Transcriptors Transcriber


The Transcriptors 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 Transcriptors Microtracer tonearm, a jewelled unipivot arm with fluid damping.
