The Wonderful World of Turntable Design

No metallic paint? How very drab.


#1130

Hmmmmmmmmmmm :thinking:


#1131

Ugh :face_vomiting:. Wank.


#1132

Defineately artisan fidelity - 401 “statement “

Corrected I stand.


#1135

Wonder if one supplies the other, or just copied.


#1136

The artisan platter and bearing is different. Ray may supply the chassis? I wonder with SME now owning the brand if it may become difficult to call the unit a “garrard” ?


#1137

Very one would imagine, it would look better without the name on though :slight_smile:


#1138

£70k according to Hifi+

I’m still intrigued to learn what the top secret, ‘patent applied for’ technology is. All the journos who were told about it had to sign an NDA so I guess we’ll have to wait.


#1140

At £70k I am prepared to wait for a very, very long time. I need the fuglies/£ to be a little more sensible :unamused:

Yes!


#1143

It runs backwards. :face_with_raised_eyebrow:

#1145

Ah yes, that Icelandic heavy metal outfit


#1146

I’m assuming the statement in question is “we know how to royally screw up a classically elegant turntable”.


#1147

There’s a counter-rotating platter hidden underneath.
