Modular Component Systems MCS-6700


The direct drive of the MCS-6700 eliminates the belts, wheels and other drive elements required by conventional systems.

These same belts and so on are sources of vibration, resonance, and cyclical variations in speed.

With only one moving part, the DD system does away with these sources of disturbance, to provide smooth, constant platter rotation.

I saw that only the 6700 is listed. I have uploaded photos to the image section for model 6710 and 6720. Also have nice color images of the 6700, which I custom modified for 4 speed: 16, 33, 45, 78 RPM. Contact me if higher resolution images or basic feature descriptions are needed.
