Esta es la Yosegi E-FLAT con brazo Plano.

EAT’s E-Flat is a new, forward-thinking turntable supplied with a revolutionary flat tonearm. Although flat arms have been seen in the past, none have been able to offer the rigidity necessary to deliver the stable performance expected of modern tonearms. Thanks to the continued evolution of carbon fibre, Forte has been able to create an arm with the practical and aesthetic benefits of a flat form, but without the weaknesses.

E-Flat’s mission is to bring to the music lover the highest quality performance, but in a user-friendly design. Ultra-flat, ultra-light and ultra-rigid, the E-Flat tonearm measures 10in long. A unipivot bearing supports the E-Flat, its fully (and easily) adjustable counterweight decoupled by energy- and vibration-absorbing Sorbothane. The E-Flat’s unipivot system is extremely precise and accurately balanced, thanks to components endowed with especially hard metal surfaces. Unwanted motion often attributed to lesser unipivot designs is eliminated by the high mass of unipivot housing and the added security of two metal guides.

A further valuable benefit is that its carbon-fibre arm “tube” can be changed by the user to address to specific cartridge requirements, with either lighter or heavier tubes to establish different arm/cartridge resonant frequencies. Adjustable anti-skating and a damped cueing lever are also fitted.

A flat arm tube opens up a number of possibilities for the designer – and the listener. Its shape encourages the design of a flatter platter with easier, visible arm levelling, and there is no taper to accommodate. With perfect integration to the unipivot design pillar, no hollow tube to suffer the inevitable echo effects or ringing, greater stiffness, a new and superior hanging counterweight design with very high damping properties, the E-Flat tonearm’s performance is truly quiet and incredibly “fast.”

This handsome and innovative arm is fitted to a turntable that adheres to the basic principles established by the existing models in the Forte family. A belt-drive design, it features two motors, like its ‘bigger sisters’. The two motors do not run in parallel, but act like a virtual 24-pole motor. The belt encircles an inner sub-platter, which is fitted with inside bearing made out of bronze bushings. The main platter rests on an inverted bearing and a ceramic ball, with a Teflon lining on the underside of the main platter.

As with the larger Forte record decks, the diameter of the platter is oversized compared to those on most competitors’ turntables. 33cm was chosen because the moving mass is twice that of a standard 30cm platter. Forte fits a vinyl mat made of recycled LP records to create a surface with properties sympathetic to the LPs it supports. The platter is filled underneath with Sorbothane to stop resonance, while Sorbothane is also used to damp the bearing housing, tonearm base and magnetic feet. In addition to the isolation provided by the magnetic feet, the bearing assembly and platter aperture are suspended. Also in common with the dearer Forte turntables, the Forte E-Flat exhibits an ideal balance between mass-loading and thoughtful subchassis design.

Csm, brazos intercambiables de carbono planos, holy shiy

Rega Planet (1973)

Plato de tres radios de acero y aluminio con brazo Acos Lustre.

rega-planet-acos-TT.jpg

Roy Gandy desde sus comienzos tiene el mismo planteamiento que hay ido refinando a lo largo de los años. Esta tornamesa, o  máquina de medición de vibraciones precisa , en sus palabras,  marca el debut además como marca que debe su nombre a la combinación de Tony Relph, su partner y el propio:  Re(lph) Ga(ndy). Trata de reducir la masa, porque observa que la energía se puede transmitir más fácilmente de un objeto pesado a uno ligero que a la inversa. Por lo tanto, los tocadiscos Rega tienen platos relativamente pesados en comparación con sus plintos livianos pero rígidos. La idea es que los plintos más ligeros son menos capaces de transmitir el ruido del motor y rodamientos al plato.

Otro concepto también es la aplicación de la masa en el plato, lo más alejada del  eje de rotación para lograr el efecto de volante de inercia. En esta primera entrega opta por enfocarse en este aspecto, que otros diseñadores ya habían desarrollado como David Gamonn en su célebre Trascriptor Reference. En los modelos siguientes ya plantea platos con los bordes regruesados. Este concepto lo presenta lúdicamente en este video:

En las palabras de Gandy:

"Some turntable manufacturers design their thrust bearing so that it is at the center of gravity of the rotating platter.
Rega has always believed this concept shows a misunderstanding of the various forces inherent in a rotating turntable.

Our little spinning toy demonstrates perfectly that a spinning flywheel with its centre of gravity close to the contact point is inherently unstable. In fact, it is so unstable that it will upend itself and spin in a more stable manner on a thrust point that is further away from its centre of gravity."

