Broadcast Electronics 12C2


The Model 12C2 is Broadcast Electronics' two speed turntable engineered for performance and dependability. This rim drive turntable utilizes the proven design and quality of the popular three speed version, the Model 12C.

The 12C2 is a rugged, reliable turntable which comes up to speed in a fraction of a second, and performs with minimum rumble, wow and flutter.

The use of an acoustic-absorbing, high-memory rubber idler further assists in achieving low rumble, wow and flutter. This new rubber idler is of a material specially blended for Broadcast Electronics.

Newly designed motor isolation mounts and a statically balanced motor/counterweight assembly also help reduce rumble.

A redesigned platter achieves maximum kinetic flywheel energy, with improved dynamic balance. The idler is specially designed to transmit the motor torque to the inside rim of a perfectly concentric platter.

Outer rim drive has been demonstrated in over 35 years of usage as the best method for achieving "instant start" with a minimum of vibration effects.

Attractively styled, the 12C2 turntable has a gray matte finish with black felt pad and a durable polycarbonate overlay on the speed shift plate extrusion.
