The idea behind the Soulines Satie DCX turntable design is simple but versatile, compact but elegant, high performance yet affordable. The drive system is built around the same high-quality DC motor used in our more advanced models, electronically controlled, providing an easy operation and fine speed(s) adjustment feature. Speed changing and start/stop function is simple, just flipping the on/off and 33/45 switches.
Soulines Satie DCX Information:
Inspiration was found in the music of Eric Satie, stripped of any pretentiousness and sentimentality, thereby revealing an austere essence. Like Satie’s music, the Satie DCX is stripped to the bare essence, concentrating on the design and the execution of the performance wise most critical turntable parts; highly rigid aluminium sub-plinth supporting substantial main bearing with the massive platter and arm board(s) accepting almost every kind of nine-inch tonearm available today.
Mass distribution is carefully calculated, placing the Center of mass on the central vertical axe of the main bearing, in the sub-plinth horizontal plane. The dimensions, shape and arrangement of different openings/holes of the aluminium sub-plinth were optimized employing Golden Ratio and Fibonacci sequence, thus gaining uniform vibration damping and the reduction of the Moment of inertia in all three planes (along all three axes) to the Center of mass. Even though stripped to the bare essence, turntable wise, the Satie DCX provides outstanding performance in a compact and extremely user-friendly package.
Included in the package:
– two different (user) exchangeable Acrylic made arm-boards for 9″ tone-arms:
– Rega/Origin Live arm-board – tone-arm pivot to spindle distance 222mm
