The Dais turntable is considered Tom Fletcher’s finest production turntable to date. The Dais incorporates the 7/8″ thick Graphite Heavy kit, the 45 lb. base platter and the oil pumping bearing found on the Anna Log as standard. The oil bath bearing provides a continuous oil coating along the entire bearing and thrust pad by pulling a thin coat of oil between the spindle bearing as the platter rotates. The Dais can accommodate up to two tonearms between 9″ to 12″ in length. The Dais comes standard with the Wave Mechanic Power Supply as well.
Nottingham Analogue has always been concerned with what people stand their turntables on, especially glass and spikes, so the base board for the Dais consists of a relatively thin platform base under which there is a 90% covering of damping material. When this damping material is put onto the chosen surface there is more of a ‘marriage’ between the turntable and surface.
In addition to a more robust version of the oil pumping bearing, the Dais incorporates a gravity spun iron platter. This platter is actually spun while casting to eliminate even the tiniest air pockets thereby ensuring consistency throughout the platter.
The Dais also includes the Wave Mechanic power supply that provides ultra-stable AC wave form to drive the motor. Just looking at the Dais, its most striking design feature is its simplicity. It almost vanishes except for the platter.
Dais has a 20+ kg gravity spun cast iron platter topped with the graphite ‘mat’. The bronze bearing has the carbide/thrust design which allows the continuous flow of bearing oil between the spindle shaft and bearing, this, along with the special grade stainless steel spindle housing give great stability and is a wonderful platform for the vinyl record. Can accommodate up to two tonearms (9”, 10” or 12”). The Dais comes as standard with its own power supply. Platter colour, black or silver, base colour black gloss. (Colour options available at extra cost).
