Why According to some Turntable extremists Pitch Control and Direct Drive is Sacrilege?
The EMT 950 is a fantastic Turntable - I own one - among dozens of other tables,  in use are only DD tables.  As far as speed accuracy nothing really comes close to the EMT 950 - the Denon DP80 and the DN 308 perhaps.    Heres a small video of the... 
Top ten DD turntables of all time?

Your all welcomeClarification - the 50/60 Hz switch only function is to add capacitance to the motor capacitor nothing else.  And all units are 100V so a step-down transformer is required for long term reliability.  Good ListeningPeter

chaksterThe bottom bearing "holding" plate comes off by removing 3 screws, so its pretty easy. I have added 3 photos on the Systems page for the DD tables.  The last three ones  https://systems.audiogon.com/systems/6431Good ListeningPeter

Chakster  - I use the Boston mat on my DP80 it works great.Another mat that needs investigating is the Acromat from funk firm.As far as using CU mats on the DP80 i don't think its a good idea they are too heavy for the spring suspended inner platt...

I think your confusing the mater - the metal parts of the platter is dual coupled by leaf springs - the mat - the rubber thingy 🤣 has the label relief.The two metal platters are isolated by foam pads around their circumference by foam pads - 6 or ... 
How come Horn + woofer designs are not more popular?
Once you have listened to a properly designed Horn with a State of the art compression driver behind it - there is no way you can listen to a 1"dome tweeter again. :-)https://pbnaudio.com/m25-loudspeaker/Good ListeningPeter

Lewm  The DN308/DP100 Motor is quite a bit larger than the DP80 one.  Ill post a picture of the 308 motor on my systems pageGood listening Peter

Agree with Lewm, the DP80 is a fantastic machine.  The rebuild of the electronic circuit is relatively simple, have done a dozen or more in the past year or so.Some time ago i posted a video showing the speed accuracy of the DP80 playing an entire...

Lewm  I have tried coper mats on the DP80 and the springs (thin metal bands) are not sturdy enough to carry the copper platters unless very thin.  Any mat should be not any larger than the inner spring loaded platter - Denon's original Rubber mat ...

Genesis,The Motor in the DP75 is considerably smaller in the DP75 and the control system simpler, both are excellent machines.The DP75 and DP80 are not suitable for use with a copper mat as the platters are two layer spring loaded the weight of th...
