The McIntosh MT-10 marries classic McIntosh glass front panel cosmetics with serious mechanics to create a unique, ready-to-play LP solution. With tracking force, anti-skate and cartridge position preset at the factory the McIntosh MT-10 delivers high performance LP playback with minimal set up.
The turntable base is comprised of a damped sandwich of stainless steel and acrylic plate; a unique combination of dissimilar materials that provides a resonance-free foundation for the tonearm. A massive, 12 pound, 2 ½” thick acrylic platter spins on a cushion of air, elevated by a custom magnetic bearing.
A regulated power supply drives a super-quiet, brushless, Swiss DC motor. Unmatched accuracy is derived from a new electronic speed control that references 1,595 strobe markings per revolution of the platter. Speed adjustments of 331/3, 45, or 78 RPM are made from the front panel and are registered on a blue, backlit McIntosh meter.
A custom tonearm features a rigid, dural-aluminum arm-tube gimbaled in two sapphire (horizontal) and two ceramic (vertical) bearings for the least possible friction. A .5mV moving coil cartridge is included, and features an ebony body with an elliptical stylus.
Tracking force, anti-skate and cartridge position are all preset. The MT-10 is ready to use just moments after unpacking
The MT10 tone arm features a specially dampened Dural-Aluminum armtube. The light weight and rigidity of the tone arm is an ideal mate for the custom, medium-weight moving coil cartridge.
The platter is CNC machined from a special silicone acrylic material to a weight of twelve pounds and a thickness of two and one-half inches for near immunity to bass-robbing resonances.
The MT10 Turntable Platter rotates on a special magnetic bearing; literally suspended on a cushion of air for near friction-free performance.
