Judging from the top part of the platter, it think not!
The air suspended/record vacuum platters had all steel surfaces with soft flanges at
the records periphery and center tab...
Any way it is, any good micro is a work of art and a glimpse of the shape of things to come
some 30 years ago...
One question about the tonearm base: wasn't there enough space to make a separately standing one,
or you just wanted an intergraded solution?

This is the first generation of MICRO SEIKI SX-8000Turntable, there is no vacuum absorption functions. MICRO SEIKI SX-8000 II Turntable with vacuum suction function, very rare and expensive.
Tonearm installation location is convenient to operate.
 
I have 2 of these arms and they are easily one the best tone arms around. Beautiful machine work. Was there a reason you could not have placed the arm on the right side for easier cueing?

Some of the more expensive Micros had air platters also, was this one of them?

I spent 6 years to design two sets of air flotation turntable and tonearm system. I will introduce to you, I hope to share with you.
 
Hi Record33, looks like you recycled the rotating collar from the armbase in the Technics SL-1200Mk2. It's a very easy to use mechanism. Great idea!
