Press Reviews

  • As the name implies this is a back-to-basics kind of product. There are no headline-grabbing materials or technologies here, just great build at a highly competitive price. Want to play singles? You’ll need to manually shift the drive belt to the larger step on the motor pulley. This is as basic as turntables get, but it’s no worse off for that; the money has gone into the engineering.
