Micro Seiki DQX-1000

1 9 7 8 1978

The DQX-1000 is the is the 1978 revised version of the DDX-1000 with a Phase Locked Loop added. Defeatable nevertheless.

Also changed is the 31cm platter, heavier at 2,9kg and which has only one set of strobe stripes ; the motor was beefed-up as well to reach a 600kg/cm2 inertial mass and a 3dB bettered s/n ratio.
The ps/command box (not named MD-1000 anymore) holds a single start button, pitch knob, speed selector and PLL on/off.

The tonearm bases were the same for both (AX-1G to AX-6G) to fit everything from the ubiquitous SMEs to the Technics EPA-100 or PUA-1600L.

The motor of the DDX was used as basis for the Marantz Tt 1000 (1979), and that of the DQX-1500 (an updated DQX-1000) for the Tt 1000 mkII (1992). And, as often, Micro's direct-drive motors came from... Victor.

The DQX-1000 remained available much later in Germany when, in Japan, Micro Seiki was already back to belt-driven models only (but for the penultimate S-Z1, 1983).
