Ars Cyprium (latin: ore from Cyprus). This was what the Romans called copper, the first metal to be used by mankind. Since the Stone Age, over 10,000 years ago, man has been using copper. We have taken the exceptional properties of copper, and in
conjunction with our special polymer we have developed a compound platter. The musical reproduction benefits from breathtaking soundstaging and stereo depth, the representation of the instruments gains substance. The whole sound characteristic becomes clearer and more relaxed. Platter drive is via a maintenance-free belt. The armboard is made from bronze as standard. OEM-Stillpoint feet are also supplied as standard.
In Showroom condition. Also comes with 2 armboards.

Bronze bearing, 16 mm hard metal shaft with ball on top, running on a thrust washer of 'Material S ® (green)'. This is a special low-pressure PE based material with a very low coefficient of friction and very high wear resistance, giving a long maintenance free life without the need for additional lubrication. Bushing is machined exactly to fit the bearing with zero float, yet remains replaceable.
Case made from stainless steel and delrin.
Motor control unit:
controlled by a microcontroller, ready for 3 motor drive
Up to four tonearms may be fitted.
