Philips GA 108


This dual speed record player fully meets existing HiFi standards and is suitable for a wide range of installations.

The heavy steel turntable with astatic rubber mat is belt-driven by a slow-running synchronous motor, which is dynamically balanced and matched to the turntable mass. With this drive mechanism rumble, wow and flutter are almost completely eliminated.

The tubular metal pick-up arm of resonance suppressing construction moves with negligible friction. It is balanced by a counterweight and has an accurate and easy to operate Independent stylus force adjustment. The tracking error Is very small over the entire recorded area while the side-thrust compensation, adjustable with very great accuracy for both spherical and elliptical (bi-radial) styli, is equally effective for all positions of the pick-up arm.

The hydraulically damped pick-up arm lift permits the pick-up to be raised and lowered without touching the arm_ At the end of the record the arm is lifted automatically and the motor is switched off.

The head shell is of the universal type and is designed for all types of cartridges with the standard 1/2 inch (12,7 mm) mounting distance.

Changing SUPER M cartridges is of the utmost simplicity because of the unique Q click-in system.
