The ADS design includes two pure analog frequency generators featuring low distortion and noise; a high current Class-A/B amplifier that is transformer-coupled to the turntable output; analog control logic for low noise operation; 33/45 RPM analog speed adjustment controls with center detente positions that are factory calibrated.  Created by our Director of Electrical Engineering, Michael Bettinger.  

The Machine:

  • The platter is started and stopped by the front panel Run/Stop momentary push button switch.

  • The front panel contains a two-position push button switch for selecting either 33 RPM or 45 RPM operation.

  • There are separate speed adjustment controls for 33 and 45 RPM.

  • The controls have a detented center position that is factory calibrated for 60 Hz (33 RPM) and 81 Hz (45 RPM).

  • The speed is  continuously adjustable +/- 3 Hz

  • Blue LED indicators adjacent to the controls indicate which speed is set at a glance.
