Extra heavy Impedance-matched platter. The platter material was chosen for its vibration-dampening characteristics, and because sonically it is a very similar material to vinyl, so it has a very neutral sound characteristic. The extra mass of the Orbe platter gives it great momentum when spinning aids in speed stability.
Free-standing motor unit. The motor unit used to drive the turntable is completely separate from the turntable, meaning it doesn’t touch the turntable in any way. The only connection between the motor and the turntable is the drive belt that drives the platter. This stops any noise or vibrations created when the motor is running, getting through to the sensitive parts of the turntable.
Orbe controller power supply. The most sophisticated power supply we manufacture, the Orbe controller uses a large toroidal transformer, Never Connected™ circuitry, and servo motor control technology to make sure the platter is always turning at the correct speed. All the time the platter is turning, the motor reports back what the RPM is; if this changes even slightly, the controller automatically adjusts its output to correct the change. The result is that the speed stability of an Orbe turntable is absolutely rock solid.
Orbe record clamp. The Orbe clamp is a screw-down design, which allows you to exert more force on the vinyl when clamping it to the platter than our standard clamps allow. This further helps flatten warped and uneven vinyl and eliminate resonance in the vinyl disk.
