Aurex Toshiba SR-255


The Toshiba SR-255 employs a direct drive system. Unlike conventional types of record players using a drive belt or an idling wheel for driving the turntable platter, the SR-255 is so designed that the turntable platter is driven directly by the motor (the turntable platter is directly coupled with the motor shaft), thus assuring everlasting performance and longer life.

The DC servo motor is completely free from the effect of variations in power supply frequency thus, providing smooth and stable rotation of the turntable platter.

Changeover of the turntable platter speed is accomplished by an electronic push button system. Either 33-1/3 or 45rpm can be adjusted precisely by the stroboscope and the appropriate speed control knob.

The tonearm features exceptional sensitivity in both horizontal and vertical directions. It permits the cartridge to offer the ultimate in performance. It is easily raised and lowered by the cueing control lever to protect your records or stylus from damage.

An anti-skating device responsible to the stylus pressure provides stable tracking of the record groove.

The cabinet, incorporating a newly developed acoustic material, is effective in minimizing howling and in resonance and vibration prevention.

The precision made turntable platter with its wide diameter maintains correct operation.

The plug-in headshell system permits the user to choose a variety of cartridges available in the market.

The unique insulators attached to the four bottom corners of the cabinet prevent vibrations from external source and howling. They are also effective in minimizing shocks during operation.
