Certus Direct Drive Turntables
magnetically damped multi-phase synchronous drive
The Certus drive system's innovative approach eliminates speed and timing
distortions inherent in other drive systems. The Certus motor features a
unique permanent magnet synchronous motor with extraordinarily low cogging.
Utilizing a true synchronous motor provides precise, constant speed without
the degradations of servos or quartz locked circuits. This superior motor
configured in a direct drive topology paired with a powerful magnetic eddy
current brake results in unprecedented speed stability.
Combining the Certus motor with a revolutionary application of materials
results in a musical experience simply unknown to audiophiles until now.
While the Certus drive system design effort was mostly a technical pursuit,
all aspects of the design have been carefully optimized by tuning with the
most sensitive instruments available to us, our ears.
Eliminating micro speed errors has a dramatic effect on the listening
experience. The improvements in clarity and inner detail are not subtle.
The presentation is more relaxed and effortless. Perhaps most significant
is that the rhythm and drive of the original performance is fully preserved.
Certus drive technology is the most musically significant development to
date from Teres Audio.
Two new, Certus models (420 and 440) introduced Oct 2009 make the extraordinary Certus technology available at more attractive price points. All Certus models are available with 1 or 2 arm mounting points.
