The TROVATORE, successor to our Rondine 3, is more robust and made with greater precision in every detail. It is an all-new design, loosely based on proven suspended chassis designs of the 1960's. It is more robust and made with greater precision in every detail. It is a no compromise design. It is ideally suited to archivists, collectors, or audiophiles. The TROVATORE features 6 speeds: 33, 45, 76, 78, 80 and 90 rpm, and will accommodate any sized record up to 20 inches in diameter, including the common16 inch radio broadcast transcription. All this with a small footprint!
Its isolated motor, massive 8 lb platter and precision spindle bearing results in extremely low rumble. The motor is controlled by a sophisticated electronic controller to maintain speed under varying loads. Easy speed change is by a single knob. The +/- 15% pitch control can correct almost any speed problem. The arm height is adjustable for all phono pickups.
Every unit is hand built to exacting standards. Employed in its construction are state of the art CAD design and precision ultrahigh tolerance CNC machining. The spindle is removable for correcting eccentric records. The acrylic platter is similar in composition to the actual disc played providing excellent dampening, a resultant neutral sound, and deep bass.
Its large diameter spindle bearing results in both low friction and low noise. The Rek-O-Kut S-260 MKII low-friction, 12 inch arm is much longer than conventional arms and provides more accurate tracking of any record. The entire playback mechanism is isolated by vibration absorbent pods. Vertical cut discs are playable with a separately purchased, special headshell with cartridge or with our new Re-Equalizer III.
Its attractive base is made of hand-finished solid select American walnut.
The arm is upgradeable to our S-260-OD fluid damped arm (shown with special order @ $360.00 Padauk base, also called African Rosewood or Vermillion).
Accessory, full dust covers are available.
Supplied with minimalist dust protection sheet. Phono cartridge or styli must be purchased separately. Recommended for both audiophile and/or vintage records.
The massive mat-less platter reveals all the bass within your records. Your vintage records may have rumble built-in from the recording lathe or warps. Consider our rubber mat to minimize it.
