Garrard Zero 92


This is a lower-priced version of the Zero 100c, retaining all of its important features and giving up only a few refinements in exchange for a substantial saving.

If the Zero 100c didn't exist, the Z92 would undoubtedly be the most sophisticated record changer money can buy, by virtue of the Zero Tracking Error Tonearm alone, if for no other reason.

As a matter of fact, the Z92 is identical to the Zero 100c in other essentials as well.

It has the same Synchro-Lab motor, combining both a 4-pole induction rotor section for starting torque and a synchronous section for constant, accurate speed (This outstandingly powerful and reliable motor is also magnetically screened and shock-mounted).

It has the same low rumble, wow and flutter measurements because both the platter and the drive system are essentially the same.

It has the same two-point support for the record stack, to prevent enlarged centre holes.

It has the same type of accurate sliding weight stylus force adjustment, without springs.

The anti-skating adjustment also operates by gravity rather than by springs. This lever-and-sliding-weight device is calibrated for both spherical and elliptical styli.
