Disc Stabilizer System
Trendy during the early 80s (Luxman PD-555
numerous Audio Technica add-ons, many Micro Seikis), the vacuum
pump to keep records tightly "bonded" to the platter was
one more tweak to bring LP replay to auditory nirvana.
would kill all of these ultra-engineered systems but some manufacturers
did make air-isolated CD drives :)
The TT-801 is an xxx-rare drive,
culmination of the well received but smaller TT-101,
TT-81 or TT-71.
The system isn't that different from that of Luxman, but the latter
had its bearing located much closer to the spindle.
complete system consisted of the TT-801
drive, TS-1 air pump and CL-P10
base, with blank or pre-drilled CL-P1D,
P2D and P3D
armboards. The total almost reached the 300,000¥ mark, and that
was without tonearm - TURBO had a price.
The TS-1 could be adapted to the QL-A95 integrated turntable.
the Victor TT-801 was never exported, it never was named JVC
TT-801 but only Victor TT-801...
