Pioneer PL-630 fully Automatic turntable.
This is in my opinion one of the best FULLY AUTOMATIC DD turntables ever made.
It's a very well built turntable with a superb damped Floating suspension and a heavy steel sub chassie. Extremely unsensitive to feedback and vibrations.
Heavy and precision machined oversized platter which weighs about 2.2kg.
Heavy and solid turntable at 12kg.
Very nice arm with a super stable and unusual fulcrum and high quality low friction adjustable bearings.
The automatic arm movements are controlled electronically by a separate motor.
Beautiful design with an analogue Pitch meter that lights up in Quartz-off mode.
The Platter motor is of Pioneer's SHR - Stable Hanging Rotor design. It's a supremely made motor of the highest quality and it's ultra-strong and reaches nominal speed in 1/4 turn. Electronic braking for quick stop.
The plinth is made of special anti-resonance material under the Aluminium top and front.
All-in-all one of my absolute favourite Fully Automatic direct drive turntables.
