SERIES: THE CLASSIC SB SUPERPACK
TYPE: Turntable

This turntable makes use of traditional frame design which was established by the famous turntable manufacturers of the 50’s and 60’s.

It uses a compact simple and elegant form factor. The Classic SB Superpack incorporates a combination of approved belt drive design using a low noise AC motor with an ultra precision frequency DC-driven AC generator for ultimate speed stability. The Classic SB Superpack convinces with high precision dynamics and its rich details. For improved comfort an electronic speed change was built in, which lets you switch from 33 to 45 rpm (and vice versa) with the push.

Like our famous Debut we wanted to create an easy to use “plug & play” product, but with better sound due to better isolation. Thanks to the modern damping materials TPE* we are able to design a very effective, subchassis construction. Isolating the platter and tonearm from the resonances of the motor and main plinth is the target.

 

OVERVIEW

The heavy aluminium main platter construction utilises advanced thermo plastic elastomers (TPE*) for optimising resonance behaviour. A drawback for most of the old designs was the platter. Casted platters all have been heavy (which is good for speed constancy and low wow and flutter) but suffered very much from ringing effects which again caused colouration of the sound.

The platter of The Classic SB Superpack is precisely machined out of a special aluminium alloy again damped with TPE*, which offers special damping abilities.

The subplat-ter / main bearing construction we use is similar system as on the Debut. It is made of hardened steel/ Bronze bushing/ Teflon bearing mirror, which results in very smooth low noise running smoothness of the bearing.
