Micro Seiki DD-40


The DD-40 features an improved torque FG servo motor resulting in advanced drive characteristics.

The fitted MA-505 tonearm is dynamically balanced for low tracking force and the tracking force application spring and tungsten wire ensure lasting quality without the deterioration problems typical of conventional tonearms.

The unit is housed in a solid base, Palisander-Rose finished pressed-board, together with the large size shock absorbers, all designed to minimise acoustic feedback and permit the finest possible sound quality.
