TriangleART Signature turntable uses the same key technology as its Reference model, including the motor, platter, and bearing technology.
Lighter than the massive 275-pound Reference SE model, Signature weighs 200 pounds. Like Reference SE, Signature comes with a hefty solid composite metal with a 48-millimeter thick platter made of solid composite metal, used to control and dampen all vibrations for better resonance (more below). Non-inverted steel ball bearings support the heavy platter while still providing an intensely quiet and smooth as liquid performance. The jet-black background of this turntable reproduces every soft, inner details with subtle micro and macro dynamics, presenting a tight and articulate bass while projecting a holographic image and a light, airy sound stage.
The embedded platter is made of a unique composite material, and is one of the largest in the marketplace. This 48-millimeter thick platter is implemented with new flywheel technology that controls its balance and vibration.
The 48-millimeter bearing runs on a thrust washer, and is made from stainless hard, shaft steel with a large ground radius. This special material has a very low coefficient of friction and very high wear resistance, resulting in a long, maintenance-free life.
The heavy composite metal motor housing comes with a new interior AC to quietly drive that massive platter. With the inertia of the motor combined with the new design, it runs in complete silence. It also supports the platter to deliver consistent speeds – at either 33 rpm or 45 rpm.
Crystal Speed Controller:
The Crystal Digital Controller-Isolated Power Motor Drive, designed for all turntables, employees a 115v. AC motor to control the speed with precision and stabilize electrical power. The analog system is more friendly and convenient with the help of this controller. The simple touch on a switch provides the ease of speed, and the ability to control the change at will. Playing and listening to 45 rpm long plays is wonderfully enjoyable with the controller.
Signature is also available in any custom colors as a $4000 upgrade.
