    The Scout 2 features a 1 7/8 thick aluminum platter (with a stainless steel damping plate) in place of the Scout's 1 3/8 acrylic platter.


    The result of mating a great platter to a simple good looking design! In only seven years, the VPI Scout has become the industry standard as the best-reviewed turntable on the planet! For 2009, we saw fit to bring some big improvements to its best-selling turntable. You may recognize the outboard motor and the plinth, but you will do a double take at the exquisite platter and tonearm.


    Every VPI Scout II comes standard with the JMW 9T! This incredible tonearm features a redesigned armtube that is tapered and filled with a proprietary damping material. This revolutionary design greatly reduces internal resonance, yielding a full and rich sound, with a vast soundstage and increased resolution and detail. The added mass also produces deeper bass response and fantastic compatibility with moving coil cartridges.


    For maximum stability and speed accuracy the platter is made from 1 7/8 thick machined 6061 aluminum and is attached to a nonmagnetic 303 stainless steel damping plate. The entire piece weighs in at an impressive 18 pounds! Because the aluminum is grounded to the steel, there is virtually no static buildup or sonic degradation. What's in the grooves is what comes out of your speakers.


    The VPI Scout II's plinth is made from 1 1/8 thick MDF bonded to a 12 gauge steel plate giving a rigid, non-resonant plinth. The massive platter sits on chrome-hardened ball bearing held by a 60 Rockwell-hardened shaft, below which is a black delrin nut.


    The VPI Scout II generates absolutely no additional noise for a pristinely quiet spin. The AC synchronous motor is contained in a separate steel housing and drives the platter via an Aries belt. This combination produces quiet yet stable running with extremely accurate speed. Speeds are 33 and 45 standard, while 78 is optional.

    Gingko Audio Cloud 11

    Each Gingko Audio product is made to order


    The patent-pending Cloud is a simple yet effective vibration control platform. Its elegant design belies its functional effectiveness. It works well because of the correct choice of material coupled with a flexible design that allows the user to
    experiment with a wide variety of applications. In the end you the audiophile make the ultimate judgment of how to best meet your needs, functionally and aesthetically.


    How vibration negatively affects good sound is a well-known and accepted phenomenon on which we need not elaborate. There are many available products
    aiming at reducing vibration affecting audio equipment. Most of them seek to isolate
    the equipment from unwanted vibration in the environment, transferred through the surface on which the equipment sits, be it the wooden floor or the metal rack. At the same time, vibration caused by the equipment itself such as the CD transport
    mechanism or the turntable platter needs to be dissipated so it does not affect other equipment on the rack.


    We find that acrylic does an excellent job in dissipating any vibrating energy it receives because of its complex, dense, and irregular molecular structure. It is not an accident that many audio products use acrylic in their designs, whether an acrylic turntable platter or an acrylic chassis for CD players or transports. In addition to the
    acrylic platform, the Cloud ™ also uses rubber balls to further isolate vibration from the environment from the equipment. The rubber balls serve two critical functions.


    They provide four degrees of freedom in the movement of the top platform relative
    to the bottom base. The top platform sitting on top of the rubber balls can freely
    move up and down, front to back, and side to side, and rotationally while minimizing
    undulating, repeating motion that continues after the original vibration. They work
    as very effective shock absorbers. The rubber balls are also used to balance the uneven load of some equipment such as amplifiers or turntables. By placing the rubber balls in the different positions in the base, the user can level the equipment
    and even the load. The standard balls that come with our platform are found to provide the most neutral sound. You may experiment with different kinds of balls to find ones to match your system and to suit your taste in music.

    Limited edition audiophile turntable with acrylic chassis and class-leading sound!


    2Xperience Primary Acryl is an ultra-stylish record player that uses advanced technology for great sound. A quiet running AC motor with a two-step pulley drives the platter's outside edge via a belt. The resonance-optimised MDF platter with screwdown record clamp runs on a low-tolerance stainless-steel axle with Teflon bearing plate in a sintered bronze bearing housing. The transparent acrylic plinth stands on three height-adjustable TPE-damped aluminium cones.


    An external power supply avoids potential electro-mechanical interference. The sophisticated 9 tonearm uses an one-piece aluminium headshell & armtube and an inverted bearing design with four hardened ABEC7 spec ballraces. The solid armbase permits accurate height adjustment of armtube and VTA (vertical tracing angle) if needed. The internal wiring consists of flexible high-purity copper from the headshell right through to the gold-plated phono sockets.

    Performance priced right


    A turntable should be reliable and easy to use, but most importantly it should sound great. High-performance tables can be prohibitively expensive, and budget tables too often sacrifice quality for unnecessary features. So we set out to build a turntable that outperforms its price tag.


    By redesigning classic audiophile components and leaving out nonessentials, we created a remarkably simple table that provides warm and detailed sound. Easy to setup and use, the Orbit delivers a dynamic and distortion-free listening experience.


    A quiet revolution


    The Orbit's low voltage AC synchronous motor provides excellent speed consistency and minimizes pitch variation (wow & flutter). The motor is decoupled from the plinth by a unique rubber suspension that prevents unwanted vibrations from seeping into the sound.


