Manticore Mantra


Prior to leaving the factory, the Manticore Mantra undergoes a vigorous quality control.

The entire suspension system is set for the required tonearm and this is checked again by the dealer before delivery.

The motor is set for perfect geometry and should not be readjusted by the end user.

Correct running speed is also checked and the turntable is run for at least 12 hours as part of this operation.

Note that retro fittable upgrades may be made available from time to time.

Features a glass platter, A/C synchronous motor and Belt-Drive. Upgradeable with the addition of an MB series offboard power supply.

Motor: AC synchronous

Platter: 12" glass

Speeds: 33.33 and 45rpm
