Has anyone seen or used this controller: http://www.9tci.com ?

It looks rather interesting. For about the same price as the current ADS ($1250) it seems to do a lot more (dual phase, tachometer feedback, two motors, crystal controlled). I wonder if anyone here has first-hand experience with this power supply?


Thanks for the link. Look to be a well thought out design. Is this a Mark Kelly design?

I think it was done by Stephen Tuckett (he also makes turntables under the Number 9 name):

It reminds me of the Denon DP-1800 turntable from many years ago.

Intriguing. Not cheap, but intriguing. People with older 10W motors would have to stick with the ADS or SDS (or Eagle, if they could find one), but most of the current lineup are all 7W, so most VPI users would be golden. I'm not sure of the value of the higher precision calculations over the VPI or Phoenix PSUs, though, as even stable platters have a good +-0.003 RPM bobble (fluctuation). Unless the auto-adjustment is smart enough with averaging the measured speed to find the target speed, I don't see a lot of value in the more complicated math processing.

Nice site and nice product. Didn't see a 'Buy Now' button. Is it available?

Yeah, the whole Mark Levinson project really set us back on our project time frame. The Voyager almost missed it's launch completely and the next level ADS totally got pushed to the back. Good news is we learned a lot and have improved our technology and as a company from the experience so the delay might end up being all the better in the end :)
