The motor would be outboard.

HI

Sorry you mean not on the table?  The motor is attached to the chassis but the power supply is external.

Yes not on the table to avoid motor-cartridges resonances.

Hi James,
Is it possible to tell us more about your product. Where the arm comes from, the turntable (Clearaudio???), the materiel of the platter etc....
It looks like my Rega P3-24 with the TT-PSU.
Thanks

Hi

Its a custom table for Bryston by GoldNote in Italy. We are designing and building the Power Supply and they are doing everything else.

I will try and get you some tech info as well regarding arm and bearing and platter etc.

I have it playing in my system now and boy it is sounding good even if I do say so myself.

Hi James,

Can you inform us what the reason was to select gold note to partner with for this turntable?  I have 2 gold note turntables and the customer service has been terrific.

Good luck with project.

Cheers Rod

So cool James. When do you start mastering and pressing vinyl?  :wink:

Love the switchable speed on the  power supply. Does that mean the speed is regulated by the power supply for better stability?

James,

Will a user be able to level the turntable using the feet on the turntable?

Also, will a user be able to replace the tonearm cable or will it be hard wired from cart to RCA plugs?

BTW, I really like the all black look in your first pic!   :thumb:

Looks like its independent from chassis as just sits in  the plinth cutout without touching chassis.

A friend I have had for 40 years is the importer for GoldNote and he and I have been discussing the possibility of a Bryston proprietary turntable for a while now.  He is really an expert on all things 'turntable-ish' so I  asked him to put together a value priced turntable (great bearing, platter and tonearm etc.) and we approached GoldNote with the idea and they liked the idea. The commitment to the number of tables is fairly large though based on the fact that it is not a model they currently manufacture so I want to make sure this works before I jump in with both feet. 

I have the prototype unit at home now comparing t to a few tables I have and I have a dealer friend that is into really exotically priced tables which I am going to audition against as well.  The one area the table seems to excel at is dynamics and quietness between the cuts.

Yes we are looking at ways to really provide a real state of the art transformer based power supply rather than the typical wall-wart units currently used.
