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.

  • Rega Planar 1 ... how to make the best budget turntable ...

    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.

  • Project RPM 1 Turntable with ortofon 2m Red Cartridge

    ngenious entry to the world of luxurious styling for audiophiles  

     

    Our newest "BEST BUY" star implements a radical concept that does not compromise sound quality at an entry-level price.  

    RPM-1 Carbon utilises a lot of innovations and enhancements: A low resonance chassis holds a newly designed inverted platter bearingwith ceramic ball for further reduced rumble. An outboard 15V AC motor is smoothly driven using an ultra-precision AC generator with DC power supply for further enhanced speed stability. A completely new designed S-shaped tonearm tube is made from carbon fibre, aluminium and resin. Using a complex 3-step process with heat treatment and 100bar pressure, arm tube rigidity is strenghtened, internal damping is maximized and resonances are reduced to a minimum.This makes the tonearm also suitable for MC cartridges. Additional features are a new magnetic antiskating mechanism and a TPE-damped counterweight. All ingredients add up to a miracle in sound for the price and ultra-stylish look!

  • Rega Planar 2 Turntable ... an old friend born anew ...

    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 ....

  • Project RPM 3 Carbon Turntable With Ortofon 2m Silver Cartridge

    Ingenious entry to the world of audiophile luxury  

    The RPM 3 Carbon utilises evolutionary enhancements to improve the performance of RPM series. A low resonance chassis holds an inverted platter bearing with ceramic ball for further reduced rumble. An outboard 15V AC motor is smoothly driven using an ultra precision AC generator with DC power supply for further enhanced speed stability.  

    A 10“ S-shaped tonearm tube is made from carbon fibre, aluminium and resin. Using a complex 3-step process with heat treatment and 100bar pressure, arm tube rigidity is strengthened, internal damping is maximised and resonances are reduced to a minimum. This makes the tonearm also suitable for MC cartridges. Additional features are a magnetic antiskating mechanism and a TPE-damped counterweight. All ingredients add up to a miracle in sound for the price and ultra-stylish look!

  • Rega Planar 3 Turntable ... the crocodile of record players ... it never left us

    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 ...

    "Hi Fi Choice" have some wonderful things to say about the Planar 3:

    "It has a powerful and impressively deep bass that never loses texture and detail"

    "Where the differences start to show is in the way that the Planar 3 presents the complex and highly congested material of the track. It opens up the material, never making it sound disjointed or confused, but instead manageing to create a sense of space and soundstage where many similiarly priced rivals may struggle"

    "It is completely unfazed by any genre of music that is thrown at it"

    "represents the driving force for affordable vinyl playback"

    "more than any other affordable turntable I have listened to in recent times , it dosn't require the caveat that it is good at the price"

    "Trusted Reviews" on the Planar 3.

  • Project 2Xperience SB Turntable

    Outstanding performance from a compact and luxurious turntable configuration  

     

    2Xperience SB is based on the 2Xperience belt-drive concept which incorporates over 20 years of turntable design experience. The addition of precision motor control with electronic speed changing and a highend 9cc Evolution carbon fiber tonearm means playback quality is vastly improved. The heavy chassis is made from MDF using a non-resonant construction technique. The turntable platter is built with heavy, non-resonant materials in a precisely balanced sandwich configuration. A vinyl layer acts as the perfect turntable mat. A screwable and light-weight record clamp eliminates unwanted record vibration and rumbling of the main platter bearing. The audio performance of the final product benefits from the resonance-free platter, avoiding the ringing effect of common metal and glass platters. The 2Xperience SB is not only equipped with a highend tonearm, but comes with a pre-fitted Ortofon 2M Silver magnetic cartridge that makes use of silver voice coils. An acrylic dust cover is also included. Finishes are available in three real wood veneer options (eucalyptus, walnut, palisander) as well as three high-gloss finishes (olive, mahogany, black).
