Product Information

Onkyo CP-1050 Direct Drive Turntable - Built and Engineered for Legendary Audio Performance

Aimed at music lovers looking to discover or rediscover the magic of analog sound, the CP-1050 features a super-smooth low-torque direct-drive motor that reduces low-frequency cogging noise as well as the high-frequency noise produced by some belt-driven designs which use a fast-spinning electric motor. The CP-1050 can play both 33s and 45s, and comes with an adapter for 7-inch records. The body is constructed from thick, vibration-damping MDF and the platter is die-cast aluminum for smooth, precise, and stable rotation. Together with the low-noise motor and rubber slip-mat, the precision craftsmanship and weight of the deck combine to effectively reduce vibration for clear and open analog sound.


Onkyo CP-1050 Turntable Features:

Innovative Direct Drive Plays Records Clean and Clear

  • Combined with a precision quartz-lock control system and quality bearings, this liquid-smooth drive provides a clearer window on the soul of your music. Die-cast aluminum platter and rubber slipmat provide stability and protection for your vinyl.

Aluminum Tonearm

  • At the business end of the aluminum tonearm is a detachable headshell that (together with an adjustable counterweight system) supports a range of aftermarket cartridges between 11/64 oz. and 11/32 oz. (5–10 grams).

Top-Shelf Connections

  • Two gold-plated pin-type RCA phono terminals output clean and clear left and right channel signals to your external phono preamp, stereo amplifier, or A/V receiver.

Est. 1946

  • As you would expect from a company that created its first crystal turntable pickup for the CP-1000 back in 1946, every aspect of the design has been engineered to deliver audio performance well beyond its price.
