Pickering FA112


The Pickering FA112 Gyropoise is a 2-speed, floating action turntable.

The patented suspension floats the platter in the magnetic fields created by two powerful ring magnets.

The FA112 Gyropoise is driven by a low-speed 24-pole synchronous motor coupled to the platter through a precision ground neoprene drive belt.

The included Unipoise tonearm has been designed specifically to meet the requirements of the best Pickering cartridges.

It is lightweight, providing the lowest possible moment of inertia.

All significant aspects of stereo, matrix and 4-channel discrete have been considered in it's design, which is both simple and functional.

Supplied with the TT1200E phono cartridge for stereo playback.
