Below is an extract from the manufacturers website:
"Stabi S is a compact turntable with a design approach normally found only in much more expensive models. Its unique shape and construction of solid brass rods, provide an extremely rigid connection to platter, bearing and tonearm support. There is no flat plate to resonate and transmit vibrations, only solid brass rods 50mm in diameter. A second brass rod provides stability and the two are clamped together in a T shape. The motor is housed independently in its own tower which dampens vibration of the motor itself. The motor housing is machined from solid brass. A ground, flat belt provides drive from the motor pulley to the sub-platter.
The bearing is of highly polished, fine grain carbon steel with a one point contact, while the bearing sleeve is of a resin/textile material which has excellent damping, non resonant properties. With a mat on top and rubber insert underneath, the platter provides a stable non-resonant platform for records which, in addition, can be clamped.The turntable can accommodate various tonearms by the use of different brass bases and it allows for VTA adjustment on any tonearm mounted. An acrylic cover is included to protect the platter and tonearm while reflecting the turntable's original shape."
"Why the big gap between Stabi S and Stabi Reference? We have asked ourselves this question too! The answer becomes clear when you actually see and hear the Stabi S. Franc Kuzma has done such a brilliant job of engineering this turntable that it is extremely difficult to better it at any price up to the Stabi Reference. Hence your money is better spent in purchasing a state of the art cartridge or tonearm than spending more on the turntable. The competition at this price point uses cheap materials to keep the price down. Franc does not do this, the materials are top quality and so is the sound."
