Harry Weisfeld’s 2012 ‘Classic Direct’ direct drive turntable was an outstanding technical achievement. This award-winning table was loosely based on the VPI Classic Series table technology and included a thick aluminum plinth and armboard and an inverted platter bearing riding on a Peek thrust disc. Combined with a cutting-edge BLDC direct drive motor, the ‘Classic Direct’ was created. The ‘Classic Direct’ provided a stable, solid foundation for the music, allowing the listener to hear deeply into the recorded grooves to the treasures buried with-in!
