DUO uses a spring to replace the traditional counterweight and balances the tracking force at 2.5 g. DUO will go through strict ex factory inspections, including the precision of the spring. It isn’t necessary to adjust it, but you can do so through the screw hole at the tone arm.
DUO’s compact 3.2” (80 mm) diameter turntable is only one-fourth the size of a standard turntable. Its deceleration belt design and unique rotational stabilization help minimize vibrations on the record.
The estimated delivery is in December. We’re committed to bringing DUO to you in time. We’ll make sure to keep all DUOers up-to-date about the latest shipping progress through Kickstarter updates and Fanpage posts: https://www.facebook.com/hym.originals/
Don’t worry! DUO will come with a protective dust cover to keep your turntable nice and clean. We also recommend to clean your record before playing it and put it back into the sleeve for better preservation. : )
