Its very different approach to the Ters rim drive and in my view a lot better (yes I have heard the Verus drive and was impressed with it)
I have seen how this TT has developed over the years and I consider it to be one of the finest TT built.It a good bit better than my last TT which was a rim drive superscoutmaster
The table is not for everyone, but simple to set up
The motor different they both give great sounds nothing wrong with the Verus but the Trans fi motor is not using a lot of electronics to control the speed of the motor.
They are similar principles but different implementation, the TH Whaites rim drive is borrowing a lot of ideas developed from the Salvation
I heard the Verus Rim drive on a early prototype Salvation and the new motor and I would perfer the new motor (but as I said they both performed at a very high level)I also heard the Verus Rim drive on a superscoutmaster but that all
Hi Garybx, I've just bought the Salvation w. Terminator linear tracking arm. It's a match made in Heaven. I've just opened a thread 'Trans Fi Audio direct rim drive turntable' which I hope can answer your qs. The only downsides are that setup is pretty critical. It really benefits from being absolutely level, and the arm, being air bearing is v. fussy wrt unencumbered air supply via the hose from the pump.
Other than that it's all positives. It totally trounces my belt drive of 12 years (Michell Orbe/SME V), with extended articulate bass, clarity of sound due to minimal time smear, clear mids and really ethereal treble.
