The Stabi SD turntable is a special version of Stabi S turntable which can accommodate two tonearms. The second tonearm is fixed on the extended T part of the main turntable chassis. Stabi S turntable can be modified to accept a second tonearm by simply replacing the shorter part of T beam with extended version ( either 9 or 12 inch version) which also increases the mass of the Stabi SD turntable. Due to its construction the existing lid of Stabi S does not cover the Stabi SD. Stabi S can be also converted into Stabi S 12 inch version.
Its unique shape and construction of solid brass rods, provide an extremely rigid connection to platter, bearing and tonearm support. There is no flat plate to resonate and transmit vibrations, only solid brass rods 50mm in diameter. A second brass rod provides stability and the two are clamped together in a T shape. The motor is housed independently in its own bras tower which dampens vibration of the motor itself. A ground, flat belt provides drive from the motor pulley to the subplatter.
The bearing is of highly polished, fine grain carbon steel with a one point contact, while the bearing sleeve is of a resin/textile material which has excellent damping, non-resonant properties.
With a mat on top and rubber damping insert underneath, the sold aluminium platter provides a stable non-resonant platform for records.
A 45 rpm adaptor is provided and is simply slipped over the 33 rpm pulley. The turntable can accommodate various tonearms by the use of different pre- cut brass plates and it allows for VTA adjustment on any tonearm mounted.
