The Pioneer belt drive system built into the PL10 owes its popularity to the superior rotation speed stability and improved signal to noise ratio provided by the polyurethane belt.
This system is unaffected by changes in temperature and humidity and is one of the reasons behind the outstanding performance of the PL10.
