Offered is an original Nottingham Hyperspace turntable with an 9" ace space arm.The principles of the Spacedeck have taken a step forward, the Hyperspace is not just a bigger looking Spacedeck - the bearings are almost directly from the Mentor turntable - the platter weight is well over twice that of the Spacedeck - the thrust assembly is unique by having the oil continually pumped around it and not just relying on the oil getting between the two surfaces.
The motor is more isolated which means less resonance and because of the ratio of platter weight to motor power the platter and armboard hardly knows the motor is there at all.
NottinghamAce Space arm uses carbon fibre tubes with the fibres oriented the length of the tonearm not wrapped around it. This greatly increases the strength, resonance control and rigidity of the arm. The headshell is also unusual in that the orientation is in direct line with the tonearm and not offset in any way. The headshell also has no finger lift. These two features ensure that the arm is properly balanced from side to side and that no uncontrolled resonances are running around the headshell.
It produces a delightfully natural sound with exceptional speed and good dynamics.
Included is a bottle of Nottingham oil and the original foam mat. There are some focal surface scratching due to normal wear. Please examine photos included. Buyer pays shipping costs and PayPal fees if used. Thanks for looking.
