Edmund Chan who is based in Hong Kong is a music lover and the brainchild behind Mober DC Speed Control and other innovative products such as Hercules II Mose Power Supply for Linn Turntable (circa 2005 and still in demand today) . Edmund doesn’t have a website to provide with details of his products, however you will find Edmund’s product not lacking of any exposure and demand when you search on google. Here are links to some independent reviews on Mober DC Speed Control.
Mober DC Speed Control
Mober DC Speed Control is similar without being identical to Linn Radikal DC Power System. The Mober uses a Swiss-made Maxon DC motor. According to Edmund the appeal of DC over AC motor is noise. Generally DC motors are much quieter than AC motors ; the challenge here is keeping DC motor running at a constant speed, since DC motors are very sensitive to slight changes supplied voltage.
Included is an optical tachometer to be attached to the top plate which monitors the movement of 16 point markers placed to the underside of the outer platter, and feeds this information back to a control box which responds with changes in voltage to the motor based on the current speed, compensating when deviations are detected. According to Edmund, the idea behind 16 markers versus 1 marker (use on Linn Lingo/ Radikal) is it’s respond more quickly to deviations from true speed.
