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 Phono USB utilizes a straight 8.6“ aluminum tonearm design made from a single piece of aluminum with sapphire bearings, which offers a far better plug & play solution, than its predecessor. Special feet effectively decouples the turntable from the surface.
Because Essential II Phono USB comes with pre-mounted cartridge and built-in phono preamp with USB output, connection to both line-level input of your Hi-Fi system and PC/Mac easily can be used simultaneously. Open-source recording software Audacity® is not based on a specific platform, is available for free and the perfect solution for recording and processing of your audio data.
