And now these same minds have engineered a superb direct-drive turntable for $200 (nationally advertised value). Like the DDX 1000, the DD 20 has a servo-controlled motor; changes in line voltage have no effect upon rotation speed. A floating suspension system protects the turntable assembly and tonearm base, eliminating acoustic feedback and providing isolation from outside vibration.
Wow and flutter is less than 0.03 and signal-to-noise ratio is greater than 60 db.
Its precision-machined high mass platter has an engraved stroboscope pattern to attain absolute accuracy at 33 1/3 and 45.
The clean-lined base has an acoustic as well as an aesthetic function: formulated of a special compound of plastic and iron particles, it provides extremely high density. Result: a unique low resonance base.

Isn't it time to upgrade your pleasure?
