Buy NAD C 558 Turntable Online

 

NAD C 558 is a full-featured, belt-driven turntable targeted for record enthusiasts everywhere.

Pre-fitted with an Ortofon OM10 phono cartridge, the C 558 features a belt drive for maximum noise isolation, as well as a precision AC motor with isolated AC power supply that has universal voltage. Complimented by a glass platter with felt pad, a MDF plinth, and a low resonance dust cover, the C 558 delivers an outstanding listening experience unlike any other.

We like the fact that it is fitted with light weight aluninium tonearm. It has a slightly warmer sound. And the OM10 is a perfect match for this. OM10 is equivalent for 2M Red but more suitable for light weight tonearm. It also has stronger and more extended bass. The real magic of this turntable is the 1.7kg glass platter. It really rocks.

Buy Pro-Ject The Classic Sub-Chassis Turntable

 

Launched in 2016 in conjunction with Pro-ject Audio’s 25th anniversary, The Classic Sub-Chassis Turntable is inspired by famous turntables of the 50’s and 60’s (like the legendary Lenco L75, Thorens & Linn). The traditional wood frame sub-chassis is marvelous. It’s a timeless classic.

Thanks to the modern damping materials TPE (Thermo Plastic Elastomers) below the main platter, it very effectively isolates the platter and tonearm from the resonances of the motor and main plinth. It utilised Japanese ball bearing below the tonearm for extra smooth movement.

Available in three finishing: Walnut, Eucalyptus & Rosenut. Also sold without cartridge or with upgrades to 2M Blue cartridge.

Buy Pro-Ject Debut Carbon Turntable from Authorised Singapore Retailer

debug carbon awards

The first Debut turntable, introduced in the late 1990s, was a revolution for the hi-fi industry. For the first time after the arrival of Compact Disc and the assumed demise of vinyl records, an analogue product re-emerged in the “mass market” – something all music lovers could afford.

The new DEBUT Carbon DC was designed to set new standards in this category for the coming decade – perfectly timed as analogue today is again a respected source, while the demand for good turntables is growing again!

The most obvious improvement is the inclusion of a CARBON TUBE for the tonearm, which increases stiffness and decreases unwanted resonance.

This material normally is extensively used in high-end tonearms, but – because of cost reasons – was never used in products at lower price levels. Together with other improvements like an increase in platter size and weight to realize even smoother rotation, the overall sound quality is greatly improved. The approved belt drive design offers low noise AC motor with effective motor decoupling (utilising TPE-damping) and ultra precision frequency DC-driven AC generator (like Speed Box) for ultimate speed stability without unwanted vibration.
