Dieter Rams designed this turntable. If you don't know Dieter Rams just give him a goog. He heavily inspired Steve Jobs and the Apple design teams. Dieter Rams mantra is Less, But Better.
Hey check that out.... An idler wheel 8-)
The table suspension is interesting. I has a hydraulic pods it sits on. They are oil filled with rubber boots on top. Very interesting.
It is strange using an automatic turntable after so many years with the 301.
Simple nice design.
I didn't show the plinth because it is just wood. I'm going to refinish it in flat black and it will look much better.
