A Direct drive Classic
The PL-300 features Pioneer’s Stable Hanging Rotor DC motor which has a non-rotating motor shaft atop which the platter/motor rotor assembly is balanced at the centre of gravity.
In systems which put the main bearing/pivot point below the whole rotating structure even the tiniest tipping of the axis of shaft and spindle is magnified to result in a slanting/wobbling of the platter something like what airplane (and spacecraft) pilots call yaw.
With ours, yaw is eliminated for out of this world stability.
