Canada-based Kronos Audio Products announced the introduction of Sparta, a lower priced edition of its dual platter turntable design. The new dual platter is similar in concept to the more expensive Kronos Limited Edition and Kronos PRO models.
The dual-platters, spinning in opposite directions and driven by separate motors solve the problem of “torsional forces”, that are inherent in typical spring suspended sub platter ‘tables where the sub platter frame rotates in synch with the platter. In other words, as the platter spins, it produces frame movement because no platter, no matter how carefully balanced, is perfectly balanced.
While these torsional forces can be damped, Kronos completely eliminates torsional forces in its suspended designs, thus providing the isolation suspended ‘tables can provide, without the torsional movement downside.
