plastc elastomers (TPE). Additionally we’ve glued recycled Vinyl records to the top (which act as a perfect mat) and bake this ‘sandwich’ before precision balancing it.
