J. Sikora Standard MAX Turntable

Maximum rigidity, minimal resonance, and the highest achievable level of rotational stability.

J. Sikora Standard MAX Turntable

J. Sikora eventually accomplished their aims with the use of no less than five different and carefully-tuned materials, forming a sandwich arrangement. Rotational stability is regulated by a very advanced motor control circuit (DC/PAPST) and any remaining irregularities were largely eliminated by the use of two diametrically-opposed motors.

This superb turntable may be used with a wide range of tonearms.

All US Standard MAX model turntables are available in your choice of silver or black finishes.
