Product Description

Desire to design a turntable that is advanced by performance, as well as elegant and compact by dimensions, brought us to Elgar DCX. We named it after English composer Edward Elgar, who was the first composer of classical music to take the gramophone seriously, as well as the composer of our favourite cello concerto – the Cello Concerto in E minor.

Highly rigid main plinth is constructed of two massive blocks machined from solid aluminium, bolted together and damped accordingly, and a 50/10mm diameter aluminium pipe, forming together a T-shaped structure. Employing this kind of design provides perfect balance for the plinth itself, by reducing the Moment of inertia in all three planes (along all three axes) to the Centre of mass, and thus, gaining uniform vibration damping.

Inverted main bearing (identical to one employed in our flagship model, Kubrick DCX) is mounted directly onto the aluminium sub-plinth which is in turn 3-point de-coupled from the main plinth (by means of rubber-cork washers of different diameter) in order to maximize performance and minimize acoustic break through.

The motor assembly, consisting of electronically controlled high quality DC motor optimized for turntable use is mounted onto the main plinth.

The aluminium sub-plinth is designed to accept any tone-arm utilizing SME mounting scheme standard, and additional Acrylic arm boards for Jelco/Linn and Rega/Origin Live type arms are included, along with 6mm high aluminium spacers for right VTA setting.

There are no obvious switches/on-off buttons and/or marks/symbols, yet the left part of the aluminium pipe is actually an on/off and speed selection switch/knob, utilizing the rotary switch with 3 positions, off/33/45. Fine speed adjustment is possible by rotating two small trimmers (one for 33rpm and one for 45rpm) positioned close to the motor and pulley.

The platter, 40mm thick and weighing 3.2kg, is machined from laminated Acrylic to very high accuracy. High-performance rubber-cork mat is supplied as a standard.

The turntable is supported by three small silicone rubber pucks.

Two exchangeable arm-boards (Acrylic made) for 9″ tone-arms are included:
– Rega/Origin Live arm-board – tone-arm pivot to spindle distance 222mm
– Jelco arm-board – tone-arm pivot to spindle distance 214mm

Acrylic (Perspex) dust cover, the SA cover is supplied as a standard.

Elgar DCX can be specified and delivered with high performance Jelco SA250 tone-arm fitted.
