This is the little sister of the Pioneer exclusive, sharing many of the Exclusive's qualities, along with its spectacular looks.
The finished turntable sells for up to $2,800 and its well worth it.
You get something every bit as good as a Technics Sp 10 or Denon dp80 or Garrard 401 but looks a hell of a lot better (than the Garrard that's for sure). This one needs a japanese power transformer -for $60 you get a really good one, compared to paying $600 for a technics Sp10 power supply.
Inertial mass of 480kg-cm2
Rotational frequency deflection 0.002% or less Signal to noise is a remarkable78dB like the exclusive p3

here is plinth for sale on ebay- you could probably make your own easily enough
Just installed a new Golden Age Audio bearing in my 401. The improvement is significant, particularly in speed and soundstage. And the music seems more fluid and open - lovely!
It’s the first time I’ve dealt with Duc. What a top operator. On the ball with quick responses and turn-around. A highly recommended upgrade.
Just got a garrard 401 and looking for recommendations for tonearm. Considering EMT 929, SME 3012, Ortofon RMG 309, Audio Technica 1501 mk3?, Jelco. I am hoping for a musical setup rather than a 'vintage collectible'. I have a zyx r100 which I am thinking of reusing on the garrard.
There isn't a lot on the EMT with the Garrard and I have heard conflicting opinion.
Any thoughts? Thank you
