The chassis is made of 19mm thick high density wood. Standing on 3 polymer-damped adjustable feet that are also height adjustable, the chassis is decoupled and isolated from the mounting surface. The Thorens silent run bearing is made of 2 sinter bushes with a polished stainless steel axle running inside. The tungsten ball at the end is running on a self lubricating and absolutely maintenance free bearing point. The low noise AC-motor is supplied from an electronic motor drive unit. The output signal is generated completely independent from the mains power. With this you get much better wow/flutter and virtually no distortion from the mains power source.

flutter, rumble and signal-to-noise ratio of all Thorens turntables are actually
so low and insignificant that we decided not to publish them.
