The new TT Three Reference have 3 of these massive motors each pulling with about 2 BHP, giving a platter mass-inertia equivalent of well over half a ton (!) but without the usual and considerable energy storage drawbacks of a high mass platter. The motors draw so much power that each motor has its own power supply, so that makes 3 boxes. The additional control unit has 3 speed settings, 33, 45 and unusual for a turntable in this price range, 78, all speed settings have adjustment, the 78 setting requires a different pulley to be used on the motor spindles, this is done to allow us a range from about 60 RPM to over 120 RPM, as many very old 78's were not cut at a true 78 RPM. To facilitate the 78 ability the TT Three can be ordered with two or three tone arms. The TT Three sub-chassis will be cut for two tone arms only, the Rega and the Audio Note™ AN-1s, rightly or wrongly I consider most other tone arms unsuitable, because their energy transmission and dissipation behaviour is not designed in such a way that it leads the resonance's away from the cartridge, down the arm tube through the bearings and arm pillar into the sub-chassis, to be dissipated there. There are NO plans to offer the TT Three Reference or any of its later derivatives cut for other tone arms, so don't ask No longer a problem, the TT Three Reference comes with everything ready for the arm to be dropped in with cartridge in place and height preset, all that needs to be done is fit counter weight and set tracking weight.
