Elipson’s Spin Class
The use of carbon-fibre has been extended from the tone arm to the sub-chassis to offer added rigidity and distinction, using functional components finished in chrome or brushed metal. This high-tech design creates a neo-vintage contrast with the nostalgia of the object itself.
The tone arm has been equipped with a premium Ortofon 2M RED cartridge and a new aluminium cueing lever lift arm has been added for an enhanced user-experience. The combination of a carbon-fibre sub-chassis, a suspended motor to eliminate friction and the digital speed motor for playback of 33-, 45- and 78rpm records creates an extra-solid, high-inertia turntable with high levels of precision engineering.
Due to the growth in vinyl from all age groups, demand for wireless connectivity and the subsequent convenience is also growing, so the Carbon can be easily connected to any Bluetooth speaker via its Aptx BT function. The carefully selected, state-of-the-art electronics also houses a premium phono stage/ preamp, allowing the user to connect the turntable to any amplifier. The USB output allows the user to make digital copies of his or her favorite records, which may then be played anywhere.
Available in two versions with or without pre-amp and Bluetooth, The Omega 100 RIAA BT Carbon Black will be in the UK from late August at £699 with the Omega 100 Carbon Black at £549 in September.
