More Information about STD 305 Belt-Drive Turntable Sprung Chassis

Strathclyde STD305M

The Strathclyde Transcription Developments (STD) 305M was manufactured in Scotland during the late 1970's. It is a very well thought out and very well made turntable. The plinth is a heavy solid unit weighing 13kg and is constructed using an aluminium extrusion with an outer-shell of "brushed" aluminium.

Combined with the black decorative striping and grey perspex dust cover, the appearance is quite beautiful. The plinth's underside is coated with a vibration damping material, (an idea of reducing audio feedback), and incorporates a floating sub-chassis with a four point foam damped suspension.

The platter is 300mm in diameter, machined from solid aluminium plate and is "grooved" on its outer edge. Correct suspension adjustment is achieved by lining up the "grooved" platter's edge with the plinth's top plate.

This turntable is belt driven by a 16 pole motor offering two speeds; 33rpm/45rpm, changeable by manually moving the belt on the stepped motor pulley.
