To extract more performance, You could add a Tube based Class A Power Supply.
At first blush, it seems a crazy idea to use vacuum tubes for a low-voltage turntable power supply. So why do we do it? We found that the vacuum in the rectifier tubes not only isolates their plates from the cathodes, but also the power line from the drive circuitry.Because of this the »RöNt« works like a high class power line filter for our turntables. The purification of the mains noticeably improves the sound in terms of clarity, openness and spaciousness.  
We changed the circuit to a single ended class A topography which gives a smoother and more transparent performance. The »RöNt II« delivers a stabilized output voltage of 24..25VDC, the output is short circuit proof.  
The tube supply utilizes two high current low resistance pentodes (PL36) and one full wave rectifier (5AR4). All tubes are made for long life. Secondary AC voltage is rectified by the full wave rectifier and fed to both of the output pentodes via a line choke reducing even more mains noise. The output voltage is stabilized by controlling the output pentode stage.

For start up, the motor of our direct drive turntables needs about 500mA, the motor of our belt drive turntables needs about 150mA. Since we wanted to supply the benefits of our famous and unique »RöNt« for our direct drive models as well, we developed a new and more powerful circuit that meets the demands of all our models.

The motor that forms the heart of the direct drive turntable is based on the coreless direct drive motor that was developed for the SL-1200G launched in 2016, and further improved. The double coil twin rotor-type coreless direct drive motor that was newly developed for this purpose had coils on both sides for 12-pole, 18-coil drive, with high enough torque to drive the heavyweight-class platter (approximately 7.9-kg). Offsetting the coils on both sides 60 degrees improved the rigidity of the substrate, suppressing fine vibrations and reducing self-inductance. These improvements achieved stable rotation of 0.015% wow and flutter or less, which is considered to be the measurement limit. Also, the thrust bearings supporting the heavyweight-class platter use a special engineering plastic to provide both high rigidity and reliability.

The technologies acquired through the development of the SL-1200 Series and the high-end SL-1000R model were lavishly inserted into the motor drive unit, a key part of the turntable. The motor exclusively tunes the single-rotor, coreless direct drive motor adopted by the SL-1200GR in order to read the high rotation accuracy and high-precision signals of the record. Optimal motor control is conducted for the inertial mass of the two-layer structure platter on which the vinyl record is placed with deadening rubber on the entire back surface to eliminate unwanted resonance in the aluminium die-cast platter to eliminate the rotation irregularity called cogging. The aluminium die-cast chassis is rigidly integrated with a special material consisting of ABS mixed with glass fiber to achieve a two-layer construction. The insulator is comprised of a spring and rubber to provide optimal vibration-damping characteristics. The tonearm is a static-balance universal S-shape tonearm, another Technics tradition. By adopting a high-precision bearing using the same gimbal suspension construction and machined housing as the SL-1200 Series, high initial sensitivity is achieved. In addition, reliability has been improved by incorporating a removable power cable and gold-plated terminals, which have less sound quality degradation, for the PHONO and LINE terminals.
Complete Turntable with a Built-in Phono Equalizer and Cartridge
Complete Turntable with a Built-in Phono Equalizer and Cartridge In order to enjoy playing analogue records more comfortably, the SL-1500C features a built-in phono equalizer and bundled cartridge. There is no need to separately prepare either one, making it easy to link with a wide range of audio equipment. The shield structure of the built-in phono equalizer suppresses the effects of external noise and noise from the power supply. It is also equipped with a switch to turn the LINE output off when it is not being used. The turntable has been designed to thoroughly shut-out adverse effects to the PHONO output. The dedicated power supply for the PHONO output terminal is isolated from the power supply for the LINE output terminal, and has been designed to prioritize sound quality by minimising the wiring of the PHONO signal. The isolated terminals also prevent wiring mistakes. An Ortofon 2M RED cartridge, which is highly acclaimed as an MM cartridge, has been selected for the bundled cartridge. Combining this high-quality cartridge with the performance of the SL-1500C will maximise the sound quality of vinyl records.
MM Phonostage included

EAT C Sharp Analog Turntable with matching Phono stage and cartridges.

