PolyTable Signature is a new two-tier Energy Management Design model. The
platter bearing and tonearm are located on a plinth isolated from the base. The
Fluid Damped Motor System (damps torque impulse peaks) sits on it’s own
isolated base. The motor is operated via
the DMD, accuracy 3 parts per million.
PolyTable is compatible with most tonearms up to and including 12.7 inches in
length. (12 inches recommended). 16 HZ primary resonance.
PolyTable Signature is compact and extremely easy to set up.
PolyTable Signature uses a two-piece decoupled platter system. With a bonded

designing for the person that has an enduring passion for music but can not
spend the cost of their car for a turntable. This is the culmination. George E. Merrill
it to the 100K plus turntables or ANY other!

GEM Dandy PolyTable Signature Turntable with Sorane TA-1L Tonearm | REVIEW | Part-Time Audiophile
Part-time Audiophile best value award.
The GEM Dandy Periphery LP clamping ring (shown in the picture) is an upgrade for the PolyTable. It is the most advanced ring design available.
The original and first clamping ring was used on the Merrill Heirloom turntable in 1980. All of my turntable products have included an optional periphery ring. There is now one for the PolyTable and soon a upgrade for the AR modified turntable. The periphery ring is forged
from bronze to lower the resonant frequency and incorporates a damping insert
. For my products I always have a path for upgrades. If you own a PolyTable a platter trade-in is available for the ring platter $600.00 with trade in.. All PolyTables can be upgraded to the new PolyTable Signature $1650.00
DMD (Digital Motor Drive)
Any turntable that has fixed speed (no manual variation)
cannot retain speed accurately under all temperature and humidity conditions. The
expansion / contraction coefficients of the drive materials will vary with
A variable speed control solves this problem. The result is
retention of accurate pitch.
The AC line power is contaminated with multi frequency
trash. Direct line coupled motors will suffer noise problems and can
have speed accuracy issues. Without a buffer, this trash is fed directly into
the motor and coupled into the drive system and record support
A properly designed motor drive will totally isolate
the turntable drive system from this trash and allow the motor to run
smooth. This will help to eliminate the clouding of micro level information and
lead to improved resolution culminating in better imaging, detail and musical
realism. Unlike a DC motor were speed is feedback controlled and is susceptible
to servo hunting, a synchronous motor is frequency controlled and is
more desirable for turntable drive. An add on motor drive system that
produces power line voltage and has a receptacle that the table plugs into
is not as effective. The synchronous motor phase shift capacitor is still
in use. This capacitor renders, not a true 90 degree phase shift, adding
impulse noise (motor dose not run as smooth). The Digital Motor Drive uses
a regulated DC power supply powering a microprocessor, employing crystal
controlled adjustable dual oscillators for sine and cosine drive (true 90
degree phase shift). The low distortion precision sine wave dual oscillators
drive two high power low distortion amplifiers that power the motor windings.
This allows absolute 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 three parts per million. Touch button logic
control is employed. (On Off and Speed Select) The Digital Motor Drive
System is the most advanced drive system available.
