Primary Control Kinea Direct Drive Turntable

The Primary Control Kinea turntable brings back to the market, low torque direct drive technology and lifts it to new heights.

  • 360mm (14.17″) diameter platter mass with loaded perimeter for increased flywheel effect.
  • Internal construction is of  a five layer compound material.
  • The armboard facilitates use of 9.5 to 13 inch tonearms.
  • 78 rpm is available on request.
  • Dimensions and weight: 600mm x 480mm, 35 Kg.

The Primary Control Kinea Turntable challenges the perception of time and timelessness rather than focusing on fashion or zeitgeist. From inception it is distinctive, developing the blue print from the classical turntable design of our youth. The 360mm diameter oversized platter is reminiscent of early studio and broadcasting transcription turntables but transformed into a modern style.
