Transcriptor Transcriber

The rarest of the rare.

This incredible Transcriptor turntable is in fabulous physical condition. Our tech-guy has just had the pleasure of giving this a full check-out to ensure that it is also in full working order.

The Transcriber is constructed from aluminium and stainless components, housed in a clear toughened glass case, with all glass edges ground. The unit features a main bearing of thin section, ground and polished stainless steel running into teflon bushes, and onto a tungsten thrust pad. The platter of the Transcriber is of heavy construction, driven by two 24-pole AC synchronous motors via a neoprene belt. The turntable is supplied fitted with a Transcriptor Micro-tracer tonearm, a jewelled unipivot arm with fluid damping.
