Ultra Tonearm: Custom-developed and
manufactured in the USA, the MoFi UltraDeck+'s 10" Ultra tonearm uses smooth,
high-quality ball bearings for low friction in the vertical and horizontal plane
so all you hear is what is in the grooves. Cardas Audio wiring maintains signal
purity from the headshell leads all the way through to the high-quality,
gold-plated RCA connectors.
UltraTracker Cartridge (MM): The UltraTracker
Cartridge (MM) features a V-Twin dual-magnet generator that mirrors the layout
of the cutting head that originally makes a record's grooves. Employing two
low-mass, powerful magnets aligned in a V formation parallel with the record
grooves, UltraTracker features excellent tracking ability.
- Well-Damped Billet Aluminum Body:
The well-damped billet aluminum body controls resonances for tight, accurate
bass reproduction. UltraTracker delivers finely tuned wide-bandwidth audio,
with extension at both frequency extremes and no smearing of detail.
- Nude-Elliptical Diamond Stylus: By using a
nude-elliptical diamond stylus, UltraTracker easily tracks complex dynamic
passages. You'll hear superb detail and experience musical emotionalism that
will send shivers down your spine.
This turntables come with the tracking force preset by
the factory. Using this predetermined factory setting (indicated by the
pre-installed yellow tape) prevents the need for a force gauge. Just place
the counterweight properly on the back of the tonearm (directly behind the
pre-installed yellow tape) and you are done. No need to balance or perform
any other steps for tracking weight. Do not remove the yellow tape until the
counterweight is installed and you have tested playback.
If the yellow tape is removed before installing the
counterweight, then the factory setting is lost and a force gauge (like item
must be used. The cartridge requires the tracking force be set between 1.8g
and 2.2g. Using a tracking force gauge (like item number
is necessary because the counter weight has no adjustment markings.
Isolated AC Synchronous Motor: The 300 RPM stepped-pulley
AC motor provides excellent speed stability for pitch accuracy and rhythmic
drive. The Delrin pulley has two positions for 33-1/3 and 45 RPM speed
selection. Motor vibrations are kept away from the platter and stylus by using
advanced dampening materials that decouple the motor from the rest of the
1.3" Delrin Platter: The UltraDeck+
turntable features a massive 1.3" Delrin platter. The increased mass creates
blacker sonic backgrounds and a lower noise floor. Delrin is a next-generation
polymer developed by Dupont. In the world of audio, Delrin's highly crystalline
structure presents a wonderful impedance match to vinyl records, effectively
grounding unwanted noise and keeping it away from the stylus.
Hardened-Steel Inverted Bearing System: The UltraDeck+'s
hardened-steel inverted bearing system is designed for smooth, quiet rotational
stability. The extremely low tolerance combination of steel, bronze, and
sapphire will provide many years of high-performance playback.
Constrained Layer Dampening: The UltraDeck+ turntable
features an aluminum plate carefully bonded to an MDF body to add mass and
eliminate tonal coloration, maintaining the true sound found on the record.
Anti-Vibration Feet: Any vibration of the stylus that is
not created by the grooves in the record is a distortion that will mask musical
detail. Developed in conjunction with the engineering team at Harmonic
Resolution Systems, the world leader in vibration isolation for audio equipment,
the included MoFi anti-vibration feet isolate the UltraDeck+ turntable from bad
RCA Connections: Connection to the phono input of your
amplifier can be made with connecting cables of your choice through the
turntable's gold-plated stereo RCA phono jacks and grounding screw. The
UltraDeck+ turntable comes supplied with a 49" stereo RCA cable with ground
Note: If your receiver does not have a suitable Phono MM input,
phono pre-amplifier (sold separately) is required to connect the turntable
to your amplifier.
Dust Cover: The MoFi UltraDeck+ comes supplied with a hinged
cover to prevent dust build-up on the turntable.
