Voyager Mk4 High End Turntable
Voyager-S Specifications and Features
The Voyager and Voyager-S version share the same overall form. The S-version goes much further in terms of sonic performance and no compromise engineering.
Every detail of the Voyager’s design reflects meticulous attention to detail, ranging from the choice of high-strength aerospace alloys to hundreds of tests on various bearing oils.
The features listed below offer a brief overview of the advanced engineering embodied in a Voyager turntable – the culmination of 1,000’s of hours in research and development by a leader in the field.
Multiple layers of contrasting materials to damp all frequencies evenly – critical to avoid the tonal imbalances of inferior platters.
Machined from solid billets of aerospace alloy to provide minimal flexure coupled with high speed energy dissipation.
Complex milled profiles disrupt resonance patterns
Shock absorbing devices decouple vibration
Motor vibration is blocked from entering the platter by employing a separated lower platter.
The aerospace alloy plinth is shaped as an object of art with great looks and inspiring form whilst also possessing high rigidity.
Capacity to mount up to 3 arms of any length
Advanced decoupling techniques to avoid structural resonance
Special Coatings damp high frequency artefacts
Complex internal profiling of pillars
Satin and polished silver finish
Decorative strips in pillars
2 part armboard with additional lightening profiles milled in underside
Low friction reduces vibration for increased transparency, resolution and separation.
Tungsten carbide ball bearing on hardened thrust plate.
Exceptionally low-friction oil
Ultra-straight bore achieved by specialist barrelling techniques
Running-surfaces precision-machined then honed to the nearest micron.
Two High Torque, low cogging DC motors from a leading Swiss manufacturer.
Special low stretch, high grip belt material – superior to neoprene / polyester belts commonly employed. Delivers direct drive like timing.
Special hard-to-machine, high grip plastic pulley in preference to metal. Bored for accuracy as opposed to commonly used cheaper reaming as this can produce imperceptible pulley wobble. Higher precision creates rock solid timing with improved imaging and transparency.
Motor Speed Control & Power Supply
Speed control is electronically switched between 33rpm and 45 rpm.The two powerfull motors drive the platter at constant speed with no measurable deviation from absolute speed. The high degree of accuracy derives from the high motor quality and superb low noise circuit design. This includes instanteneous load compenstion while absolute speed stability is achieved through super accurate measurement of actual platter speed (LSC).
Voyager’s load-compensating power supply is the culmination of work done over several decades, and is designed to feed clean power to the motor across a wide range of temperatures.
