Tri-Balance. Because the three-point suspension system is housed in the turntable’s feet, the plinth is considerably slimmer than that of conventional sub-chassis decks. It is manufactured from a single piece of MDF, a material that offers excellent acoustic properties and can be machined to very tight tolerances. This enabled us to adopt a no-compromise approach to designing and positioning crucialcomponents such as the tonearm and the motor. The result is a perfectly balanced turntable.
The heart of the turntable. Driven by a decoupled low-noise low-voltage DC motor via a flat belt, the precision-machined sub-platter supports the main platter, which is made from fused silica. A special contact ring reduces resonance in the main platter.
Turntable and tonearm – a perfect match. The TP 92 tonearm, which was specially designed for the TD 309, uses an ultra-lowfriction bearing and an innovative magnetic anti-bias system with zero stiction. The arm tube is made from rolled aluminium that is damped using random-mass-reducing technology.The brass counterweight at the end of the arm tube is double-decoupled, and the tonearm is so designed that its centre of gravity is level with the stylus
