Finally, bring in the Gimp. I had a play around with the standard foam, silicone, neoprene, and cork/nitrile mats, and although there was much to like from all of them, I found myself returning to the balance of the standard foam; Or the cork, or maybe the neoprene. Truth is, you could almost be fine-tuning on a per record basis, but at between £10 and £15 each, you could also buy the lot and play.

That’s the thing about the Turntable One, especially with The Wand in place. It’s fun, unpretentious, fun, precise, fun, and fun. Like the Spacedeck and the Interspace, it doesn’t gloss over bad recordings and badly abused recordings, but it recalls your vinyl in a manner that will keep you listening long into the past, and not many turntables at the price can do that so effortlessly. Highly recommended.
