TURNTABLES, upgrades, parts, belts
Pro-Ject have models in the popular under $1000 price range that provide very good sound quality for their price.
We sell Origin Live models at factory direct pricing. They offer superior performance for money compared to other brands that come through a distributor chain which inflates their prices.
If you're looking for information regarding purchasing a turntable; Mark Baker, the owner of Origin Live postulates that the turntable deck provides 40% of the performance of a vinyl replay system (which includes tonearm 30%, cartridge 10%, phono preamp 15%, and support stand 5%). He has written a very useful guide "Vinyl Replay System Philosophy and Upgrading"
Here you will find hinges, lids, RPM adaptors...etc.
The turntable covers are prone to damage in transit, so a packing charge is necessary for the complete cover ($15) and DTL ($5).
A platter mat can make a big difference to a turntable, particularly ones with felt mats. If unsure which one to order contact us for a recommendation for your turntable.
There are a huge range of upgrades available for many turntables, particularly Linn and Rega. These include platter mats, motor controllers, platters, suspension kits, and vibration absorbers (in a separate category).
We can supply a turntable belt for almost any turntable. Our standard belts fit the majority of popular Japanese turntables from the 70s and 80s.
If the belt you need is not listed here please email us for a quote (firstname.lastname@example.org).
