Why is it Special?


Boasting premium materials, stylish aesthetics, and a rich, lively sound, extensive research & development have ensured no-compromise build & sound quality for a ‘table in this range. The stylish CNC-machined plinth (gloss black, satin white, satin walnut foil) is free of plastic parts and is carefully manufactured to ensure there are no hollow spaces, which prevents unwanted resonance within the chassis. Carrying this philosophy throughout, the glass platter is also a massive, zero-resonance design with aesthetic appeal. To support the deck, purpose-selected turntable isolation feet prevent ambient vibration near your system from affecting your playback.
