Description

The Soulines TT42 turntable was designed using 3D-modeling software and employing Golden Ratio and Fibonacci sequence, in order to attain a fully mechanically balanced system. Thus the centre of mass of the turntable is placed onto the vertical axis of rotation of the main bearing shaft/platter, reducing the Moment of inertia to the very centre of the mass. To gain uniform vibration damping across the whole frequency spectrum, different materials like acrylic, aluminium and stainless steel had been chosen for the plinth and sub-plinth components according to their specific mechanical characteristics. All the components are precisely CNC machined and hand-finished to the highest standards.

Soulines TT42 Information:

The main plinth is manufactured from acrylic with a massive aluminium sub-plinth and motor assembly that are 3-point and 4-point coupled over differently sized rubber-cork washers for damping, thus gaining maximum control of vibration transfer through the complex plinth, sub-plinth and motor-pod assembly. Both arm-pods and main bearing assembly are tightly mounted directly onto the massive CNC machined aluminium sub-plinth which is in turn 3-point coupled to the main Acrylic plinth over differently sized rubber-cork washers used for damping.
The main bearing assembly is of the inverted type, precisely CNC machined and finished to the tightest of tolerances. The bearing top hub is machined from solid stainless steel and comprises a brass sleeve insert and Derlin thrust pad. A polished stainless steel shaft holds captive hardened steel ball bearing, at the top, ensuring that the ball is housed absolutely central to the shaft. The platter is 60mm thick weighing 5.4kg machined from laminated cast Acrylic to very high accuracy. The use of a slip mat is completely up to the user preferences, thanks to the 1.0mm deep recess carved into the top plane of the platter in the middle (for the record paper label) and to the fact that Acrylic is a great turntable mat material. The complete main bearing assembly and platter are individually manufactured to fit each other specifically, rather than manufacturing in batches.
The drive mechanism utilizes a powerful, high torque brushless DC motor and with an integrated speed control electronic driver, while the motor controller is a true analog device, providing constant speed and uniform rotation, which in turn ensures perfect natural dynamics, timbre, timing and musicality of every record played. A fine speed adjustment feature is provided for both speeds 33.33rpm and 45rpm.
The turntable is supported by three adjustable massive cone feet CNC machined from solid stainless steel to allow levelling and provide optimum coupling to the surface that it sits on. Cone feet are coupled to aluminium pods over rubber-cork washers of different diameters, while in turn, the aluminium pods are 3-point coupled to the main Acrylic plinth again over differently sized rubber-cork washers for damping. Thus, structural vibration breakthrough (from the environment through shelf, rack or stand) is minimized and can be neglected.
