Features

 

The platter

* A unique 36 (thirty-six !) layers design platter, incorporating 18 different
materials with defined energy transfer speed – combined in the optimum sequence.

* Incorporating Vinyl, Tungsten HD18, Titanium, AW6082 Alloy, 1.4401 Vanadium
Steel – plus a defined mixture of organic material layers pressed together and
bounded by natural resin.

* Featuring the unique APOLYT-concept inner platter design – and going beyond
that.

* The A*STELLAR’s platter is 100% non-resonant, with a truly unique design
concept featuring an absolute non- reflecting inner surface.

* Designed to provide the utmost possible pitch-black deep dark “sonic
background” – to allow the most tiny details to appear in an unforced and
natural way and thus to integrate swift into the all-harmonic sonic picture
provided.

* The platter spindle is fully decoupled and isolated from the bearing and featuring
an inner thread to allow optimized coupling of vinyl record to material-identical
platter surface by screw-on clamp as well as any record weight.

The bearing

* A bi-radial, unique adjustable push-pull magnetic bearing, completely
maintenance-free – proving a perfect isolated and totally vibration-free rotation.

The suspension / plinth

* Full air suspended plinth with 1.2 Hz resonance frequency.

* True 3-point precision leveling with tilt-prevention

* Plinth featuring 3 levels made from 3 different Aluminium alloys –
with inlays of Titanium and vibration-absorbing gel.

* Tonearm mounting boards with “Zero-tolerance” –
automatic perfect re-location design:

Each tonearm mounted and aligned on one position can be moved to any of the
3 positions without ANY re-alignment / recalibration needed.

* Arm boards with defined and maximized energy transfer.

The drive

* Double-point brushless DC motor belt drive – with active dynamic control motor
management – and free of any parasitic side force / drag applied to the platter.

* Double flywheel drive – with maximized inertia incorporated in the active
motor management.

* Totally decoupled bearing level and tonearm mounting board level from
motor level.

* Speed 33, 45 and 78 – all full stabilized with below 0.01 derivation from
set speed.
