The ideal mechanism for transmitting rotation in any vintage stereo turntable is a direct-drive phono motor. This highly advanced Pioneer turntable, the PL-51, is the first in its practical price range to use this ultra-slow-speed motor. The use of this motor means that the turntable's platter is directly connected to the shaft of the drive motor, making the PL-51 operate without the use of tension wheels or belts, as is the case with more conventional turntables. The rotation of the motor is the turntable's rotary motion, ensuring extremely quiet and stable turntable operation at all times. The motor used in the PL-51 is a brushless DC servo-controlled motor with a compact design. The turntable's rotation is then kept stable through the use of an electronic servo circuit, which uses semiconductors to significantly reduce vibration and flutter to less than 0.06% WRMS. Equally important, the PL-51's signal-to-noise ratio is better than 55 dB, an excellent result that compares favorably with any other turntable on the market. Then, in conjunction with the direct-drive mechanism, this Pioneer turntable also uses a highly sensitive and stable S-shaped tonearm, ideal for today's commonly used cartridges or for four-channel recordings. Complete with a solidly constructed wooden chassis and a sturdy base with large isolators, the PL-51 offers more performance and value than you ever thought possible in this price range.
