Sleipner System

The reference model.

The turntable with the bearingless floating platter. The bearing is the "heart" in all turntable constructions - and the Achilles. Achilles because in a traditional bearing, the weight of the platter causes enormous pressure on the bearing - and hereby generate mechanical noise.

 

The "heart" of Sleipner is both supported and centred by air. Simply the 9,2kg. platter is floating: No mechanical contact - no bearing noise!

Sleipner is available with vacuum hold down.

 

The name Sleipner

In the Nordic Mythology, Sleipner is the magical eightlegged steed, and the first of all horses.
His name means smooth or gliding. Loki, who gave birth to Sleipner, gave this eight-legged steed to Odin, the supreme of the Nordic Gods, telling him that the horse was the swiftest on earth - and could bear Odin over sea and through the air.
