Belts

beltTurntables can be classified into two major classes:  Belt-Drive and Direct-Drive.

Audiophiles prefer Belt-Drive Turntables because they offer rotational stability and isolation of extraneous vibrations.  In a belt-driven turntable, an elastomeric belt connects the motor to the drive mechanism that spins the platter.  The motor is located under and to the side of the platter.  The belt absorbs extraneous vibrations, allowing the stylus to reproduce the sound locked in the grooves without interference.

Just like the belt around your waist, turntable belts age and wear out over time and need to be replaced.  Replacement of a new belt is relatively straightforward.  Replacement belts are cheap and generally universal unless you are seeking out a match for a vintage turntable.  Be sure to check the manufacturer's website for the specifications of your model.
