Pink Triangle Export
2-Speed Direct-Drive Turntable
The Pink Triangle Export design relies on low mass, highly dissipated (lossy) non-resonant materials; a method of construction guaranteeing reduced levels of mechanical noise impinging on the musical signal during playback.
Utilising aerospace specification aluminium honeycomb, the heart of the Export's design is it's sub-chassis onto which the main bearing, platter, arm-board and arm are mounted.
The main bearing, which supports the platter, is non-inverted (upright). It's working surfaces are made from sapphire and tungsten with tolerances held to better than 1 micron thereby giving very low noise figures (rumble).
The exquisitely engineered bearing, in turn, supports the Solid Acrylic platter onto which the record is directly sited providing excellent acoustic impedance and attenuation of vibration.
Pink Triangle was the first company to use, and patent this material for record replay - over the years many turntable designers were to subsequently copy the use of the same and similar materials for their platters; imitation, they say, being the sincerest form of flattery.
The whole suspended, floating internal structure, comprising the aforementioned parts, is hung from three narrow diameter coil extension springs to give excellent immunity from external and internal vibration.
The main plinth is sculpted and manufactured from solid wood stock to the highest carpentry standards and is available in natural ash or black ash finishes.

The Export has the classic Pink Triangle virtues of exceptional clarity, neutrality and detail, and is altogether a most attractive package; something of a bargain - HiFi Choice
