Turntables

turntables

If you want to play back your LP, a record player is what you need. A good turntable not only spins you right round, but it stops unwanted vibrations from getting to your wanted vibrations. Record players come in many varieties, from the simple to the complex. Luckily we stock something for all tastes.

  • Denon DP-29F Turntable

    This humble little injection moulded moulded belt drive P Mount fully automatic turntable is a nostalgia trip back to my early retailing days in the seventies. Yet it still sells through several times a week. A very neat device with switcheable built in Phono stage that can be plonked into a modern system and reintroduce you to the joys of vinyl.

  • Pro-ject Primary E Turntable, Black

    Selling for one third of one thousand dollars this is a cool belt drive record player that is at a price point where otherwise only the nastiest of plastic devices from brands like Crosley and Audio Technica are sold.

    Made in Europe and coming with an Ortofon cartridge this is one excellent bargain. Completely manual the straightforward belt drive design lowers the noise floor and emulates the basic principles of players worth thousands.

  • Rega Planar 1 Turntable ... the best tonearm and the lowest internal vibration

    When they build these record players in the factory in Southend in the U.K there is a man whose sole job is to assemble the tonearm bearing and he sets the tolerance on the tonearm to below one Micron. No other manufacturer engineers their budget record players so extremely by hand ... or comes even close to the Rega engineering tolerances at this price level.

    This is simply the best budget turntable ... ever ... and they have made it look and feel so good.

    The unique factory that builds these by hand in England has never advertised and never borrowed money. They are a law unto themselves and have only one aim which is simply to allow people to have the best music in their homes for the least money and the longest time.

    Constructionally this is a device of extreme simplicity but exacting tolerances and critical use of materials. Roy Gandy (the founder and where the company name comes from) is all about building sensitive vibration measurement machines.

    I used to play a game with millenials when I would show them the platter of the earlier model RP1 and say that if they could tell me what it was made of that I would give them the record player for free. I don't do it anymore ...

    The platter is actually made of bakealite and is all part of the Mr Gandy's principle of building the turntable as a vibration sensing instrument. Most people associate it with Radios and Telephones from the thirties and forties, it is uniquely appropriate in this engineering context and is a far better solution than the cheap alloy and MDF normally used as the platter material iin budget turntables.

  • Rega Planar 1 Plus ... includes built in Phono stage

    Introducing the brand new Planar 1 Plus turntable ...

    Rega asked themselves, how to make the most successful turntable that they have ever made sound better, be even easier to use and be more accessible to a wider audience? The answer was simple; the engineers added a custom designed, high quality, moving magnet phono stage based around the multi-award winning What Hi-Fi? 5 Star Fono Mini.

  • 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 $999

    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

  • Rega Planar 3 Turntable ... our favourite record player and 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 ($200) or you can go for the Ortofon 2M Bronze ($594) for more separation and tightness in the bass.

    Alternatively a Sumiko Blue point special will bring out these crystal clear, bell-like highs with a soundstage that stretches up vertically remarkably high ($999).

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

  • Rega Planar 6 turntable ... rotational engineering excellence in vinyl

    The new Planar 6 takes Rega's detail retrieval to an unfounded level in the hotly contested sub $4000 category. Come and audition it today.

    I have taken one of these home for my Ambience loudspeakers with old Audiolab pre and power to upgrade from our old P3 and its ... fabulous.

    There such a definitive joy in rediscovering a familiar piece of vinyl born again on a new turntable and cartridge that ranks up there with the glass of irreplaceable wine and the spring morning motorcycle ride in Bavarian mountainsides ... unlike the latter two you can do it again and again without damaging health ...

    Best paired with a factory fitted Rega Exact MM cartridge ($400), an Ania MC cartridge ($800) or the new Ania Pro MC cartridge ($1300).

    Other great options are the Soundsmith Otello for a silky smooth, very 3D sound ($890) and a Sumiko Blue Point Special for some sparkling highs and gorgeous separation ($999)

  • Michell TecnoDec (No Tonearm)

    Michell's new entry-level turntable, taking the low-noise DC motor and the impedance-matched platter of the GyroDec, along with an advanced bearing on an elegant solid-plinth design with damped feet. The Michell TecnoDec requires no user-setup or maintenance. Rega RB202 Recommended $450 Learn More
  • Michell Gyrodec SE (No arm)

    Based entirely on the GyroDec, but without the costly acrylic plinth and dustcover, the Gyro SE brings the same qualities in a more affordable and compact package. A Michell Gyro SE can always be converted into a GyroDec by purchasing a plinth and dustcover. Learn More
  • Rega Planar 10 Turntable

    Less is more for Rega, less noise, less vibration, less play in the bearings, less mass to store harmful resonance energy, and less ownership dissatisfaction ...

    We would recommend the Rega Apheta 3 cartridge with this Turntable. For $1800 the Apheta 3 will come factory fitted on to the deck.

    Or go for something that much more special, a Rega Aphelion ($5500). After all, a turntable is only as good as the information it can get from the needle itself.

    Another great option is the Van den Hul "The Frog" Cartridge, a remarquable and rare device made by hand in Holland.

  • Michell Orbe Se With RB303 tonearm

    By eliminating much of the expensive acrylic, the Michell Orbe SE offers most of the Orbe’s qualities in a cheaper, smaller, and to some people aesthetically more pleasing package. An Orbe SE can always be upgraded to a full Orbe by purchasing the double plinth and dustcover. When teamed with an RB202 or RB303 tonearm, the Orbe SE is a surprisingly affordable entry to the Orbe-class of performance. Learn More
  • Michell Orbe With Tecnoarm

As of January 2004 the motor controller employs the revolutionary Never-Connected mains isolation circuit. Learn More
  • Yamaha GT-5000 Turntable...... A Japanese Homage to the monsters of the 70's & 80's

    The Yamaha GT5000 ... a turntable uniquely made by its own rules ... I think the tonearm design is excellent. I have sat through days literally of playing the GT5000 to the most critical possible audience at Hi Fi shows and not one indivisual has noted any tracking or balance errors, because there are none. Supremely low noise and precise is the emphasis here and the unique balanced out is a perfect match for a high quality phono stage or, even better, a C5000 preamplifier ...

    By the way although this shares a designation of a certain American sports car ... that is far too crude an analogy for the precision and quality of this Record Player. More like a Nissan GT-R Nismo edition ...

    Please note the outstanding reviews this turntable has been getting in the description below ...
