Precision machined in solid brass, with your choice of plating, The Presslift™ is a complex mechanism using 19 components to stabilize vinyl records for improved tracking and superior playback quality with the added bonus that the tonearm is lifted automatically at the end of the record to reduce wear on stylus and cartridge.
Sixty percent of its total weight is free-spinning which reduces the starting torque burden on the turntable motor and belt.
The precision balanced free-spinning upper weight is mounted on a high-quality ball bearing using ultra-fine surfaced ceramic balls resulting in a sensitive vibration damping mechanism capable to attenuate acoustically coupled waves travelling radially on the surface of the record. This results in a lower noise floor especially noticeable at higher volume playback.
The Presslift™ features an amazing and unique automatic tonearm lifting system employing inertia transmitted from the platter coupled with a complex spiral design. The 0.9 gram lifter is engineered to adapt without any tools to virtually all tonearms, head-shells and cartridge combinations.
The automatic inertial spiral lift works flawlessly every-time without fail, regardless of position or timing and does not require any resetting or readjustment once installed.
Your valuable cartridge is lifted at the end of the play and the top of the unit soon comes to a full stop while the platter keeps spinning below. At this point, the output from the cartridge remains dead-silent as if the unit were completely stopped.
These unique characteristics set this instrument in a class of its own when compared to traditional record stabilization devices or various types of arm lifters which require arming prior to each replay.
The Presslift™ is ideal for turntables employing more than one tonearm as it is not sensitive to positioning relative to the base of the arm.
