    Hi Kach22i happy to hear that! will make a note to put you on our newsletter distribution we are particularly chuffed on the controls of the TA. Now in trials, will outperform a Dereneville arm handsomely. By much more than a few microns..........:cool::oops: best and be safe! Carl

    Hi there thx for the positive vibe! the 4 motors are controlled by 1 controller (driver) so there can be no signal differences The motor used are steppermotors. Basically a stepper motor has 200 steps per revolution.- so if you give it 200 pulses, it will rotate 1x by controlling the nr of...

    Good morning our numbers align almost perfectly: @200 GPI the groove width (Incl the land) is 0,127 mm, or 127 microns, half of that is 63 will check out the Newport Corp connection- thx for the heads up! the plinths of the Heretic are magnetically suspended can you please share your article...

    Hi Jhellow Most significantly we use a different control system for the TA's position, which will greatly improve tracking accuracy- and it should by any given progress in technology-but we add some "special sauce" which should give the current competition a run for their money;):cool: Because...

    Hi again when we run the 4 motors in ultra quiet mode, you almost need to touch the axle to make sure its turning- you hear only the ball bearings in the motors itself. There is a 400% power surplus in the motors The start up of the platter is programmed for quick speed up, but also avoiding...

    Hi XV1 There are many descriptions of a Noob, many (most) unflattering, but boob is not one of them- sounds like a Freudian thing;);) A Noob is a newbie, but also self minded, pig headed, has difficulty accepting established practices and advice- and this is the nice one!- hahah To make sure...

    The Heretic 1: a non-believers take on Turntable building

    Hi all render of the drive system of the Heretic 1 the 4 stepper motors are symmetrically positioned, avoiding angular pull on the bearing by the belts the motor base plate is NOT fixed to the lower plinth, allowing for egalisation of the tension differentials of the toothed belts. There is...

    Hi Shuggie- no worries here The idea is to "tame" the record, so the tone arm has less compromises pressed upon it. The tonearm will have nearly or no vertical movement due to de reflex clamp and the stabilization ring. This will reduce the impact of the vertical eff mass. The tone arm eff...

    Hi Shuggie, you are right off course, what I meant to say is that there are short and long arms with the right effective mass Carl

    The Heretic 1- a non believers take on Turntable building

    Hi Shuggie thanks for asking The effective mass of the tone arm is very important for the function of the cartridge Even though the arm is short, we will make sure that this effective mass is set up to maximize the performance of the cartridge Length and effective mass of the tone am are only...
