Goldmund Studio Turntable with Eminent Technologies Linear Air Bearing Arm and Grado Cartridge
While the original Goldmund tonearm on its own was really an engineering advancement, because of its size and build quality this table is a great platform for other linear tracking tonearms.
This table has been fitted with an Eminent Technology Tonearm 2 Air powered Linear Tracking Arm. It is mounted precisely and fully calibrated so that it will perform as intended.
The air hose has been routed through the table and connects to an ET air pump allowing smooth and practically frictionless movement of the arm. The power supply for the motor has been upgraded to a fully regulated 2A version. There is a large air canister also included that provides a smooth and stable air supply to the arm.
The hose length is about 6’ but it can be easily changed to a longer piece in case you’d like to place the pump further away from the table.
On the front you’ll find a motor power switch and a 33/45 selector, as well as potentiometers to fine tune the speed. The Papst German made motor spins precisely and measured at 0.01% wow and flutter! We lubricated it and adjusted the bearing.
There is also a great but basic new Grado Black 2 cartridge included so you can get up and running quickly.
You can also choose to have one of the following installed and calibrated, (about a 2hr detailed process of perfectly setting and calibrating many parameters to ensure highest performance).
