Product Disclaimer: I have no affiliation with this product or the previous turntable I posted here. They are posted as FYI "curiosity" only products. I remain more than thrilled with my current VPI-HRX.


This turntable is a "kick starter funded product. It is as "simple" as the Air Bearing\Air Suspension table is complicated. The low price is directly related to the sourcing of some parts from Project Turntables parts bins, so it does not make any "high end" performance claims at this time.

It's hard to tell because the camera is not being held steady but it looks like the platter is wobbling slightly as it is turning. Interesting though.

+1

Another concern is how do they address the potential interference of the magnetic stray on the cartridge.

This table has so many design flaws that it will never be mistaken for a serious vinyl replay system. Imho, it is more of a novelty and curiosity piece. I will admit though, it does looks cool.

How many unsuspecting nitwits are going to buy into this BS? Sad because for the same money they could actually get a decent turntable....
