  • How long does it take for your platter to stop?

    I use two turntables. My belt drive platter stops in about 3 seconds after I turn off the motor - good. My Direct drive however, takes about 10 seconds to stop after I shut off the motor - bad, this is an annoying wait to change /flip records. Is this normal? How long does it take for your platter to stop after turning off the power?

    Addendum: Both turntables start nearly right away (within 2 seconds) when turning the power on.

      Is it a belt drive?

        When you turn it of , the idlerwheel is disconnected and the platter runs free, so it is actually running perfect for at grease bearing unit.
        A oil based unit will run for longer.

          It will only run like this if the bearing is polished to perfection, else there will be resistance in the bearing.

                    do you wait for it to stop , or do you grab the clamp and force it to stop? I don't wait

                      With my LP12, I don't stop it to flip or change records. With no clamp, I just lift the record off the spinning platter. Didn't stop my Rega 2 when I had that, either.

                        I use a clamp with both my tables so I have to wait for a stop

                            Yes and yes. Same holds true for when you start it. It's up to speed before you can get your dick skinners off the button.
