Debuted at the 2018 Munich High End show the Stabi R is the newest, most compact, and versatile addition to the legendary Stabi family. Hand crafted from a solid block of aluminium the Stabi R features an internal (built in) electronic power supply driving a DC motor with a proprietary, non flexible drive belt.
The main platter is a constrained three layer design of aluminium – acrylic - aluminium; providing the rigidity of aluminium and the anti vibration properties of acrylic, further maximizing the damping effect of the platter itself. Incredibly; the Stabi R is also able to accommodate up to four tonearms around the main platter.
The non-metal, hard resin bearings sit atop a polished ruby ball bathed in oil and supported on a special low noise compound material, further eliminating resonance and minimizing friction.
