Braun - Less, But Better - PS-600 Turntable

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.

  1. A beaut!
    Is that a power transistor on the top of the chassis? And what's on top of the headshell?

    1. I was wrong. I see what you are talking about now. That transistor is part of the motor somehow.

  2. The little round thing is a little knob that goes on the hole in the headshell. It is used if I want to use it as a record changer.

    thanks
