I disagree with many concussions and methods that those guys use but still I appreciate that people took the task and tied to attach is as good as they know of:

“After carefully reviewing the marketplace and the technology currently being used we believed it was time for a new approach. The technology did not, in our opinion, properly address several key performance elements. It was apparent that considerable advances were easily possible.”

Although many comments they make in their White Paper document (I recommend to read) are absurd:

“The single most critical element of any turntable’s performance is the platter speed control. The more accurate the platter speed control the more accurate the frequency reproduction of the turntable.”
