VINYL

Revival? Resurgence? Revolution? Whatever you want to call it, vinyl is still highly prized by audiophiles. Modern pressing techniques encode so much detail onto each LP that digital struggles to keep up. Oh yeah, and people say it sounds warm. Whatever that means. Any which way, we’ve got one of the largest ranges of turntables in the country and all the accessories you need to get the most from your wax slab.

  • Pro-Ject VC-S2, Record Cleaner

    Cleaning records is not just for people with serious cases of OCD, it's done to improve the way your records sound, give longevity to your precious cartridge and stylus and try to eliminate those pops and crackles.

    Proper record cleaning is an important part of a Vinyl lovers routine and if your only option is a bath type of cleaner, it quickly becomes a tedious job of waiting for the Vinyl to dry before putting them on. Let alone having to find floor space and enough teatowels to sit them on,

    The vacuum method, like this one, is much more time efficient and effective at getting the grime out of the grooves.

    Its advantage over the smaller and cheaper VC-E is that it has a much larger cleaning fluid tank, 2.5L as opposed to 0.5L and a much better motor. It's also notably quieter to run and has less plastic bits than the VC-E.

  • Pro-Ject Ground It 3

    Good for Hi-Fi generally but particularly useful with Turntables. This will dampen Resonances so as not to create distortion in your system.

    Handy if you don't want to fix a Wall-Mount to your wall for a Turntable or to increase the performance of your Hi-Fi system.

    The Gound It 3 has the same granular mass inside it to dampen vibrations as the 1 and 2 does but it has alot more of that granular material and more solid, isolating feet than the other models too. 

    Top Tip: They are more useful under CD players to counter act the effects of the moving parts.

  • Project Debut Carbon Evo with Ortofon 2M Red

    The Pro-Ject Debut Carbon looms large in HiFi circles as a must hear Vinyl player in the $1K price bracket. It's an affordable deck with a good sound. A little less money than a Rega Planar 3 ($1449), it doesn't have the cleanliness in the sound of the Rega but it's a major step up from the Primary E or the Essential in the Pro-Ject range. All of a sudden you're getting a real Turntable, not something that feels like a toy designed only to sit on a dresser and be played only when friends are over.

    A solid Turntable for when you start to get serious about Vinyl.

  • Rega Planar 2 Turntable

    1 Review(s)

    This is the newest incarnation of this 40 year long running model. There are still Planar 2s out there in your grandfathers house that he blew his student grant on in 1976 (remember student grants? Baby boomers had it good didn't they ...) It has the glass platter and 24V motor of the Planar 3 with a simplified tonearm and chassis construction.

    It comes as standard with the Rega Carbon cartridge that is ... OK ... basically a relabelled Audio Technica AT95 ... but we believe this turntable is very worthy of an upgrade. 

    We started selling Rega Planar 2s thirty years ago and dealing with them again is like meeting an old friend from uni and playing music with them and feeling young and stoned again ....

    "What Hi Fi?"loves the Planar 2.

  • Music Maker System ... Turntable Amplifier and Speakers

    Real Hi Fi shops should try and sell you something that brings you closer to the music and makes you want to keep it for years. If they tell you the cutely shaped active plastic wireless loudspeaker system is better they are being paid to do it and are fake news. This particular system is the product of Australia's oldest distributor of specialist audio declaring war on plastic disposable speaker rubbish and breaking down the millennial glass ceiling where instagram influencer marketing defeats engineering common sense.

     

    Please note: It doesn't include the stands, the rack or the dog pictured in some images...

  • Ortofon Quintet Bronze MC

    The Quintet Bronze moves into the higher league of the Quintets.

    The slim profile of its Nude Fine Line diamond stylus will track even the highest frequency information, making it a must for discerning listeners.

    Additionally its larger footprint ensures reduced distortion and record wear.

    The sound will be very evenhanded with respect to all aspects. Classical music will be reproduced with power and open space around each of the instruments.

