Denon DP-A100 Turntable Preview
For audiophiles and history buffs, Denon is releasing its 100th anniversary DP-A100 turntable in conjunction with the company's other 100th year products.  It is available in a high gloss black wood veneer with three large adjustable damped aluminum cone feet and specialized 100th anniversary logo badging.With standard speed capabilities of 33-1/3 and 45rpm, the DP-A100 from Denon features a high torque direct drive motor (which is decoupled from the base) with quartz lock servo for high-precision rotation.  This translates into a 0.002% or less speed deviation and a 0.1% or less wow and flutter.  Rotation stability time is rated to 0.3 seconds or less to reach normal speed.  Combine these characteristics with the unit's hefty 33.7 pound weight and your vinyl collection will sound cleaner and more accurate than ever before.The DP-A100 turntable also features a static balance type, light ...

Music Hall MMF-2.2 LE Turntable Review
Last month I stopped into a large retailer with the initials “BB.” I wasn't shopping, per se, but verifying reports that among the rows of compact discs, DVDs and Blu-ray discs were dozens of new LPs. In 2010, who would have guessed that the venerable 33 rpm would enjoy a renaissance that not only includes big-box retail sales but those same establishments offering turntables among the scores of personal media players, flat panel TVs and other home theater accessories. Consumers shocked to see record players back on the shelves would do well to look beyond such stock and discover the numerous options for spinning vinyl that exist outside the strip malls. My discovery came several years ago, when I picked up a couple audio publications. One was a buyer's guide that included recommended components across several price and performance points. ...

Opera Consonance LP 6.1 Turntable and T988 Tonearm Review
Turntables are back. Actually, they never really went away, but during the dark decade of 1990 when compact discs threatened to make vinyl records extinct, it sure seemed so. Although we're living in the age of digital downloads, vinyl lovers have a bounty of spoils to satisfy their analog Jones. There is a constant flow of LPs being reissued by labels such as Rhino, and new turntables and accessories make 2010 a superb time to get into or rediscover vinyl. At one time, the Japanese held a significant share of the turntable – and hi-fi – market, with brands such as Technics and Denon enjoying widespread popularity across the U.S. Now, China has moved into high-end audio, and some of the greatest bargains are coming from The People's Republic. And the build quality can be very good. I've had great success with ...

Linn Sondek LP12 Turntable
Introduction Technology surrounding music reproduction is progressing at a skyrocketing rate. Consumers are being introduced to new digital formats, such as DVD-Audio and SACD, with promises of even greater resolution formats around the corner, like Blu-ray and HD-DVD. Since the inception of CD musical playback in the early ‘80s, most of those old enough to have experienced its processors, such as vinyl records, cassettes and eight track tapes, have since purged their collections of such relics in favor of the more convenient and seemingly “perfect” digital formats. Many consumers decided to let their ears decide which format sounded superior. What many of them found was that the compact disc was not all it was built up to be. Sure, the CD succeeded in eliminating some of the annoyances of the older generation formats, such as eight-track tape track changes, the poor ...
