Up next a description about the PrimaryControl Turntabe and Arms.
Bernd's turntable is now available. it has been christened 'Kinea'. It is a direct drive system using a low torque air coil motor.
Low torque was intentionally chosen to minimise the impact of motor judder.
The torque is adjustable in 3 steps on the control unit (knob on the right):
At start up the high torque mode is automatically selected for fastest speed up of the platter to 33.3 RPM.
The control unit works fully analogue.
The plinth is made of a 5-layer composite material. Shown above is the table mounted with the Arrow tonearm which represents the entry level of Bernd's offering.
Below a Kinea with the Reference which represents the top level of the range:
Some close up shots of this beauty:
The Reference is a stabilised uni pivot system and features a magnetic anti-skating device.
VTA is adjustable on the fly while the arm is tracking a record.
The Reference is made to order in any length from 9 to 12 inch.
