Many turntables include a dust cover, or offer a separate cover. This, as the name suggests, protects from dust and particles which can affect the playback of your vinyl records. Dust can get in the grooves of your record or on your cartridge’s stylus and cause issues with the sound you experience, manifested through pops and crackles, and potentially the loss of detail in your music. This is why protecting your turntable from dust and maintaining your stylus and records is essential in achieving the best possible performance.

A key component of any turntable is the platter – the disc on which the record is placed. Different materials have different sonic properties, and deal with resonance in a different manner. Many higher end models use higher-mass platters and a range of materials to truly isolate and decouple the platter from resonance, vibration and motor noise. Many manufacturers offer platter upgrades, allowing for you to upgrade your platter and improve the quality of your existing turntable. Acrylic, glass and aluminium platters are common upgrades which can increase the performance of your vinyl playback.

In order for the record to play continuously, the platter needs to rotate or spin. Turntables have two varying approaches to this. The typical manner of achieving this is a belt-drive design, where a rubber belt attaches to a motor and in turn round the platter and controls the speed at which the platter turns. This is the method employed by most turntables. The drive belt will need to be replaced from time to time, as a stretched or worn drive belt can affect playback speed and result in a record being too slow or fast. The other method is direct drive, in which a motor directly turns the platter. This is the manner many higher end turntables control speed, and presents a different consideration for designers as the motor vibrations need to be isolated and controlled differently as the motor is connected to the platter directly and thus can have a greater effect on playback.

The output signal from a phono cartridge is typically very low, even more so if your cartridge is Moving Coil (MC). For this reason, before you connect to an amplifier, the output signal needs to be boosted. This is typically done by a phono stage. A phono stage can be a separate standalone product or included on the turntable itself. Many integrated amplifiers also feature an internal phono stage, known as a “phono input”, allowing you to connect directly to this input and enjoy your record collection directly. If your turntable features a phono stage then it can be connected to any amplifier directly.
