PolyTable Turntable

 

The PolyTable is designed and manufactured by George Merrill in the USA for the music lover who wishes for a quality turntable but has a budget. The simple design criteria is to provide a quality product for anyone purchasing their first true high performance turntable. The looks are striking. The sound performance will best any table in the price category and beyond. You will be very pleased!  One reason for the excellent sound quality is, Energy Management Design. As shown on the spectrum analyzer the chassis resonance frequency is the ideal 19HZ, away from arm cartridge problems and below recorded information. My products are not loaded with fancy polished gimmicks just excellent engineering.

PolyTable Digital Motor Drive (DMD)

Advanced Digital Processor Controlled

Any turntable that has fixed speed (no variation) cannot retain speed accurately under all temperature and humidity conditions. The expansion / contraction coefficients of the drive materials will vary with the environment. For example, acrylic will grow or shrink dramatically with normal room temperature changes. A variable speed control (DMD) solves this problem. The result is retention of accurate pitch.

 The AC line power is contaminated with multi frequency trash. Without a buffer, this trash is fed directly into the motor and coupled into the drive system and record support platter. A properly designed Motor Drive will totally isolate the turntable drive system from this trash. This will help to eliminate the clouding of micro level information and lead to improved resolution culminating in better imaging, detail and musical realism. 

 The  Motor Drive uses a regulated DC power supply powering a microprocessor, employing crystal controlled adjustable dual oscillators for sine and cosine drive. The low distortion precision sine wave dual oscillators drive two high power low distortion amplifiers that power the motor. This allows total isolation from the power line.  Speed sweep is plus or minus 2 percent. The turntable speed is checked with an on board strobe light driven by a short pulse crystal controlled square wave oscillator.

Speed accuracy is two parts per million.   

Touch button logic control is employed.

The PolyTable Digital Motor Drive System is the most advanced drive system available.

It affords a noticeable improvement in performance.
