Vinyl enthusiasts have something new to look forward to as turntable manufacturer Lenco unveils its latest offering, the Lenco LBT-345WA turntable. Combining classic design elements with modern technology, this flagship model aims to deliver a premium listening experience without compromising on convenience.

At the heart of the LBT-345WA lies the renowned Ortofon 2M Red cartridge, known for its fidelity and accuracy in reproducing sound. Complementing this cartridge is a custom-designed carbon-fiber tonearm, engineered to minimize resonance and deliver clear, distortion-free audio.

One notable feature of the LBT-345WA is its built-in switchable phono stage, allowing for seamless integration with a variety of audio setups, including active speakers and systems lacking a dedicated phono stage. Additionally, the turntable offers Bluetooth connectivity, enabling wireless playback on compatible speakers and headphones, adding a layer of convenience to the listening experience.

Designed with user convenience in mind, the LBT-345WA features a variable counterweight and adjustable anti-skating device to ensure precise tracking of the tonearm, resulting in optimal sound reproduction. Moreover, the inclusion of a chrome-plated record stabilizer further enhances stability during playback, minimizing vibrations and ensuring balanced sound output.

Available in both black gloss and walnut finishes, the LBT-345WA exudes a timeless aesthetic that complements any listening space. Whether placed in a contemporary living room or a vintage-inspired den, this turntable adds a touch of elegance to any environment.

In addition to its impressive performance capabilities, the LBT-345WA offers modern conveniences such as a USB output for digitizing vinyl records, making it easy to preserve cherished music collections in digital formats. Furthermore, the turntable comes equipped with a deluxe felt slip mat and a detachable clear dust cover, providing added protection for vinyl records.
