Founded in 1960 by Coventry born engineer/designer David Gammon. Transcriptor products have been widely used in numerous television commercials, and in many films, including the classic A Clockwork Orange.

The Reference turntable employs a low-speed, recoil start synchronous motor on a single spring mounting driving the platter via a neoprene belt, thereby providing complete vibration insulation.

The main bearing is manufactured from high-grade aluminium with two pressed fit P.T.F.E bushes at either end of the housing ensuring minimum contact with the bearing spindle, which it self comprises of a silver steel shaft and aluminium hub running on to a ceramic ball bearing.

Platter speed is determined by the A.C mains frequency, which is effectively constant and is powered by a separate linear power supply.

Speed changing is accomplished by moving the drive belt from one motor pulley to the other.
