Description

Soulines Kubrick DCX Turntable

Inspired by the Stanley Kubrick classic “2001: A Space Odyssey”, the Kubrick DCX turntable is conceived as smooth looking musical “space” object.   This is Soulines’ most advanced turntable to date. Building around their inverted main bearing and Acrylic platter, developed for the Hermes DCX model, Soulines designed a highly rigid aluminium plinth and sub-plinth, built from differently shaped layers-blocks, coupled together and strategically damped.

Design (dimensions, shape and arrangement of different openings/holes) of plinth and sub-plinth aluminium blocks employs the Golden Ratio and Fibonacci sequence, thus gaining uniform vibration damping and the reduction of the Moment of inertia in all three planes (along all three axes) to the Centre of mass. Although the Kubrick DCX looks asymmetrical or unbalanced, it is in fact perfectly balanced, providing smooth platter rotation and steady tracking.

The drive mechanism utilises a high quality DC motor optimised for turntable use. Along with an easy operation and fine speed adjustment feature, an electronically controlled power supply provides stable current for smooth motor rotation.  The inverted main bearing, machined from solid brass and stainless steel to extremely high precision, and solid aluminium arm-board are mounted directly on the sub plinth which is in turn 3-point de-coupled from the main plinth in order to maximise performance and minimise acoustic break through. The motor assembly is mounted on the main plinth.

The turntable is supported by three adjustable cones machined from solid aluminium to allow levelling and provide optimum coupling to the surface that it sits on. Supporting cones are coupled to the main plinth by means of rubber-cork washers of different diameters, providing better vibration transmitting control.

A high-performance rubber-cork mat and the Protractor LP (a cartridge alignment tool) are supplied as standard.  To allow easy VTA setting (for the tone-arms without this feature), two sets of spacers of 6 and 8mm, are supplied.
