Are you planning a model with a motor in the future?

I saw this unit in operation last Saturday, it  very successfully produces excellent results and the state of the records before and after were like cheese & chalk. It does a very good job indeed!

Thank you guys the two gentleman responsible for this wonderful unit are not on the forum but I do relay the messages to them on a daily basis.

A motorized unit is already available I just donít have stock yet, retail on that unit is R 6950.00

They are launching their range of turntables as well they are truly magnificent units also locally produced entirely even the interchangeable tonearms...watch this space!

I am in the market for an RCM so I'd like to know more about the motorised unit please.

How loud are these units when the vacuum is engaged (on a scale of VPI 16.5 to Nessie)?
Is there a reverse function for the motor?

Tell us more about the turntables

Tell us more about the turntables
+1

Also ask them to try release something affordable but good If possible.

Or perhaps they should actually run a poll and in theory tell people what they are planning and take some advise , perhaps that will ensure a better chance of actual sales ?

Hi Michon,

The motorized unit will retail for R 6995.00 it will have the same design as the manual unit except an additional switch for motor function. The switch will be a three stage switch: Off, Clockwise, Anti Clockwise and rotate at 10 rpm.

I will get back to loudness request asap..

Out of interest, why the anti clockwise setting?

No scientific reason, it does suggest better cleaning by having two directions of attacking the particles/dust/fingerprints/ :cr@p:

If it does not have an electric motor, how does the vacuum operate?
Title: Re: Acoustic Reference RCM manual vacuum.
Post by: Family_Dog on January 11, 2019, 11:45:26 AM
It has a vacuum cleaner with its own motor, but no turntable motor.

F_D is correct...and there is also another model that is motorised!

Two models both with 1000watt vacuum:
1. Manual rotatation
2. Motorised rotation

Hi there

Would there be any difference in performance/cleaning/etc. between the manual and the motorised version? I assume that they're exactly the same just that the manual one requires you to turn the record manually but was wondering if there is any other difference or if the motorised rotation in any way benefits (I know this may sound silly...)

@Carnajo Apologies fr the massive late reply I did not get a notification on this post unfortunately.

I do not think there is a difference in quality of cleaning between the two methods of operation. The auto is preset at the ideal speed for the vacuum to work correctly and the manual is obviously control by the operator so one might argue that the auto version will be more consistent at best.

Thanks
