Depending on the model, turntables operate with different motor types. The belt-driven system is the most standard one. It rotates the platter on the turntable. The advantage of the turntable belt is that it dampens vibration from the motor and reduces unwanted noise.
Replacing a turntable belt
There's a small price to pay if you opt for a belt-driven system and its unique sound quality, and that's maintenance. Indeed, turntable belts are prone to wear and must be replaced regularly. Belt manufacturers even recommend replacing the belt before it is actually worn. Therefore, it's important to check the belt's service life and replace it as recommended. Service life depends on several factors, in particular on the material the belt is made of. According to the resilience of the materials, a turntable belt can be used for several hundred hours and dampen a significant amount of vibration.
