The Funk Firm
broke the mould with the Vector turntable, its non-resonant turntable.
The Funk Vector is based on a very simple chassis
made into a curvy shape and with a DC belt drive motor controlled
The ‘Vector’ part of the name refers to the
Vector drive system, which uses two small idler pulleys to
guide the drive belt with the motor pulley. This method of belt
drive balances out the sideways pull from the belt so that
the platter is less inclined to ‘precess’ around the
spindle. A flat belt is used which in principle is more
stable than a round-section belt.
Mounted on the sub-platter is the main
platter, which is made of the Funk’s ‘Achromat’ material.
This foamed plastic material is designed to match the
acoustic impedance of an LP and absorb mechanical vibrations
efficiently due to its irregular structure.
