Belt Drive Multiple Play Turntable
The Garrard 990B is of the same basic design as the Z2000B, except for the tonearm.
It retains all other important features, giving up only a few refinements in exchange for a substantial saving.
The arm itself is the finest conventional tonearm ever designed by Garrard - it's curve is calculated to result in the lowest tracking error possible with an offset arm of reasonable length.
The arm's mass and bearing friction are both extremely low, and stylus force adjustment is precise and made without the use of springs.
Considering it's extremely reasonable price, the Garrard 990B mat well be today's top value in a changer for those who don't absolutely insist on zero tracking error.
