The direct drive turntable is since years a highly underestimated technology. After the market was flushed with tons of cheap direct drives high torque turntables in the seventies and eighties, this drive method almost completely disappeared from the High End market.
Quite wrongly, as we think.
The PrimaryControl Kinea Turntable brings the direct drive low torque technology back on stage and lifts it to new heights.

Right away from scratch it appeared to be distinctly, that we will orientate our blue print to the classical turntable design of our youth.
