The "big brother" of the CS 435. Compared to it, it has a higher class tonearm und a more heavy platter. This brings a better speed accuracy and the turntable or rather the scanning of the record is more insensitive against vibrations and impact noise.
The drive through a precision rubber belt eliminates further vibrations, which could be caused by the motor and could be transmitted through the platter to the cartridge. That's why the belt drive is the best kind of drive for a hifi turntable.
Additional the CS 455-1 gives you the possibility to play grammophone records with 78 r/min. Thereofre you only have to change the needle.
For the best ease of use the proven full-automatic system of the Black Forrest is built-in.
