Verdier La Platine Turntable

Just arrived is the stunning Verdier Plantine turntable. This French table may be new to you but its been available for years.

The La Platine uses the most rudimentary of scientific principles to minimize friction, the bane of civilization. To banish friction, the bottom half of the turntable’s platter is supplemented with a permanent magnet. This magnet is “supported” by another permanent magnet attached to the plinth, with the poles of both magnets facing each other. And as you know, like poles repel, exactly the same principle applied to those futuristic Magnet trains. Voilà!

A central spindle keeps the plinth and platter in alignment. The “levitation” platter ensures ultra smooth rotation. An external DC motor, mounted away from the turntables unit, turns the platter via a fine nylon thread (provided generously by the manufacturer). 

The table can mount 2 tonearms. I have it set up with the fabulous EMT tonearm and the equally amazing Sumile cartridge.
