Default Still available quiet turntable motor

Hello, everyone,

I am looking for a decent turntable motor that is still manufactured. A perfect option would be synchronous hysteresis type, but I was unable to find any still in production.

Key requirements are:

*vertical shaft mount
*ripple-free rotation
*sleeve bearings
*voltage 48V or below
*good overall build quality

If any of you could possibly give any information regarding this issue, it would be highly appreciated.

There are good models in surplus, but it is not an option.

Thank you in advance,

Default available turntable motors...

...the Crouzet motors are reportedly very good. And the pricing is quite reasonable in North America (they are made in France), so I imagine they are reasonably priced in Europe.

AR turntables use a Hurst motor that can become good with a tiny bit of work.
