The name “Bayadere” (from the Portuguese word bailhadera) is an European term for Devadasi, female dancers from India clothed in bright costumes, usually made out of striped fabric. The Bayaderas were women chosen to be married to deities and become temple dancers, in fact, according to the indian temple worship rules, dance and music are vital aspects of the daily worshiping rituals for temple deities.
Bayaderes were called akhanda saubhagyavati ("women never separated from good fortune"), they were treated with due respect and often presented with gifts. Their main duties were to take care of a temple and learn classical Indian dances, which they would perform at temple rituals.
Inspired by the fabric of the Devadasi’s dresses, the Auris Bayadere 3 is a powerful music temple on his own, stable and elegant with an exceptional design that combines layers of high quality aluminum and dark shiny kerrock®, reminding the colored stripes of the indian silk.
Bayadere 3 is a well balanced turntable, it’s main platter is mounted on leveling feet, very precisely shaped by our designers for a true isolation from vibration and, in order to further reduce the vibrations, we integrated the main bearing in a case isolated from the base with a set of rubber rings. The main bearing is manufactured using the highest quality stainless steel with an incorporated bronze cylinder mounted with great precision in order to make the platter spin with the minimum resistance. There is a steady support of the main bearing consisting in a ceramic ball and a Widia tile hardness over 80 rockwell, which makes the turntable work noiselessly and last longer with very little amounts of lubricant.
Taking into account the experience of many turntable manifacturers, we decided to opt too for a synchronous AC motor, which is distinguished by its speed attitude and stability; it is also possible to upgrade the Bayadere 3 with an electronic speed control. Conditioned by the frequency of the power grid, the only difference between our Bayadere 3 european and U.S.A versions is in the pully’s diameter.
For our Bayadere 3 we recommend the W9 tonearm – a 9’’ unipivot tonearm made out of carbon fiber and milled aluminum. The W9 tonearm moves thanks to six ball bearings. The armwand is implated in an aluminum joint, complete with an antiskating system hovering on two ball bearings, with ultra low friction and VTA adjustment of 10mm. The W9 is wired with the Van den Hull® wires.
