Default THREE MOTOR TURNTABLE

Just few weeks ago I did install on my turntable 3 motors.The results are impressive and well worth the efforts.

Default Three motor

One picture is on my introduction.
In short :the results are very good and have worth the efforts.
With more motors you get more details,better sound stage,a lot more information,much much bigger dynamics and much better timing...
I use three of them and all have new heavy pulley.I made a test with just one motor with this pulley and improvement was noticeable.
Under the motor is fixed one ball bearing on which is lying the motor shaft,so the motor is not over weighted due to bigger mass of the pulley.This bearing I bought from UK ebay.
I use on every motor one .22mf cap so they are shifted for 120 degrees.
This one is may way and you have many others out there and all have pros and cons,but I should stay away from those which use one single long belt.For long I have in mind the distance between pulley and touching point on platter.Bigger is this distance,bigger is jojo effect.

The turntable was designed by one my friend and was completely made in one our factory named TOMOS which was time ago famous motorbike producer.This was back in 1987 and 6 years ago the same guy made the tonearm on photo.The motors I bought from ebay and they will be as soon as possible changed with new premotec.Now they are mixed premotec and airpax.

If you want a completely quiet turntable, just leave out the motors and belts. There's nothing quieter.

Best Regards,

Even better would be that steam powered turntable!

YouTube - Steampunk record player - first full test with steam.

With a slow dialup connection, I don't usually download youtube videos...but I had to see this one! I thought he really needed a governor on the engine, but it was pretty darn cool just the same!
