Manual belt-drive turntable with pre-mounted Sumiko Rainier cartridge (Gloss Red)

Striking looks and solid sound quality

The RPM 1 Carbon doesn't look like most turntables on the market. Its unusual three-point low-resonance chassis helps resist vibrations that can obscure the fine sonic details you expect to hear when listening to vinyl.

Performance-minded perks

The turntable's heavy MDF platter spins on an inverted bearing with a ceramic ball for smooth, silent rotation. An isolated motor assembly and belt drive system keep vibration away from the chassis, preventing noise from being transferred to the cartridge. And the table's S-shaped tonearm is made from carbon fiber, aluminum, and resin for maximum rigidity and internal damping that minimize resonance.

Pre-mounted cartridge

The cherry on top of the proverbial sundae is a factory-mounted Sumiko Rainier moving magnet cartridge. The Rainier features an integrated body style and an elliptical diamond stylus that tracks a record groove with precision. Solid frequency response in the 15-25,000 Hz range ensures that you can hear every note in your favorite recordings.
