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.

Garrard 301 1975 Service Bulletin

Courtesy of No.6435 Thank you so much for posting this bulletin. I wonder what they would think about the resurgence of idler drive turntables in 2010.

BBC Hot Rod Garrard 301 from console

The BBC used lots of Garrard 301 turntables over the years. They probably knew more about the 301 than anyone. Here is an example with documentation of a 301 from a custom BBC console. This is the only documentation I have been able to find of the actual console. Their goal was to optimize performance and not looks. If anyone has additional documentation please let me know.

EDIT a couple more pictures found.
