Muse 3C is powered by two direct current motors and by design is friction-driven, however its major innovation is possibility to convert it to a belt-driven system in minutes by replacing traction rollers and putting on a belt (and, of course, setting a switch to a correct position). To prevent possible mechanical vibration, we use traction rollers (be it friction or belt) of different diameters, spinning at different velocities and having mathematically non-multiple diameters to driving disc diameter. Disc velocity is stabilized by quartz-based phase locked loop (PLL) system, so average speed deviation depends solely on the parameters of quartz crystal. Turntable drive is equipped with both mechanical and electronic protection systems.
Turntable also features an electronic inclinometer (electronic level dedicated to measuring turntable slope/tilt angle), which allows user to achieve perfect horizontal alignment without using additional tools.
The turntable can be equipped with one or two tonearms with effective length ranging from 9.5” to 12”.
