Brinkmann Oasis Final Edition
Oasis Final Limited Edition
Introduced in 2007, Oasis was Brinkmann’s first Direct Drive Turntable, as well as the first Brinkmann to use the proprietary “Sinus” motor technology.
The most prominent feature of the Oasis turntable is the direct drive mechanism. In a never-ending search to improve sound quality, Brinkmann quickly discovered that belts impart a fundamental sonic characteristic on the sound. For the Oasis design, Brinkmann decided to develop a direct mechanism consisting of a ring shaped permanent magnet contained in the platter’s bearing and four air-cored inductors on the Oasis’s chassis plate. These inductors are adjusted and driven with utmost precision to different phase angles. Thus, the ensuing magnetic field rotates the platter. Well ware of the reason for the bad reputation and uneasy sound of the direct drive turntables of the 1970s and 1980s, Brinkmann resisted tight regulation of the direct drive mechanism. Instead, Brinkmann took advantage of the many years of experience and insight gained from manufacturing “big” turntables, developed a precision bearing that is capable of smoothing out the drive’s miniscule speed variations. This results in a rotational smoothness hitherto unimaginable with “classic” direct drive mechanisms.
The clamping mechanism allows for quick and precise adjustments, without any play, of the aluminum arm base for 9 to 10.5-inch length tonearms. The platter is made of a special resonance-inhibiting alloy of aluminum, copper, magnesium and other materials. A crystal glass platter top layer and a screw-down record clamp allow any vibrations to be quickly absorbed by the platter. Finally, three height adjustable spikes allow for a precise leveling and optimal contact of the turntable to your choice of platforms ( HRS’ M3 Isolation Base is recommended).
Our “10th Anniversary Edition” Oasis includes a 10.5 Tonearm and features an improved direct drive bearing.
