The ZV8 Edge Series turntable was designed and engineered using proven engineering techniques to eliminate resonance and standing wave vibration. It’s plinth’s unique cut away shape; sharp curves and untraditional angles are all done in the name of vibration elimination. This paired with mixing other materials such as POM, brass, Teflon, and a acrylic platter effective deadens the plinth so it doesn’t carry or amplify and unwanted vibration to your cartridge.
With the ZV8 we also followed the same philosophy going to great lengths to eliminate vibrations. First step we took solid billet aircraft grade aluminum and milled it with a diamond tipped milling blade with the result being a super fine grid free finish that won’t pick up resonance. Secondly on the underside of the platter we contoured machined the platter on a gradient again to dissipate vibrations. Finally we isolated the platter and bearing from the plinth using a 15mm acrylic cuff which the bearing effectively sits on so it has no direct contact with the plinth. This combination of processes allows our clients to use the ZV8 with or without a rubber mat and gives them the option to use other options other than rubber with the aluminum platter.
ZV8 comes standard with a combination of choices using our Aeshna series aluminum and carbon tonearms and we offer an optional adaptor for a second Aeshna arm or can provide fittings for other premium tonearms and vintage arms up from 9.5-12 inches.
The ZV8 also comes standard with a fully independent motor supply in a 2kg aluminum housing regulated by an AC regenerating circuit, which allows for a perfect AC current that can be slightly adjusted at 33.3 & 45rpm. This option allows users to get the absolute most out of their listening experience free from swapping pulleys or belts.
