PRIMUS a lifetime of musical enjoyment
PRIMUS was designed and engineered to achieve outstanding performance far beyond the expectations of an affordably priced turntable. Excellent build quality, reliability and a lifetime of musical enjoyment.
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 fit 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 provide perfect speed stability and easy operation.
The PRIMUS comes with a precisely manufactured Aluminum platter. It is produced out of a solid piece of soft Aluminum. To improve its 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.
