For sale is a brand new in box Phoenix Engineering RoadRunner tachometer with 2 cables (I purchased an optional second cable when I bought this as a backup knowing that the company was about to close its doors). I'm selling for the original price ($235) of the RoadRunner. The buyer will get the spare cable and magnet as part of the package as a bonus.
The RoadRunner is a microprocessor controlled digital tachometer used for monitoring turntable platter speed to 3 decimal places of resolution. The internal time base is a temperature compensated crystal oscillator (TCXO) accurate to 2.5 PPM (±0.00025%) with less than 1.0 PPM aging per year.
The RoadRunner Tachometer provides a direct digital readout of the platter speed after only 2 revs and updates the display on each revolution afterwards. This provides a significant improvement over strobes and other devices (i.e. Sutherland Timeline) that are only indicators of fast/slow, not a measurement device. Strobes also lack resolution; often you need to track the “drift” of the marks over several minutes and compute the speed using a calculator. At 33 RPM, a speed error of 0.01 RPM represents a drift of 0.0113” per revolution (about the thickness of card stock).
PayPal is the preferred payment method and buyer will assume any fees + actual shipping. Package weighs in at just under 1 pound therefore shipping should be very inexpensive
