Scheu Das Laufwerk No. 1 (DL No. 1) Turntable

Scheu Das Laufwerk No. 1 Scheu Das Laufwerk No. 1 Scheu Das Laufwerk No. 1

Scheu Analog's Latest Das Laufwerk No. 1 Turntable (DL)

* Model name is subject to change.

 

Accepts from 1 to 3 tonearms

Double-plinth, 30mm thick

45 cm (depth) x 48 cm (width) + Armboards

 

The Scheu Premier MK2 and Premier MK3 turntables are true reference high-end turntables, and have the distinction of replacing many more expensive turntables in our region Singapore.  Properly set up and matched, their performance is outstanding.  The simplicity in design and attention to detail are keys to their high quality.  The Scheu Premier will surely not be a bottleneck when better tonearms and cartridges are mounted later on, and customers have proven this themselves.  As such, they serve as a very good foundation for further upgrades.

 

And now, Scheu Analog introduces their new model in the year 2006, for such users who value a strong foundation for future upgrades.  Accepting from one to three tonearms, it allows users to have various configurations using only one turntable, and will come in black, white, and clear.  For example, one can optimize one tonearm for overall playback, one for mono, one for poor records.  Or one can also have different cartridges or tonearms each with a different sound presentation to suit one's moods.

 

Two new turntables with the distinctive name •Das Laufwerk• (German word for The Turntable) have recently become Scheu Analog•s top-of-the range models. In terms of performance they comfortably exceed the company•s previous top model, the Premier, and represent the beginning of a whole new phase for Scheu Analog.

Conceived as a heavyweight turntable, the Das Laufwerk No. 1 is based on the proven elements of the Premier. Thus it also features the chamber filled with lead shot to reduce resonance and the inverted precision bearing and electronically regulated DC motor with its fine-speed adjustment for 33-1/3 and 45 rpm using a string drive. The material for the shell and the platter, which is 80 mm high and weighs 7.5 kg, both underline the expertise of Scheu Analog in the fashioning of acrylic.

Derived from the Premier Mk3's shell design and optimised for stability and reduction of resonance, the result offers increased flexibility, amongst other things, along with the possibility of using three tone arms of differing lengths. The turntable is seated on steel feet adjustable in height by means of a fine thread that can either be flat or shaped into a spike and are located directly under the bases for the arms.

The choice of finish includes polished black acrylic, polished transparent acrylic or satin-finish colourless acrylic (glazed white), each in conjunction with stainless steel. An acrylic armboard is also supplied as standard. Armboards are also available in brass, aluminium and bronze for a supplementary price.

This new model was manufactured with better production equipment, with a new geometry and a new motor (still using the Premier's motor casing).

 

Some people may say it still looks similar to the Premier.  Yes, it is, as the Premier was the basis of this design.  Nothing new ?  Our answer is that the Premier is a proven solid design, and this new model just takes it a step even further, to push the envelope of its performance to greater heights, at a reasonable price (as always).  That in itself is a notable achievement.

Scheu Das Laufwerk No. 2 ( DL No. 2 / 60er) Turntable

The new flagship of the family.  Plinth in either acrylic or slate.  Slate is a fine-grained, homogeneous, sedimentary rock composed of clay or volcanic ash which has been metamorphosed (foliated) in layers (bedded deposits).  Essentially, it is laminated rock that has the ability to be split into layers.  Read more on slate ...

 

Weighing a total of about 38 kg, this turntable is also a heavyweight, although it uses an entirely different design.

By omitting the lead shot chamber and joining two shell halves, a turntable of unadorned elegance came into being. Since no lead shot could be used to diminish resonance effects, other solutions needed to be found.

This turntable also features three tone arm bases along with the electronically regulated DC motor with its fine speed adjustment and string drive, an 80-mm platter and height-adjustable steel feet in spike or flat format.

•Das Laufwerk• No.2 is available in polished black acrylic and satin-finish colourless acrylic (glazed white). There is also an exclusive version with a slate shell. Armboards for various tone arms are available in acrylic, brass, aluminium or bronze.