  • Ortofon 2M Black

    The 2M Black is Ortofon just plain showing off. The Shibata diamond stylus is something special. Its vaguely knife-shaped profile gets deep into the grooves of your records and digs up detail and warmth that you didn't know was ever there before. There's no finer moving magnet cartridge on the market. Learn More
  • Garrott Brothers Optim S-2 FGS

    Garrott Brothers cartridges were founded in the 1970s by the Australian twins John and Brian Garrott. They operated their business out of Australia but drew the most renowned from the American and European markets. For those in the know, however, Garrott Brothers cartridges have also represented the best cartridges at their price points.

    Garrott Brothers apply some fundamental principles that always make their cartridges better. Diamond quality and orientation is one of those. You can have a conical diamond but choose a good quality one without those microscopic gouges and it will sound infinetely better. Orientation along the diamond grain is also essential to extracting the best out of a groove.

    THe Optim S-2 FGS goes beyond their basic principles offering a specifically tuned cartridge that's neither too dampening nor too exentuating leaving simply the music as it's meant to be.

    The FGS or Fritz Geiger Signature is a stylus design based on one by the dutch cartridge manufacturer, AJ Van del Hul to replicate the cutting device used to make the vinyl. The cartridge body has been made to exactly match this particular cut of diamond.

    This is a beauty of a cartridge that delivers real depth and musicality to a recording.

  • Pro-Ject X1, Walnut

    This is a well thought out turntable from well-respected Pro-Ject. They've used classic aspects of their design and bundled the best of them into a great, not-overly-priced, turntable.

    This Turntable comes with a light and super stiff Tonearm being made from a carbon fibre/aluminium sandwich, an acoustically dampening acrylic platter and the convenience of speed control at the end of your finger tips on the deck. Doing away with having to lift up the platter to change the speed for those 45rpm records.

    Finished off in a walnut veneer, this deck looks sleek and beautiful in any home.

    This Turntable doesn't come with a cartridge. Please give us a call to talk about cartridge options. We can mount and set up a cartridge in store and have it ready to collect or ship as if it came from the factory that way.

  • Rega Planar 3 Turntable , a living classic

    While other brands of record player suffered mass extinction through the asteroidal impact of Compact Disc in the early eighties Rega sales never faltered. 

    During the long dark years of Compact Disc we always kept a Planar 3 on readiness in the store to play an old Pink Floyd record and show people how much better vinyl could sound.

    Like a crocodile hunkering down in the swamp the Planar 3 just kept on with the job of pleasing music lovers and occasionally consuming careless newly evolved Digital Mammals ...

    The Planar 3 has the option of coming factory fitted with an Elys 2 cartridge ($350).

    Alternatively a Sumiko Blue Point Special will bring out these crystal clear, bell-like highs with a soundstage that stretches up vertically remarkably high ($1099).

    The Soundsmith Moving Iron Otello is another popular choice. It hs a luscious smoothness and 3D depth that really draws in the listener ($890)

  • Ortofon Quintet Black S MC

    The Quintet Black S is the best example of Quintet’s overall excellence

    The Quintet Black S is graced with a Nude Shibata diamond, considered one of the best stylus profiles available, mounted on a high-performance Sapphire cantilever.

    The Shibata’s slim, highly polished profile allows an exceedingly wide contact area to the walls of the groove and ensures detailed and pure reproduction thoughout the spectrum, including even the most high frequency groove information.

  • Van Den Hul THE DDT - II SPECIAL

    Detail, Dept and Timbre, that’s what DDT stands for! It is based on the very first M.C. Cartridge A.J. van den Hul ever built. The term “Special” in this case indicates that some major improvements have been made, e.g. a thicker frontpole and an extra small magnet, both further enhancing its resolution capabilities and output voltage. Output voltage for this cartridge is 0,65 mV per channel. Equipped wit its VDH-I stylus it has a frequency range of 5 - 50.000 Hz.. This cartridge gives excellent value for money and will not embarrass any high-end installation.