Rega Planar 8

0319Rega8.png

Poca masa, mucha rigidéz. Un concepto no siempre bién comprendido si no se sabe el papel que juega en el diseño de una "máquina de medir vibraciones":

"The comments under the RP8 review indicate deep Rega resentment among some readers. People complaining about “cheap” cartridge clips are misguided. The ones Rega uses are low mass, but not “cheap” and with care they should not break off. I’ve never broken one off because I don’t ever force the clips on. I carefully widen them if need be by inserting in them a toothpick. The wire to clip joints on the RB880 arm appear to be greatly improved over earlier “blob of solder” types. I’m not sure if anything in the $3000 price point provides better value than Rega’s new Planar 8 both for how its made and especially for how it sounds. It’s not quite built like the Naiad, but then it doesn’t cost $40,000 or whatever that unbuildable design costs."

La nueva apuesta DD de Brinkmann Audio. Qué ganas de saber los detalles. Hasta ahora escuché que andará por los 11 mil euros. Más cara que la excelente Bardo e inspirada en la de correa Balance, actual tope de línea de la marca.

"Taurus, Brinkmann’s Ultimate Direct Drive Turntable, will debut at Munich High End 2019. Built on a massive 40mm thick chassis inspired by Balance, Taurus offers wireless speed selection and, approaching the versatility of Spyder, can accommodate either one or two tonearms without modification thanks to our proprietary “Collar System” which facilitates change and adjustment of virtually all tonearms from 9“ to 12‘‘ length. Shipping Q4, 2019."

Brinkmann Audio ya tiene en su web su último diseño Direct Drive: Taurus. Ellos no tienen traumas ni complejos DD vs Correa. Hacen tecnología propia que saca de cada mundo lo mejor posible y la Taurus es una muestra. Ubicada en la mitad de su oferta, su tope de línea sigue siendo de correa. Veamos que sucede en el futuro. Yo escuché un par de veces la hermosa Bardo y puedo dar fe lo musical que es. Y la Taurus tiene un sonido más llenos, además.

click to close

More than a decade ago, Brinkmann inaugrated the Direct Drive Renaissance with the introduction of Oasis. The first throughtly modern direct drive turntable, Oasis partnered Helmut Brinkmann’s bespoke, proprietary motor with a massive platter, „Soft“ speed control and the myriad engineering flourishes which define Brinkmann Audio’s design ethos. Oasis combined the extreme pitch accuracy and durability of the best direct drive systems with levels of musicality and liquidity which had previously been the exclusive domain of belt drive. Our legendary Bardo soon followed and has been our best-selling turntable ever since.

Over the past few years, Brinkmann developed the versatile Spyder, effected evolutionary improvements to our epochal Balance and introduced Nyquist, widely considered the world’s finest Digital-to-Analog Converter. The lessons learned creating these state-of-the-art components suggested ways in which we could advance our direct drive concept to a higher level of performance. Brinkmann proudly introduces Taurus: the finest direct drive turntable we know how to build. 

Like Oasis and Bardo, Taurus features our bespoke, magnetic field motor, built to Brinkmann’s proprietary design specifications. Our unique „Soft“ speed control and platter are likewise retained; however, that’s where the similarities end. Built on a massive 40mm thick Duraluminum chassis inspired by Balance, Taurus delivers deeper, more visceral bass combined with the dynamic agility and forward drive which characterize all Brinkmann direct drive turntables. Taurus‘ chassis has been resonance-optimized to banish mechanical noise and enable the deep-black background for which Brinkmann turntables are renowned. In a further homage to our statement turntable, Taurus offers wireless speed selection via an engraved aluminum disc reminiscent of Balance’s hard-wired control. 

Balance wasn’t the only inspiration for Taurus. The development of Spyder; specifically, the ability to easily add or remove tonearms, prompted Brinkmann to develop a proprietary „Collar System“ which enables our newest turntable to easily convert from a one-arm to a two-arm system and vice-versa. Virtually all tonearms from 9“ to 12‘‘ length are accommodated. Like all Brinkmann turntables—both direct- and beltdrive—Taurus is equipped with our „Performance Power Supply“ (our „RöNt“ Vacuum Tube Supply is an optional upgrade) and Crystal glass mat, which both facilitates cleaning and improves audio performance. 

Is Taurus the Baby Brother of the Balance or the Big Brother of the Bardo? You decide. Either way, Taurus defines the ultimate in direct drive turntable technology.
