Reloop has announced their HiFi TURN 2, a belt-driven turntable made for vinyl purists wanting to immerse themselves in the world of analogue listening pleasure. Some key features of the turntable include a smooth belt drive and low-noise DC motor, a new straight tonearm design with optimal tracking performance, and a heavy MDF plinth with an elegant, slim line design. The TURN 2 is ready to use right out of the box. A new straight tonearm design allows for optimal tracking performance with an angled headshell and Ortofon cartridge that sits perfectly in the groove of the record.
ANALOGUE HIFI TURNTABLE FOR AUDIO PURISTS.
The precise belt drive on the TURN2 ensures a consistent platter speed with minimal wow and flutter. The built-in, low-vibration DC motor is extremely quiet meaning the TURN2 can be ideally set up in listening environments or living rooms. The integrated motor control can be conveniently switched between 33 1/3 and 45 RPM using the speed selector switch, which is located underneath the chassis in keeping with the player’s minimal styling.
The TURN2 is fitted with a static balanced, straight tone arm, with an angled headshell and Ortofon cartridge that sits perfectly in the groove of the record. The manual tone arm lift allows the needle to be precisely lowered onto the record. The anti-skating mechanism ensures the best possible tracking performance.
Alongside the connection for the external DC power supply, the rear of the TURN2 features two gold-plated, corrosion-resistant RCA connections and a separate earth connection to prevent the possibility of ground loops. All cable connections are removable, allowing for easy replacement or later upgrade. The heavy MDF plinth has an extremely slimline design and is available in a matt black, red or white finish. A high-inertia die cast aluminium platter with chrome edging harmoniously rounds off the elegant design of the TURN2.
