Don't give up on your amateur DJ dreams just yet. Andover Audio has announced the release of its Spindeck belt-drive turntable, which can be used with the company's convenient Spinbase Turntable Speaker System or audio systems. Andover Audio boasts that the plug-and-play turntable is designed to simplify setup and is sturdily constructed.
Spindeck ($299) offers users of all backgrounds a plug-and-play turntable right out of the box. Featuring high-quality materials and precision-engineered parts, Spindeck is the perfect vinyl-playing addition to Andover's Spinbase Turntable Speaker System, or any audio system. Spindeck simplifies turntable setup with a tonearm featuring a pre-set counterweight and pre-mounted Ortofon Custom OM Series cartridge. The main chassis of the turntable is made from engineered particle board, which is sturdy yet light weight. Housed underneath the chassis is an ultra-quiet synchronous motor with a silicone belt that drives a low-resonance platter made from MDF. An AC-powered motor control effectively minimizes unwanted vibration. The main platter bearing consists of a stainless-steel spindle and a bronze bushing with a Teflon bottom, to ensure long-lasting playback.
"Spindeck is a precision turntable that features high-quality materials and superb sound. It comes out of the box pre-set and ready to play. Its simplicity belies its elegant engineering that will extract the most from records with minimum wear. It's the perfect companion to our Spinbase turntable speaker system, or any other system where the listener wants great sound with no fuss." - Bob Hazelwood, Director of Engineering, Andover Audio
