Product Information

Essential II Turntable With Ortofon's OM5e Phono Cartridge - Turntable innovation for vinyl starters with class-leading sound quality!

A quiet-running synchronous motor with silicone belt is driving a low-resonance platter made from MDF. A new motor control with DC power supply minimizes unwanted vibration effectively. The main platter bearing consists of stainless steel spindle and bronze bushing with Teflon bottom to secure low friction.

The main chassis is made from lightweight, but very stiff particle board. Essential II utilizes a straight 8,6" aluminium tonearm design made from a single piece of aluminium with sapphire bearings, which offers a far better "plug & play" solution, than its predecessor. Special feet effectively decouple the turntable from the surface.

The Essential II Turntable comes with Ortofon's OM5e phono cartridge. The OM 5E is a magnetic cartridge (MM) with an elliptical shaped stylus that provides balanced and distortion-free playback for general purpose applications.
