The TT Zero is a complete package of turntable, tonearm, and cartridge. The deck is based around a solid birch ply plinth which houses the leaded bronze bearing and free standing motor pod. A high mass platter and low torque motor keep the platter rotating without any cogging - you start and stop the platter by hand - simple and effective. The tonearm is a Rega RB202 with vertical adjustment and an Audio Technica AT100 cartridge.
The deck is also easily upgradeable with the WM One (Wave Mechanic) Power Supply.
At the heart of all AnalogueWorks turntables is the over engineered single point bearing. This simple design ensures the smooth and silent running of the platter so that all you hear is the music. The high mass belt-driven platters maintain speed stability, while the solid birch ply plinths provide freedom from vibration and acoustic feedback. All materials and shapes have been chosen to balance or prevent resonance, creating a turntable with an ability to provide a faithful reproduction of your vinyl collection.
The most important raw material for birch plywood is a renewable natural resouce - wood. Trees grow slowly in Finland's climate and thus the wood it produces is close-grained and of consistently high quality. Birch plywood has excellent mechanical, biological, and acoustical properties making it an ideal choice for our plinths. The boards are made in England to our size and specification. All stages of the manufacture of the plywood are controlled for veneer thickness, glue spread, dimensional accuracy, overall thickness, bonding strength, and appearance. The manufacturer is also certified to ISO 9000 and 14001 standards.
Designed to provide the AnalogueWorks turntables with additional isolation from vibration, the feet use weight dependant dampening material to minimise interferance for improved audio performance. The feet can also be used to upgrade pre 2015 AnalogueWorks models.
At the heart of any turntable is its main bearing. The AnalogueWorks bearing assembly is vastly over engineered and is manufactured to the highest precision. As a result the motor can rotate the platter assembly smoothly and silently without any unwanted bearing noise being presented to the cartridge. The manufacturer is certified to ISO 9001 standards.
The Black Eye power supply filters extraneous mains noise, allowing the motor to do its job quietly.
