Belt Drive Technology Brief

About Belt Drive turntables

A Belt Drive turntable is a common type of turntable drive that transmits power through a rubber or synthetic belt that transmits the rotational speed of the motor to the turntable. This design allows the turntable to rotate more smoothly than direct drive, reducing vibration and noise generated by the motor, thereby improving sound quality.


1. Reduce vibration

The belt drive system can effectively reduce the impact of motor vibration on the turntable, making the record rotate more smoothly and improving sound quality.

2. Reduced noise

Belt-driven turntables are generally less noisy and have clearer audio output due to fewer mechanical contact parts.

3. Excellent sound quality

Belt drives generally provide more accurate and transparent sound quality than direct drives, and are more effective at protecting records.


1. Speed changes

The speed of the belt drive may be affected by the tightness and wear of the belt itself, resulting in unstable audio output.

2. Maintenance needs

Belts may become worn or loose and require periodic replacement or adjustment, which may require some additional maintenance cost and labor.

3. Loss of transmission efficiency

Since the belt serves as a transmission medium, it will cause a small loss of energy due to friction and tightness, which may affect the rotation speed and stability of the turntable.

Why Choose Belt Drive Turntables?
