INITIAL MAX Turntable
Like with the J.Sikora flagship turntable Standard Max Black was designed from the ground up as a no-compromise design. Great care was taken to achieve maximum rigidity, minimal resonance, minimal vibrations, and the upper plane level of rotational stability. J.Sikora flagship turntable Standard Max Black implements different and careful tuned materials for its sandwich arrangement. Rotational stability is regulated by a very advanced motor control circuit built into the lowest plinth and any remaining irregularities are eliminated by the use of two diametrically-opposed motors.
Standard Max Black turntable can host two tonearm arm boards and it made in such a way that offers a broader compatibility a wide range of tonearms.
It worth noting that both the two motors and the movement of the turntable are completely silent. I would like to point this out especially because even some of the much more expensive turntables struggle with silent operation and their perpetual motion can be heard from the listening position. Yes, the absolutely silent operation should be mandatory on the entry-level price tag, but in reality, this is not the case.
33 and 45 rpm speed control and fine speed adjustment are controlled by five buttons, and the current selection is shown on the blue LED display. Simple and straightforward.