    The Orbit's CNC machined pulley turns an exposed drive belt and plays both 33 1/3 and 45 RPM records. The platter rides on an inverted main bearing - providing superior stability and reduced bearing noise (rumble). In other words, all you hear is the music on your record.


    A perfectly balanced tonearm


    The tonearm is the crucial link between your record and your speakers. To do its job well, it must achieve harmony between tracking force, mass distribution, and rigidity. The Orbit's innovative unipivot arm turns effortlessly on an inverted pyramid of precision ball bearings, and works with the arm's low center of mass to provide accurate tracking.


    Every Orbit comes pre-fitted with an Ortofon OM 5E moving magnet (MM) cartridge, which is balanced by an adjustable stainless steel counterweight.


    Take it for a spin


    The Orbit is ready to play out of the box. Cartridges come pre-installed with tracking force properly adjusted, so all you have to do is turn the table on and lower the arm. A dust cover, felt mat, and RCA cables are all included with every table. Check out the Orbit Basic or Plus, or you can use our Orbit customization tool to select your own color, platter, cartridge, preamp, and add-ons. Parts are interchangeable so you can upgrade down the line and tailor your turntable to your needs.


    Made with love in Boston


    Every Orbit is assembled by hand in our Woburn, Massachusetts workshop. Prior to shipping, each turntable goes through comprehensive listening, wow & flutter, and rumble tests, as well as a 15-point performance evaluation. Every Orbit comes with a one year warranty.


    The vast majority of our parts are sourced within the US. Our acrylic platters are turned in Ohio. Our plinths come from Minnesota, and our metal parts from Connecticut. By keeping our suppliers close and our assembly in-house, we are able to maintain a high level of quality.

    EXTREMELY LIMITED!!! Only 500 Made!


    Pro-Ject Audio Systems have teamed up with the estate of legendary musician George Harrison to produce a special turntable, coinciding with the release of George Harrison - The Vinyl Collection LP box-set from USM.


    The limited edition Pro-Ject George Harrison record player boasts an entirely unique appearance created by design specialists, Studio Number One. Studio Number One was founded by Shepard Fairey, and the Pro-Ject George Harrison record player makes use of an image taken from the world-famous artist's work.


    The turntable itself is based on Pro-Ject Audio Systems' coveted Essential III design with an Acryl-IT E platter. The Essential III benefits from a sturdy MDF plinth mounted on anti-vibration feet. Supplied with an acrylic platter, high-quality tonearm and Ortofon OM 10 cartridge, the sound performance puts the turntable in a class of its own when compared to rival products.


    The Pro-Ject George Harrison turntable is the perfect product for any George Harrison fan who takes their sound quality seriously. It's also the ideal companion to the new vinyl box set, which features all twelve of Harrison's studio albums as well as the classic live album Live In Japan (2LP) and two 12" single picture discs of When We Was Fab and Got My Mind Set On You.


    Released to commemorate George Harrison's birthday (February 25th), the whole vinyl box set has been pressed onto high-quality 180g heavyweight vinyl with re-masters taken from the original analogue master tapes and newly cut at the legendary Capitol studios. With such a high-quality vinyl collection, it's essential that you play these iconic tracks on a good record player, and the Pro-Ject George Harrison is just the player you need.

    MMF 11.1 Turntable


    Have a question about this product? Please email our audio advisor or call 1-877-929-8729 with any questions or concerns regarding your equipment purchase.


    We had the MMF-11 balanced and playing in less than an hour (this includes setting up its fishline-mounted antiskating weight). Even with headphones, it's the most sparkling, accurate turntable we've ever used. And vibrations in our wood-floored testing space never fazed the 39.5-pound unit. This is audiophile bliss.

    - Victor Krummenacher, Wired


    The Music Hall mmf-11.1 turntable, our latest flagship, is a 2-speed belt-driven audiophile turntable, featuring the unique quadruple-plinth construction originated by Music Hall.


    The distinctive design isolates the critical sound reproducing components, each on their own plinth. The tonearm is mounted to the upper plinth and the inverted ceramic main bearing is mounted to the second plinth allowing the partially sunken 1 1/2 acrylic platter to spin freely.


    Moving the main bearing to the second plinth improved cartridge tracking and significantly lowered background noise. The adjustable magnetic-levitation isolation feet, microprocessor speed control, motors, flywheel, and wiring are all mounted to the bottom plinth. The motors, flywheel, and speed control are further isolated on their own vibration damped dual-plinth platform, which is separately isolated from the upper three main plinths.


    Sorbothane hemispheres separate each of the three main plinths and provide additional vibration damping. The bottom plinth functions as a mass-loaded resonant sink for the entire turntable. Two motors and a flywheel are used to increase torque and speed stability. The mmf-11.1 comes in a high-gloss piano black lacquer finish and ships without cartridge. A large encapsulating acrylic dustcover is included.

    The New Acrylic Series


    The new Acrylic-Series is stunning - not only from a visual point of view. Thanks to elaborate control circuitry, an extremely stable acrylic plinth and a heavy aluminium platter, the turntables are made to sound as exciting as they look.


