Thales Tonarm TTT-Compact II (Black)


Years of experience in the field of analogue tracking were necessary to set the benchmark for excellence in the construction of turntables higher once more. Manufactured in fine craftsmanship, the TTT-Compact II is perfectly tuned to our tonearm Thales Simplicity II. Just its fine and compact design allows a mechanical stability not to be realized within the framework of a more extensive concept. Each of the 170 parts has been carefully designed to perform its function in the overall concept perfectly.

The new type of drive system combines the advantages of a classic friction drive concept with the ones of the widespread belt drive concept. The short belt is led thereby by two pulleys in such a manner that relative movement of motor and platter is suppressed efficiently. The resulting hard coupling makes the moment of inertia of the high-revving drive unit to become sonically effective. The drive unit, made of ductile iron, is fixed on an exactly calculated spring element. In order to neutralize resonance, the revs of the three flywheels are designed in unharmonious ratio.

The battery pack of the newest generation (peak capacity 100 W) offers more than 12 hours of listening independent of the mains supply. Every effort was made to perfect materials and manufacturing of the main bearing, clamp and platter inlay for this new device. The TTT-Compact II rests on adjustable sprical spikes keeping horizontal vibrations effectively away from the tracking process. All these high quality features are designed and manufactured to set the music free.
