Copperhead comes standard with a fully independent motor supply in a 1.8kg block aluminium housing regulated by an AC regenerating circuit, which allows for a perfect AC current that can be slightly adjusted a for a perfect 33.3rpm and 45rpm operation. Also, standard is our Aeshna Carbon or Aluminium arm with a second optional arm socket for other manufacturer's arms up to 10.5 inches.
The central bearing is two-piece solid stainless steel with a copper bushing; ceramic ball bearing and Teflon thrust plate. We further upgrade the bearing cap with the inclusion of silicone dampening rings between the bearing and aluminium platter. The table bearing sits in a 20mm acrylic anti-vibration disc isolating the bearing from the plinth further decreasing and standing wave vibration. The disc is locked into place with the use of a combination of PA-66 nylon and stainless steel screws effectively decoupling the bearing and platter from the plinth.
The Plinth is solid aluminium in satin black supported by three large POM feet to absorb vibration. In total the plinth uses a mix of Aluminium, POM, Acrylic, and pure copper slugs, effectively deadening it against vibration.
The Platter is machined a aluminium billet that is Diamond Cut on the top side and contour machined on the underside to dissipate vibration.
The Motor housing is machined out of a solid block of aluminium and completely independent from the table. It houses our 16V low torque motor which uses a universal power supply.
Colour: Satin Black with antique bronze anodized aluminium platter, or optional satin black or satin silver platter.
Multiple Aeshna tonearm combinations are available.