    The external motor unit of the Thorens Acrylic-Series was constructed in a way that there is no mechanical contact to the plinth, thus avoiding transfer of vibration. In addition, the entire turntable rests on special feet which effectively dampen all kinds of air-born or footfall vibrations and eventually ensure a continuous, undisturbed run of the platter.


    The TP 92 Tonearm

    The TP 92 tonearm, which was specially designed for Thorens turntables, uses an ultra-low-friction bearing and an innovative magnetic anti-bias system with zero stiction. The arm tube is made from rolled aluminium that is damped using RMR (Reduced Modal Resonance) technology. The brass counterweight at the end of the arm tube is double-decoupled, and the tonearm is so designed that its centre of gravity is level with the stylus.

    The new Acrylic-Series is stunning - not only from a visual point of view. Thanks to elaborate control circuitry, an extremely stable acrylic plinth and a heavy aluminium platter, the turntables are made to sound as exciting as they look.


    The external motor unit of the Thorens Acrylic-Series was constructed in a way that there is no mechanical contact to the plinth, thus avoiding transfer of vibration. In addition, the entire turntable rests on special feet which effectively dampen all kinds of air-born or footfall vibrations and eventually ensure a continuous, undisturbed run of the platter.


    The TP 92 Tonearm

    The TP 92 tonearm, which was specially designed for Thorens turntables, uses an ultra-low-friction bearing and an innovative magnetic anti-bias system with zero stiction. The arm tube is made from rolled aluminium that is damped using RMR (Reduced Modal Resonance) technology. The brass counterweight at the end of the arm tube is double-decoupled, and the tonearm is so designed that its centre of gravity is level with the stylus.

    Replacing the multi award winning and five times What Hi-Fi? Product of the Year (RP3) was never going to be an easy task. It took a team of designers headed up by Rega's Roy Gandy, two years to develop the all new 'Planar 3' following the biggest re-design of the iconic 'three' model ever seen.


    The Rega team has worked tirelessly to improve every aspect of this turntable offering improved ergonomics, usability and first and foremost, sonic performance.The new 'Planar 3' is truly a new turntable for 2016 carrying over just two components from the previous model.


    New features of the Planar Three:


    RB330 tonearm - Designed using the latest 3D CAD & CAM technology, the new RB330 is the culmination of more than 35 years of tonearm design experience. Featuring a brand new bearing housing, and our latest tonearm tube designed using intelligent redistribution of mass ensure this arm will exhibit fewer points of possible resonance. Extreme stability with almost friction free movement from the new high precision bearing assemblies guarantees to gather more information from your vinyl than ever before.


    • Featuring a new bias assembly, re-designed stiffer vertical bearing housing, integrated
      arm clip and an improved spring housing with easier to read numbers.
    • Rega made, new low capacitance phono cable with Neutrik plugs,
    • Improved lower friction, precision horizontal and vertical bearings
    • New design 100g mild steel balance weight.


    Plinth - High gloss acrylic, laminated plinth, stiffer and vastly improved appearance, ergonomically positioned power switch.Two plinth finishes at launch: gloss black & gloss white


    Double braces - Improved thicker 3mm phenolic bottom brace and new metalised skin phenolic top brace.


    Bearing housing - Re-designed brass main hub central bearing, improved fit and construction reducing stress on the bearing itself.


    Sub platter - Re-designed sub platter, improved accuracy and improved stiffness.


    Platter - New float glass 'Optiwhite' polished rim 12mm - Improved accuracy in manufacture and stunning looks.


    Re-designed foot - New improved foot to increase stability and reduce vibration transfer.


    24V motor - Improved new motor control PCB with integration for the addition of TT-PSU for electronic speed change and improved advanced anti-vibration circuit (sold separately).


    Motor cover tray with integrated cooling.


    DB Technology (Double Brace Technology)

    Mass absorbs energy - lost energy equals lost music!


    Rega has pioneered the use of lightweight rigid plinths. Clever use of lightweight particulate core with a highly rigid phenolic resin skin became the foundations of the high level of performance achieved by the now iconic original Planar range.


    The new Planar 3 takes this design philosophy to the next level. A lightweight acrylic laminated plinth strengthened using a new improved double brace system mounted specifically where the increased rigidity is required (between the tonearm mounting and the main hub bearing) which forms a structurally sound stressed beam assembly. This rigid plinth design prevents energy absorption and unwanted resonance, which will add unnatural distortions to the music.


    Equally, heavier mass can transfer more unwanted energy, such as motor or bearing noise directly into the rotating record. The use of braces instead of the complete skin allows double thickness phenolic resin in these key areas while providing further weight reduction to the plinth which directly addresses the issue of mass absorption and unwanted energy transmission.


    Hand assembled RB330 tonearm.

    24v low noise motor / 12mm float glass platter.

    Lightweight double braced plinth.

    Precision main bearing.

    Factory fitted Elys2 MM cartridge or mounted with Ortofon 2m Blue cartridge (optional).

    Compatible with the TT-PSU electronic speed change and power supply box (optional).
