A quiet-running synchronous motor with silicone belt is driving a low-resonance platter made from MDF. A new motor control with DC power supply minimizes unwanted vibration effectively. The main platter bearing consists of stainless steel spindle and bronze bushing with Teflon bottom to secure low friction. The main chassis is made from lightweight, but very stiff compound board.
Essential II Phono USB utilises a straight 8.6" aluminium tonearm design made from a single piece of aluminium with sapphire bearings, which offers a far better "plug & play" solution than it's predecessor. Special feet effectively decouples the turntable from the surface.
