Sony TTS-3000


The TTS3000 employs a slow speed servo-controlled motor to drive the platter.

The use of a slow speed (300rpm) motor eliminates much of the noise and rumble that originates in mechanical speed-reducing systems.

This unique servo system effectively compares motor speed with a very stable frequency reference.

Any error in motor speed results in a correction in the current supplied to the motor.

The speed reference is entirely independent of outside influence and line frequency is only used to power the strobe light.

Also available fitted with the PUA-237 tonearm as the PS-2000, or with the longer PUA-286 tonearm as the PS-3000.
