Allright, This one should be pretty cut and dry. Your favorite TT style, in general terms- 1) The direct drive, controlled by a center-mount (or close to) motor, where the platter is hooked through a series of intricate gears mounted over the motor and directly in the center of the turntable. 2) The rim drive/idler wheel turntable- a TT that utilizes an idler wheel that presses/locks up against a turntable's inner rim to spin the platter. 3) The belt drive/endless TT. This unit runs on a rubber belt, which wraps around a motor shaft (the motor usually isolated in some way from the platter), and then to a recessed inner rim of the turntable platter. So, what say ye, and why?
