The speed accuracy and stability of many belt drive turntables driven by a synchronous motor depends entirely upon the quality/consistency of frequency delivered by the mains supply. The mains frequency at 50Hz leaves much to be desired since it is subject to fluctuation, distortion, and other innumerable problems prior to reaching your listening room.
The ISOkinetik ISOdrive off-board turntable power supplies offer a sophisticated solution to stabilise and improve any 4-pole, 110V synchronous motor drive, elevating your deck's sonic performance to startling new levels of musicality.
The ISOdrive is the ideal partner for ISOkinetik turntables, most Rega turntables (Planars 2&3, P2, P3, P25), their OEM derivatives by NAD and Goldring, and various models offered by Nottingham Analogue, Thorens, Manticore, and Kuzma, Systemdek and Cabezon
The ISOdrive requires only a small modification to the turntable; a small PCB (printed circuit board) is fitted in place of the original PCB
The ISOdrive regulates the turntable's motor drive via an intricate quadrature-quartz speed generator, providing unsurpassed speed accuracy and pitch stability. Packed into their hefty shielded steel casework (protecting the units from electromagnetic interference and vibration) are two mains-filtering transformers, and a high-current amplification circuit to assure that the power passed onto your motor is silky-smooth and constant, with no fluctuation and virtually immeasurable distortion.
The ISOdrive brings push button speed change for 33/3 RPM and 45 RPM
All told, the resulting sonic performance is previously unknown in this price category. Backgrounds become "blacker", bass gains added depth, and the overall soundstage widens accordingly, adding grip, authority and musicality to levels previously only achieved with high end turntables.
