The Orbit Plus Turntable from U-Turn Audio

All of you, passionate listeners and music addicts out there will agree that music sounds better on vinyl. It does, and that’s that! To play a vinyl record you need a turntable, but due to the fact that, over the past few decades, digital music has become increasingly more accessible, portable and generally easier to play, turntables have become more or less an endangered species.

It seems that nowadays only professional DJs had a need for them – and those are far from affordable. However, recent years have brought with themselves that retro fan and style which, in turn, meant a resurrection for vinyls and turntables. The Orbit Plus Turntable by U-Turn Audio just might be the best-looking one of the bunch. It’s sleek, minimalistic and sexy. Hey, if it also sounds good, I’m getting one!

The Orbit Plus features a fully-manual belt drive, an acrylic platter, vibration damping feet, a 24-volt synchronous motor and an Audio-Technica AT95E phono cartridge. And, if you’re worried about that dull, black color, forget about it: the Orbit is available in three different colors – black, blue and green. So, if you’re looking to explore the wonderful world of vinyl and enjoy some good music while sitting in the dark, it seems the Orbit Plus Turntable is he way to go. I recommend the Led Zeppelin discography for a first audition.
