3 Vibration Damping Layers

Traditionally the 2 mm up and below 0% are locked to 0% by the Quartz lock. The new control circuit to reduce fluctuation of the pitch and also give it it's accuracy around the 0%. To be sure that you are able to play your records on the speed they are intended to (0% there is a pitch-reset button so there is no need for checking the platter strobo to allign the ball pattern.
