The Piccolo is Bluenote's entry level acrylic Turntable. Like all Bluenote turntables it is a belt driven unit. It produces a very smooth, detailed and natural sound. To achieve this high level of sonic performance the turntable is made of parts exclusively manufactured for Bluenote using precision machining and the very highest quality materials.
The turntable platter is made of 20mm thick acrylic supported on a 15mm thick transparent acrylic platform rigidly coupled to its feet. The Piccolo uses the TulipanT, Bluenote's high performance aluminium pulley supplied with every turntable in the range. Made in the shape of a flower, one can easily adjust its 'petals' wider or narrower for super fine speed adjustment.
The innovative platter bearing/spindle system is derived directly from the best Bluenote models. It is based on an external threaded bearing set up with an in axis housing and uses the Bluenote Split-SpindleT. The Split-SpindleT is machined electronically and then finely polished. The bearing has two small graphite/Teflon® internal bearings enabling the Piccolo to perform very close to the standard set by more expensive Bluenote models.
The two-piece Split-SpindleT tightly clamps the platter eliminating vibrations and oscillations.
At the bottom of the external platter bearing a special threaded bearing made of Arnite© (one of the hardest and toughest self lubricant plastic polymers available) ensures not only the steadiness of turntable rotation, but also allows the height of the platter to be adjusted. This VTA adjustment capability is normally only available on the tone arm.
