GrooveMaster Vintage Direct



The PBN-DP3 is based on the Denon DP3000. Though this is the basic model of the series, it is brimming with custom refinements in both engineering and artistry. The DP3 features the amazingly accurate ACservo motor that operates at 99.9% accurate speed – plus Servo-controlled Direct Drive. The turntable comes complete with a Jelco SA750 (B) tone arm. The PBN-DP Series come nearly “plug-and-play” ready, with only minor hook-ups required. Though incorporating vintage parts, the GrooveMaster Vintage Direct players are rebuilt from the ground up and should perform brilliantly for decades to come. We welcome all inquiries.

Strobo Pattern Stability: In the case of a turntable driven by a conventional synchronous motor, both motor driving and neon lamp lighting have the same power source. Therefore, on such a turntable, the strobo pattern does not run even if the rotation of the turntable is fluctuated according to variation of power frequency.



The form-aged solid hardwood plinths are custom-made from individually selected planks. The three precision-cut layers are glued together so the grain of each is angled at 120 degrees, providing resonance-free stability as well as spectacular grain patterns. We work with a variety of woods including cherry, maple, walnut and oak. The deep, liquid finishes use only state-of-the-art materials. Each plinth is a unique work of art in itself.