The C- SHARP
Thanks to new materials like Carbon Fibre and Termoplastic Elastomer Eat was designing a new superflat table. The low profil base chassis is made out of highest density MDF. Because of its flatness this base sits perfectly stable on any surface! On this base the ultra low noise motor is mounted as well as 10 damping feets out of energy absorbing TPE (Termoplastic Elastomers = Hightech high energy absorbing damping material). The cone shape TPE columns carry a SANDWICH subchassis out of Carbon Fibre and MDF composite with ultimate rigidity.
The stiffness is important to be a super rigid base for the tonearm/cartridge and bearing/platter as there must be 100 % no moving tolerance between the distance of the groove and the tracking cartridge. All the rumble of the platter / bearing is directed in the TPE columns. On opposite the TPE avoid that any unwanted energy of motor and surface or surrounding vibration leads to the subchassis or even to the tonearm cartridge.
The bearing is an oversized inverted with a inert, resonance free ceramic ball on top Around the bearing we set a super heavy 700g mass point which sucks up all energy arround.The stiff carbon subchassis helps to transport all vibration in this mass point. So vibrations are transferred in heat The platter intself is from a special alloy of very inert aluminium and is also damped by TPE inserts-It from 2 parts a subplatter and a mainplatter to keep it flat although having very high mass and kinetic energie.
The belt is made from special anti-static rubber. It's glued and then polished.
The tonearm itself is a completely new design which combines all advantages of a unipivot arm with a cardan design. The uni-pivot in the middle only helps bearing to be less loaded. The traditional Cardan bearing insures high stabilty and easy ness of use with very low friction. Also inside the tonearm is a special silicon-based grease to damp the tonearm / cartridge resonances by more then 50%
The tube is again out of carbon , super stiff and rigid. The headshell we made out of special light and rigid aluminium to get a perfect combination of the advantages of carbon with the better inner damping of the aluminium as well as the possibility of more tighter mounting of Highend MC cartridges.
An external DC powersupply unit with an AC Generator creates new total clean power for the motors . For sure you have also 33 /45 electronic switching.
A HIGHEND solution as the whole table.

EAT Prelude : In Stock $1195
High end turntable with timeless design. A genuinely affordable deck with neutral sound.
    Rigid MDF chassis
    Heavy weight aluminium platter
    Precision diamond-cut pulley
    Belt drive principle
    2M Red cartridge
    Carbon tonearm
    DC power supply for ultimate speed stability
    Dust cover included
EAT is acclaimed for true high-end turntables that drive physics to the theoretical maximum. With the considered use of mass, EAT has waged a war on unwanted vibration, resonance and colouration of the sound. Now EAT offers for the first time a deck which is genuinely affordable but able to provide neutral sound.
To reach the price target, there have to be compromises, but the basic principles remain the same: Only a heavy-weight platter can give you the correct speed and precision. We use a low tolerance (0.01) polished stainless steel bearing in a soft bronze bushing, to ensure a super silent and smooth movement. This is the same base material as in our high-end designs. Supplied with the turntable is a pre-fitted Ortofon 2M Red cartridge as well as an acrylic lid for protection from dust.
The elegant piano lacquer finish fits into every home or type of decor. We also offer the Prelude with the EAT iconic green motor and belt.
Our plinth is made out of dense MDF, protected by eight layers of lacquer which produce a luxurious look and finish. This is a first in a price category where the norm is a particle board chassis with glued-on veneer. For the motor, we avoid a mass-loaded design. Instead, we have a free-standing motor with no connection to the board; this is the only way to ensure no motor vibrations are passed on.
Most of our customers making purchases in this price range will use an MM (moving-magnet) cartridge. To address this, we went chose a lightweight, ultra-stiff and resonance-free carbon tonearm tube, which is cast in a single piece. We deliberately avoided a heavier metal headshell, as a lightweight design simply creates more ideal resonant frequencies with an MM cartridge.
Equally unusual at this price is the bearing block for the tonearm and the counterweight. The mass bearing block behaves like an energy sink for all resonances from the cartridge, as well as the low frequencies from the deck. The counterweight implements an anti-resonator damper to reduce the amplitude of the natural tonearm/cartridge resonance.
We have chosen one of the "best buy" cartridges available today, a perfect partner for Prelude. The discerning listener will recognise that the Prelude tonearm elevates the 2M Red to a completely new level of performance.
We know that all low mass turntables tend to sound boomy because of the stored energy and vibrations, especially when compared to costlier, more massive designs. The Prelude will surprise listeners through its astonishing lack of colouration and exceptional dynamics. It is the perfect starting point for assembling a true audiophile hi-fi system.
