HISTORY

June 2020.
The AP-0 analog record player is launched.
The AP-0 is the result of our experience in developing equipment for space, medical, and other extreme environments, as well as our solid machining technology for watch and aircraft parts.
The AP-0 is a precision machine that pursues YUKI SEIMITSU’s ideals.

March 2023.
The AP-01 is released, based on the AP-0, but with brand new functions.
The physical characteristics that have already been perfected are retained.
Challenging elements such as renewal of the electrical system, pursuit of stability, and consideration of static electricity and record quality have been incorporated.
Its appearance is largely unchanged from that of the AP-0: the design concept of the AP-0 has proven to be unbeatable, even with hindsight and experience.
This is because the design philosophy demonstrated in the AP-0 is the best we can think of, at present, and these elements should be inherited as the core of the sound creation that YUKI Precision aims for.

The AP-01 is a model that was designed and manufactured based on physical requirements and simply considering from zero how a record player should be.
The AP-01 is designed to carefully convert the minute information carved in the grooves of a record onto the needle without missing a thing, and to carefully convert it into electric current.

When you encounter the AP-01, you will surely feel the urge to listen to all the records in your collection again.

EVOLUTION
FEATURE

Control board

The electronic circuit board – the heart of the platter control – has been redesigned to achieve even greater rotational stability.

Conductive Platter

The platter itself is conductive, suppressing static electricity. A unique sound field can be obtained by listening to a record directly on the platter without using a turntable sheet.

Magnetic bearing structure

A non-contact bearing is used in the rotating section from the platter to the shaft by means of a permanent magnet, which is in contact with only one sphere at the lowest point. Magnetic repulsion maintains a constant spacing around the bearing, enabling quiet, sustained rotational motion without bearing noise.

Independent pitch control

Pitch control is independent for each line number, allowing individual pitch adjustment and storage of pitch settings for each 33, 45, and 78 rpm.

Exclusive tone arm with hysteresis brake

This particular arm designed specially for this turntable incorporates a non-contact brake with a unique mechanism that uses the power of magnets. The arm retainer is shielded by an anti-vibration material so that external vibration does not affet the arm. Various measures are taken to extract only the pure sound groove information.

Drive thread with symmerical layout

Only the rotational power is transmitted to the platter by suppressing the moment in the tipping direction. Two horizontally connected shafts balance the tension received from the drive thread.
