Because timing is everything...

A great orchestra depends on a great conductor to keep the note of every instrument playing exactly at the right moment. The pluck of a string, or the trill of a flute just a fraction of a beat off can ruin a performance. The emotion that touches the soul of the audience depends on this precision.

It was with this precision in mind, that the Timeline was born.

As an instrument designed to keep the fi nest of turntables running at exactly the correct speed, there is simply no equal. With a time-base accuracy of 2 parts per million, the Timeline is the very definition of precision.

The Timeline flashes its laser at precisely 33 1/3 (or 45) times per minute. If your turntable is rotating at exactly the correct speed, the dot is stretched into a line segment that is projected to the same place on every revolution. If, however, your turntable is too fast, the projected line segment will drift in a clockwise direction. If too slow, into a counter-clockwise direction. Adjust your turntable speed accordingly. The Timeline will also reveal any loading effects of stylus dragging forces.

The Timeline has also been designed to serve as an indispensable record weight that will effectively dampen the vinyl, providing quieter playback. Its machined Delrin lower section couples into the vinyl. That interface section is then tightly constrained by the rigidity of the machined aluminum upper section. Playback will be signifi cantly improved by leaving the Timeline in place during playback.

You have a very nice and elegant device.

Hi Ron,

It arrived today in great shape.

After about 30 seconds I had it running and adjusting the speed of my platter.

It is every bit as good as I had hoped.

You have a cool video on your website which I viewed a couple weeks back. It looked like a "fat Bob JR Transrotor" table.  The interesting point was the DC speed error when the torque disturbance was increased by application of the stylus.

You have a very nice and elegant device.

Thanks,

Mike.

A great device....congratulations.

I have been a big advocate of the Timeline on some threads on Audiogon.

Many folks tried the Timeline and doubted that ANY turntable could maintain its accuracy according to the Timeline.....so I made this video and posted it to YouTube to prove that....not only could my 30 year old DD Victor TT-101 maintain accuracy and consistency on its own.......but also was unaffected by 'Stylus Drag' even with 3 cartridges ploughing the grooves.

A great device....congratulations.
