Heed Audio Orbit 2 MKII, external turntable power supply
The speed accuracy and stability of many belt drive turntables driven by a synchronous motor depends entirely upon the quality/consistency of frequency delivered by the domestic mains supply. However, mains frequency at 50Hz leaves much to be desired since it is subject to fluctuation, distortion, and other innumerable problems prior to reaching
your listening room.
The Heed Orbit 2 off-board turntable power supply offer a sophisticated solution to stabilise and improve any AC syncronous motor drive, elevating your deck's sonic performance to startling new levels of musicality.
The Orbit 2 makes it possible to switch speed between 33 1/3 and 45 RPM via one single, elegant push-button in lieu of the rather fussy manual speed change arrangement of many turntables (removing the platter and shifting the belt on the motor pulley time and time again.)
It regulates your turntable's motor drive via an intricate quadrature-quartz speed generator, providing unsurpassed speed accuracy and pitch stability. Packed into the hefty shielded steel casework (protecting the units from electromagnetic interference and vibration) with black perspex fascia are two mains-filtering transformers, and a high-current amplification circuit to assure that the power passed onto your motor is silky-smooth and constant, with no fluctuation and virtually immeasurable distortion.
All told, the resulting sonic performance is previously unknown in this price category. Backgrounds become "blacker", bass gains added depth, and the overall soundstage widens accordingly.
