What can our Turntables do for you?
The most important part of any vinyl reproduction system is the turntable itself. This must spin the disc with enormous consistency, while protecting it from physical noise generated by the outside world, or indeed by the turntable itself. There are belt drive turntables and direct drive models. Some feature traditional styling, while others are eye drawing in their radical layouts. Some feature built-in phono pre-amplifiers – the output from a phono cartridge may need to be pre-amplified by 40dB or more and subject to some extreme EQ to be suitable for use with a regular line input. Some even have USB connections, which can facilitate archiving your records to digital storage using a computer and free software, such as Audacity.
There are even some turntables which are network friendly and are able to send music to speakers in other rooms via MusicCast or other network audio products.

The best place to buy a turntable
There are two great ways to buy a turntable. The best way for most people is at a quality retail outlet in your city. That way you can have a listen, try some out, see whether they feel like a good “fit” for you. This is especially important with turntables since they are such tactile devices. And, of course, at such a store you can receive expert advice. But if you’re confident that you already know what you want, consider purchasing your turntable direct from us at Addicted To Audio. We are an authorised New Zealand reseller for all our products. We provide full service and after sales support. And we ship fast.
