The Thalie comes from an artistic activity and not an industrial one. This turntable is build with the minimum amount of parts; each of it has a clearly defined role and is fully optimized to perform perfectly the purpose it was designed to fulfill. The Thalie was designed with tree main objectives: 1: Perfect reliability. 2: To reach the best sound quality. 3: To have the audience dream. All choices for the development of the Thalie were guided in order to fulfill these three objectives. Only four rotating mechanical parts: the motor, the pulley, the tray on its axis and the bearing. The reduced number of mechanical parts and the overall simplicity of the whole unit give an excellent reliability. Also in order to ensure maximum reliability, the dragging is done by a synchronous motor. Thanks to it, no electronic speed control is required. On the Thalie this control is completely mechanical and is regulated by the electrical network frequency which is very stable. Heavy building with its granite pedestal which weight 50Kg and 20Kg for the platter, both are cut and machined to provide maximum protection against resonances that may interfere the musical restitution.
