The main improvement is the sub-platter, where we used the experience we gained from designing the Vienna Philharmonic Record player to add key changes to the Classic Evo. The main bearing construction we use is a similar system as the one on the Vienna Philharmonic Record player. For improved comfort, an electronic speed change was built in, which lets you switch from 33 to 45 rpm (and vice versa) with the push of a button. Compared to the old Classic, we improved the subchassis; we tried to make it heavier and stiffer to reduce resonances. Isolating the platter and tonearm from the resonances of the motor and main plinth is the target. The heavy aluminium main platter construction utilises advanced thermo plastic elastomers (TPE*) for optimising resonance behaviour.
