Stabi R & options

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. 

Wing with armboard: Available various tone arm cut-outs

Arm holder and balcony: Available only with Kuzma cut-out- NEW from 210131- available for other arms- it is called Armj holder multi
