99.998% Accurate Speed; Phase Controlled by Quartz Oscillation: The rotating speed is highly stabilised by a timing clock based on a quartz crystal oscillation which is very stable against changes of temperature or time.

By the use of Phase-locked loop method, the speed is hardly affected by load or supply voltage fluctuation.

DC Electrical Brake for Smoother Operation: Up-speeding servo function and a DC electrical brake are commanded in accordance with the speed detection data.

The result is smoother operation in speed change-over, in starting or in stopping as well as during play.

Magnetic Recording for Speed Detection: Denon established its original motor control system using magnetic recording method for speed and phase detection.

1000 pulses recorded with a high accuracy allow a high detecting frequency to expel phase lagging of the servo system accordingly over-shoot, wow and flutter therein.

Improved S/N, Wow and Flutter Performance by an AC Motor: With the introduction of pulse width modulation for motor regulation, a cleaner driving current can be applied to the motor.

This improves S/N, wow and flutter performance. This method has also reduced power consumption.
