Reference R1 Turntable

Transcriptors Reference R1 Turntable

Designed in the classical Transcriptors style, the latest version of the Reference R1 is constructed around a 40mm thick CNC machined acrylic plinth with polished diamond edges and is available either clear or black.

The platter is manufactured from a solid billet of Delrin and sits on a one-piece silver steel spindle which in turn, runs in a one piece P.T.F.E bushing housed in a aluminium bearing housing. The platter is supplied with a cork/rubber damping mat. Inertia platter weights are also available as an optional extra.

In order to reduce vibration and transferred noise to the absolute minimum possible, the synchronous AC motor uses an ingenious six-point double sprung suspension, effectively isolating it from the plinth.
