General:
Super cool table from Nottingham handmade in the UK, and fitted with their well regarded Ace-Space tonearm.

Sitting on top of a Townsend Audio Inflatable isolation base.

Tested and working as it should.

This 'table will ship in original box.

SPACEDECK:  

One of our most popular turntables. 

The 37mm platter is mounted onto its own chassis and runs on our classic bronze bearing. The motor/pulley assembly is mounted in its own housing which sits separately from the turntable chassis, the only connection is the drive belt, this helps to avoid audio resonances being transferred through the chassis of the turntable.  

Upgrade options available are: Second arm mount for left side, HD (heavy duty) upgrade kit comprising of the 25mm graphite ‘mat’. High gloss black finish (colour options at extra cost).

Nottingham Analogue is British company manufacturing a wide range of turntables, all built to last. The company offers lifetime guarantees on all its components. Their combination of carefully chosen, different materials, results in a unique method of damping excess energy. A natural tonal balance and good timing is the result.

Their tonearms are constructed as a carbon/aluminium composite and all have undamped uni-pivot bearings.

Testing Process:

First we try to identify any mechanical issues, particularly in the tonearm bearings.  We check for freedom of movement or any resistance on both the horizontal and vertical range.  There is a quick test for this which involves placing the table on its front edge and allowing the arm to swing freely like a pendulum.  We then make any adjustments necessary to achieve minimal resistance and sometimes adjust the bearing pressure.  On gimbal tonearms we inspect the cone tip with a magnifier.

We then asses the platter speed by using one of several methods, the most accuse is a playing a test tone on a test record and measuring the frequency out put with a frequency counter or oscilloscope.  We also utilize test equipment to measure the wow and flutter to ensure its within spec.  We do this for all speeds available for that particular model.  Adjustments are then made to achieve proper speed which will vary depending on table drive design.  Some require an adjustment of an internal or external potentiometer, some will require a pulley or motor adjustment.  We also inspect the platter bearing to ensure its properly lubricated keeping in mind that some don't require lubrication at all.

We then inspect the power supply and address any issues with overworked capacitors particularly on Linn and later Thorens machines which tend to need attention.

On fully mechanical vintage tables like the Thorens TD124 and Garrard 301/401 we will go thought the entire mechanism, replace any worn parts and lubricate all components necessary to ensure smooth operation, speed change and low mechanical noise.

When fitting a new cartridge we will go through our detailed calibration process which can involve as many as 12 steps depending on the arm design.  We perform this work on our custom turntable calibration rig which was developed in-house.

Some of these steps include:

• Pivot to spindle adjustment

• Tracing force

• Anti-skate

• Tonearm height

• Lifter height

• VTA

• Azimuth

• Stylus Distance and Overhang

We then do a critical listening test using our test records and our test system to ensure proper sonics.