  • Rega Ania Pro MC cartridge

    The new Ania Pro Moving Coil cartridge is a variation on Rega's existing Ania cart. The difference being a Vital Profile nude diamond instead of the Eliptical. An Eliptical diamond has a rounded surface that's shaped so it's longer front-to-back than it is side-to-side. It has its advantages but it means that alot of the high frequency and the smaller details are missed from being picked up within the groove.

    The Vital Profile has some specifically designed sharper edges that get the diamond further into the groove producing a more nuanced, detailed sound.

    It retains all the nice things of the original Ania as well: Neodymium magnets, handwound loss mass coils, aluminium catilever, one-piece rigid body and the CAD designed cover of the internals which is made in red to distinguish it from its little brother.

    This is great upgrade that's well worth the money. It's a great upgrade option on a Rega Planar 3 and can come factory fitted to the Planar 6 or 8. It is also a fantastic choice for other brands of Turntable. We do recommend we fit this cartridge to your deck as tracking and alignment become more crucial when the diamond is cut in this way.

    Don't fret though, Carlton Audio Visual will fit your Ania Pro free of charge and offer you a tea, coffee or beer while you wait!

  • Soundsmith Carmen

    Created out of the desire to make a very high performance design at an affordable price, the Carmen mk II was crafted to have unparalleled purity of tone and ultra-smooth presentation. Just slightly lush with a well-developed midrange, the Carmen is surprisingly pleasing and will seduce you into long, late listening sessions.

    The stylus used is a large part of what makes it special; an ultra-low mass occlusion free nude diamond cut and polished into a true hyper-elliptical shape. The combination of low tip mass and the Fixed Coil design gives the Carmen a tremendous resolution advantage over MC designs selling for more than twice the price. Housed in a handmade solid Ebony case, the Carmen delivers.

  • Roksan Attessa Turntable

    The new Turntable from Roksan is designed around minimalist ideals. Less is More!

    The Unipivot tonearm has a single point bearing instead of the multiple horizontal and vertical bearings of a gimbal design. This means there's a reduction in the coupling surface area. In short - less vibrational resonance.

    A high mass glass platter within an Aluminium shell providing extra dampening. All made to look sleek and sexy.

    Built in phono stage for a reduced clean look without the need for an external unit.

    Highly controlled microprocessor built in for exacting speed control.

    A gorgeous unit that'll make many customers happy.

  • Chord Huei Phono Stage

    Typically known for their digital products in particular their DACs, Chord has surfaced with a product for all of those Vinyl enthusiasts that are jealous of their friend's aircraft grade aluminium DACs. Like their digital products, the Huei not only has that super cool casing, it also has the pretty LED lights and funky buttons...

    ...but of course the aesthetics of the Huei aren't the only important thing here!

    The Huei is a MM/MC phono stage with all of that tinkering capability for any type of cartridge. Impedance, Gain and Rumble (!) settings are all at your fingertips (coressponding to different coloured lights in the chassis). It also has Balanced outputs for those who are serious about Hi-Fi...and not just the coloured lights...

    It produces an incredibly clean sound almost completely devoid of noise floor resolving the image beautifully.

    We would recommend it to go with Soundsmith, Rega and Van den Hul cartridges.

  • Van Den Hul MC-One Special

    In a range that includes models costing thousands of pounds, the MC One Special is a relatively affordable example. It's a 'selected' version of the MC10 Special, a hand-built cartridge using silver wire coils and a boron cantilever (the tube that connects the stylus to the coils). Because of the relatively wide sample variations with cartridges, it's not unusual for makers to charge a bit more for selected samples of a particular model - ones that are found to perform better than the rest. Grado is another manufacturer that does this - the Prestige Gold on page 46 is a 'selected' version of the Prestige Silver, for which an additional £20 is charged
