Stabi R is a very compact turntable made from a solid block of aluminium with an internal (built in) electronic power supply. Drive is provided through a DC motor and a proprietary, non flexible drive belt
The main platter is a constrained sandwich design consisting of three layers ( aluminium – acrylic - aluminium) in order to minimise vibration and maximise the damping effect of the platter itself and that of the LP. The ruby ball minimises friction and noise within the thrust bearing and is supported on a special low noise compound material.
One of the crucial design features of the new Stabi R is an unsurpassed degree of versatility and flexibility with regard to multiple tonearm installations. It is possible to use up to 4 (four!) tonearms around the main platter. Further, a variety of colours and a wood finish are available as options.
4Point 9 is shorter version of 4Point tonearm. Due its 9 inch lenght and lack of VTA tower makes this tonearm lighter and smaller thus capable of fitting on most suspendded turntables.
