This record player is a further development of the legendary . Do not be deceived however by the plain, classic design of the TD160 HD because numerous new components and innovative materials have been employed in a way to achieve a sonically superior performance when compared to its famous predecessor. The construction of this turntable is based on a progressively dampening sub-chassis which would also facilitate the use of uni-pivoted tonearms, owing to the newly developed plastic suspension springs. The one-piece platter made from acrylic material is driven by a belt at its underside, yet without the need of a sub-platter. The platter mat, a blend of cork, India rubber and polymers, has antistatic properties and ensures the optimal coupling of the record to the platter. Featuring a base plate, tonearm platform and feet made from RDC, a very special compound of micro-granules, which provides an outstanding resonance dampening throughout. The further developed electronic motor control prevents the synchronous motor from running hot, in particular when subject to extensive operation. All these measures make this turntable sound much larger than its compact dimensions would imply. Its purist appearance leaves no doubt that only the best sonic performance was of paramount importance. A real understatement, nevertheless.
