TemaadAudio Stand alone DC Motor Pod. As many people have found, replacing their old AC motor with a quieter DC motor can bring significant improvements to the T/T sound. The trouble has been that many existing motor kits leave much to be desired in the fitting kit received. With many users even having to modify their plinths. Now this is no longer a problem as this unit is completely stand alone & sits at the side of your T/T. Comes with advanced motor controller that allows 33 & 45 rpm at the flick of a switch, also there are individual trim pots to allow for fine tuning of the speed. The drive belt we recommend is a Mylar belt, which has been proven to provide superior platter driving performance than any rubber belt. If the user prefers we can supply a threaded belt. our test's have shown the motor in this unit is much quieter than provided by other kits.
