Azimuth & VTA

The X2 comes with fully adjustable Azimuth & VTA. It offers you the possibility to modify your X2 as you want it.

2 kg Platter

The perfect platform to place your precious vinyl records, guaranteeing absolute reliability in its performance and sonic character.

33/45/78 RPM

A sophisticated DC/AC generator board generates clean and stable power to drive the motor. Easily change speed with the push of only a single button.

New Motor Suspension

A good motor by itself, is already very quiet. To get the best performance out of it, we have improved the motor suspension. The X2‘s motor chassis is carefully balanced and suspended on a precision tuned TPE belt - this way the motor chassis is effectively decoupled from the main plinth for optimal performance.

9'' Carbon-Aluminium Tonearm

Compared with its little brother the X1, the tonearm is longer - 9“ in length - and the tube has a wider diameter. The carbon/aluminium sandwhich construction results in better internal damping. The increased mass makes the tonearm an excellent fit for low compliance MC cartridges.

Metal Feet

The three height adjustable damped aluminium feet guarantee the perfect stand & massively reduce risk of acoustical feedback.

The Tonearm

Finished as a one-piece, with no resonance-inducing headshell, the X2 can also be set for azimuth and VTA adjustment. The tonearm is then supplied with a TPE-damped counterweight.

Phono Cable

To guarantee a perfect connection to your amp you will find a high-quality phono RCA cable in the box. Our Connect it E is a semi-balanced, low-capacitance cable, with superior shielding.

love, Love, LOVE it
This is a great turntable. It is very well made. It was super easy to set up. Almost all of the settings for the pre-installed cartridge were dead on and required little or no adjustments. The Sumiko Moonstone cartridge that came with the unit is fantastic. It gives a nice slightly warm/vintage quality to the sound that I really like. It is not as 'over processed' of a sound (that can sound like listening to a CD at times) of a comparable cartridge like an Ortofon Bronze has, yet you still catch a lot of high end subtleties. I have been having a wonderful vinyl listening experience thus far. I highly recommend this unit.

X2 Turntable with Moonstone Cartridge (Walnut)
This is a really nice turntable. It looks great and sounds incredible. Pretty well set up out of the box as well with the pre-installed cartridge. Very little to no adjustments were required on my part to complete the set up. Love the Sumiko Moonstone cartridge. The sound is very natural and slightly vintage/warm. There is not a lot of processing going on with the sound that comes out of this unit, which I like. If I wanted processed sound, I would listen to CDs.
