三、High-fidelity Sound Quality

Vinyl records have always been loved by music lovers for their unique sound quality charm. The R517 is equipped with high-fidelity sound quality, and each track can be presented with excellent sound effects and realistic tones, allowing you to re-feel the charm of classic music. The unique moving magnet disk device ensures that the stylus is in stable contact with the record, bringing more realistic and full-bodied sound quality performance.

The high-fidelity sound quality of the vinyl record player R517 depends on the following factors:

1) The manufacturing quality of the record player: R517 adopts precise mechanical structure and high-quality MDF material to ensure that the stylus is in stable contact with the record, and reduces vibration and noise, thereby ensuring high-fidelity sound quality.

2) Stylus, tonearm and turntable: The stylus is an important component that converts the grain of a record into a sound signal. R517 uses high-fidelity Audio-Technica ATN3600L stylus using high-quality materials and precise processing to ensure accurate reading of record information. The S-shaped tonearm design uses more solid carbon fiber material, so that the tonearm can stably maintain the correct position of the stylus on the record. Aluminum turntables are more stable than turntables made of other materials such as plastic or rubber. Its heavier mass helps reduce vibration and resonance, keeping the record spinning steadily, thus providing more accurate and stable sound quality performance.

3) Rotation speed: The standard rotation speed of the R517 is 33⅓ and 45 revolutions per minute (rpm). The turntable is equipped with a powerful movement capable of accurately maintaining these two speeds to ensure accurate performance of pitch and sound quality.

4) The sound system of the record player: A high-fidelity vinyl record player is usually equipped with a higher quality built-in sound system, such as speakers, amplifiers, etc. R517 has a built-in 30-watt (full-range speaker 2x10w, tweeter 2x5w) stereo speaker. The high-quality audio system can better restore the music signal on the record, thus providing more realistic sound quality.
