NEW HORIZON GD129/NH91 Draaitafel



New Horizon Series 100 modellen GD129/NH91
Nieuw aan het New Horizon firmament is een doorontwikkeling van de GD121 die GD129 is gedoopt. Wat het meest in het oog springt, zijn de verschillende af werkingen in licht en donker hout, naast de bestaande zwarte uitvoering. Het zal misschien alleen de oplettende vinylliefhebber opvallen, maar de toonarm is volledig vernieuwd en door New Horizon zelf gefabriceerd. Deze NH91 toon - arm is nog steeds recht, maar nu 9 inch in lengte en gemaakt van Alumide®, een aluminium versterkt polymeer met een enorme stijfheid, hetgeen de klank en werking van de toonarm ten goede komt. Zelfs azimuth en antiskating kunnen worden ingesteld, hetgeen uniek is voor draaitafels in deze prijsklasse. De stijlvol vormgegeven behuizing is een enkele 25 mm hoge gelamineerde sokkel van resonantie-arm hout. Deze sokkel is uitgevoerd met drie brede, massieve stelvoeten van natuurrubber wat stabiele en loodrechte opstelling op elk oppervlak mogelijk maakt. De 12 mm hoge transparante (acryl) draaischijf weegt een respectabele 1050 gram en is voorzien van een groef die aflopen van de snaar onmogelijk maakt. De aandrijving geschiedt middels een AC synchroonmotor die de noodzakelijke energie via een ronde siliconen snaar naar de draaischijf overbrengt. Om te wisselen van 33 naar 45 tpm volstaat het simpelweg omleggen van de snaar. De ontkoppeling van de motor wordt met vier afgestemde veren bereikt. De GD129 meet 450 x 365 mm (bxd) en wordt geleverd inclusief stofkap.

Model GD129
The 129 is a beautiful 100% Made in Italy turntable. Oh yes, the 129 is the new turntable completely made in Italy. The exclusive design and the availability of three modern finishes make it contemporary and able to meet the expectations of the most demanding. This model adopts for the first time the New Horizon tonearm realized respecting the basic principles of the philosophy: to face the problem, to analyze all the aspects, to simplify the solution and to create something unique and effective. An easy turntable with sound as a great protagonist .

Synchronous AC motor
The turntable pulsating heart is the compact 24VAC synchronous motor whose main feature is its extremely regular rotation, independent from the variations of the mains voltage, given that its speed depends on the mains frequency. The high torque and the rotation speed of 500 rpm actively contribute to the regularity and fluidity of the plate rotation.

Mechanical suspension
129 is a set of mechanical parts in action. The largest internal source of noise and vibrations is the motor that must be isolated as much as possible from all other parts of the turntable. The engine insulation in New Horizon turntables is made by an exclusive mechanical suspension system. Through precision steel springs, calibrated on the suspended weight of the motor and the pulley, the oscillation transmission to the plinth is efficiently blocked.

Belt drive
The transmission of the motion to the plate is obtained by a special belt in natural rubber. The choice of this material ensures an excellent energy transfer and a good decoupling from the vibrations produced by the engine during the operation.

Inverted bearing
One of the strong points in New Horizon turntables is the plate rotation pivot. The perfection of the movement is the result of a accurate project and several prototypes. Today the piece in production has a sturdy inverted bearing structure in three pieces of aluminum and steel that guarantee the maximum “silence” and a very low rotation friction.

9'' Arm NH91
The NH 91 is a 9″ straight cardanic arm entirely designed and built in New Horizon laboratories. Vertical and horizontal movements based on very low tolerance ball bearings and hand assembly ensure the best coupling of components. It is the result of continuous research and passion that pushes us incessantly to offer a fantastic product.

Plinth HD
129 is a rigid-base turntable. It is essential that the base, or plinth, is able to keep stable the fixing of the other parts of the apparel and to stand opposite to the transmission of vibrations and resonances: our choice at New Horizon is the compressed recycled wood pulp and artificial resins. This material is extremely smooth and heavy and its isomorphic composition works much more efficiently than the solid wood.

Methacrylate plate
The appearance is extremely important: on New Horizon turntables there are only laser-cut plates in Crystal Methacrylate. This material with a high specific weight combines the excellent ability to disperse the vibrations kinetic energy, to the elegance of a perfect transparency.

Output on RCA terminals
New Horizon turntables are interfaced in the best way with all your electronics. An excellent insulating material plate accommodates the gold-plated RCA output terminals. The ground connection is not necessary because the 129 has its own internal shielding.
