The Drive System
At the new PRIMUS we combine a MDF and Chipwood sandwich and a high gloss surface to reduce vibration. This sandwich construction is a perfect fi t for the Tidorfolon bearing holding the platter. A new DC a lifetime of musical enjoyment PRIMUS motor combined with State of the Art regulating electronic Electronic provide perfect speed stability and easy operation.
The PRIMUS comes with a precisely manufactured Aluminum platter. He is produced out of a solid piece of soft Aluminum. To improve his resonance behavior the platter is additionally coated on the back side with a high damping material to get great results. The thickness of 24mm gives him a weight of 4.5 kilogram. Much more than normally used in this price point.
We at Acoustic Signature believe that a motor system for a turntable should have enough energy to speed up the platter and keep him steady spinning but not influence him during rotation. We reach that aim by using a new developed DC motor drive combined with our own State of the Art motor control and a external power supply.
The platter bearing is the heart of every turntable and Acoustic Signature have invented a bearing with the ideal performance characteristics of exact fit, extremely low noise, very low friction and long term stability covered with 10 years warranty.
The Primus comes with a 9" Acoustic Signature TA500 tonearm included, an $899 value.
The Primus comes with an Acoustic Signature AS MM 1 phono cartridge included, a $199 value which Ortofon makes exclusively for Acoustic Signature.
