A De Baer record player differs in many points from conventional record players:
The bearing for the platter and the base for the tonearm are connected with the chassis through hardened steel balls. This results in maximum stiffness with minimal contact area, thus an excellent decoupling is guaranteed. What is usually fitted on one single basis, is distributed over 5 planes in the De Baer record player.
The bearing for the platter is a journal bearing with highest precision. Two magnets operate axially which results in a floating turntable. Two hard chrome plated running surfaces undertake the guidance radially. The bearing bushings are made out of porous sinter material with less than 0.01 mm clearance.The bearing housing is filled with oil in order to guarantee lifetime lubrication.
