Belt Drive Turntable (1966)

Fully Serviced

Includes used but tested Shure M91ED cartridge

The original AR turntable. Two part aluminium platter, suspended subchassis and belt drive from a low vibration AC Synchronous motor.

The mounting location of the AR turntable is not at all critical, outside of the need to protect the cartridge from hum-inducing fields.

Because of the isolation achieved by its suspension, the AR turntable is not sensitive to external shock or acoustic feedback.

In order to take advantage of its insensitivity to jarring the turntable must be placed on a flat surface, so that the base does not rock.

It is also important that it is placed on a reasonably sturdy piece of furniture which does not wobble or rock when jarred.

Drive method: belt drive

Speeds: 33 and 45rpm

Base: oiled walnut
