The TT Three Reference incorporates what we consider to be the ultimate solutions to most of the solvable problems in vinyl replay. It has three speed settings, 33, 45 and, unusually for a turntable in this price range, 78 RPM. All speed settings have adjustment, the 78 setting over a range from about 60 to over 120 RPM in order to play the many older 78s that were not cut at a true 78 RPM.

The TT-Three Reference platter is light, highly inert and made from Lexan (bullet proof glass or polycarbonate) which has virtually no reflective or resonant storage problems, it weighs less than 900 grams and therefore has ultrafast recovery time, add to that the fact that polycarbonate has one of the highest energy absorption coefficients known to Man and you will see why this is the only proper solution combined with a strong drive system.

The TT-Three Reference are a three point suspended design. Unlike other systems it is centred at the bearing, which is also the epicentre of the motors' inertia. This completely avoids the most common problem in suspended turntables where the motors and suspension are misaligned and as a result generate a resonance as the platter moves between the centre of the motor and the centre of the suspension. A properly dimensioned three point suspension is a natural 18dB per octave third order mechanical filter. The resonant frequency of the TT-Three Reference is set at 2.4 Hz; so low that it makes the turntable virtually impervious to outside interference with a minus 55dB immunity at below 20Hz. To further enhance stability, as well as ensure the simplest set-up, the sub-chassis has three wings. One locates the arm in the conventional position on the far right, while the other two hold mass balancing weights – each an exact weight equivalent of an arm + cartridge mass. Each suspension spring is therefore loaded equally, removing the need ever to adjust the suspension.

The TT-Three Reference can be ordered to accommodate one, two or three tone arms of two types only: the Audio Note™ ARM Three and the Audio Note™ AN-1s. We consider most other tone arms unsuitable because they are not designed in a way that leads energy away from the cartridge, down the arm tube through the bearings and arm pillar into the sub-chassis, to be dissipated there.

The main frame and suspended system on the TT-Three Reference is machined from aircraft grade aluminium, the most ductile and therefore naturally inert aluminium available, making it perfect for dealing with the wideband energy generated by the stylus tracking the groove and the speakers energising the playback environment. The base of the turntable can be ordered in finishes to match most Audio Note™ loudspeakers.

Why is this item collection only?

This is because some items require more setting up than others (e.g. multi room systems) or have advanced settings.

To ensure you get the most from your equipment we need to take you through the process of setting it up correctly.

Sometimes the equipment is simply not suitable for shipping (e.g. glass stands that have been built up).

Simply reserve your product today and then arrange to pick it up from your nearest Audio-T store.

Items showing as "In Stock" are within the Audio T group and we may need additional time to transfer to your selected branch.
