Unique 'Tie-Dye' colour design

Aluminium belt-drive turntable
The high inertia aluminium die-cast platter is driven by a high-torque DC motor with a durable Neoprene rubber belt to achieve stable rotation. In addition, highly accurate rotation of the platter is maintained by a polished spindle (machined from a stainless steel block) contained within a durable bronze spindle holder.

An onboard analogue-to-digital converter from Texas Instruments allows you to transfer music via USB to your PC and to create high quality back-ups of your favourite albums. In addition, a pair of gold-plated RCA connectors are employed to ensure an excellent connection with your other components.
Corrosion-resistant gold-plated terminals
To ensure years of reliable performance, gold-plated terminals on the headshell connectors help resist oxidation over time.
