Discover the best in record playing systems, turntables, phono stages and cartridges. We know a whole lot about record player set up and what sounds good because it’s what we enjoy. When you start to investigate a new record playing system today you’ll quickly find that you are spoilt for choice. We have listened to and sold many turntables over the years. What makes a system sound good comes down to some very simple principles – –the quality of design being most important….
The importance and performance gains to be had by selecting a better phono stage or amplifier are easy to underestimate. Until you hear them. Having the personal experience of stepping through a broad range of both cartridges and phono stages it has become obvious that the effect of the latter is at least as much as that of a cartridge. And that the benefit of improving both is cumulative– i.e. you’ll get better value and sound from your turntable system by considering both.
The stylus and cartridge are very much the business end of any record playing system, being in direct contact with the LP and converting the physical movement of the stylus into the electrical signal which flows through your hifi system. So your choice of phono cartridge will have an immediate and direct bearing on the sound you hear. There are a myriad of optiopns from entry level Nagoaka to state of the art – we’ve got the perfect choice for almost every turntable and level of expectation.
