The Edwards Audio TT1 MkII is the latest version of Edwards' first ever turntable, but you wouldnt think so from the fact it quickly won a What Hi-Fi award and is very well designed, complete with Rega RB251 tonearm, supplied without cartridge, ready for you to fit with your choice of either moving magnet (MM) or moving coil (MC) cartridge.
The first thing you notice about the TT1 MkII is the stylish 12mm thick see through turntable platter. Unlike some similar designs that are then covered with a bland turntable mat, the TT1 MkII does not include a mat from the fact it sounded better during testing without. The inner platter runs on a polished steel ball bearing in a specially produced light synthetic machine oil designed for Formula 1 applications (!) It's finished off with 3 rubber isolation feet.
Like many fixed design turntables, proper placement is important to get the best performance. Whilst placing the TT1 MkII on top of a solid hi-fi rack is a suitable option, a dedicated wall shelf is recommended to isolate the turntable fully. Use with the Edwards Audio MM1 for the best performance.
