Who’d have though it that a concept turntable under a glass case would cause such interest at Musikmesse 2014? In the interests of fairness, we decided to shoot around the show today snapping every turntable we could see. You can view them all in the gallery below.
From the aforementioned forthcoming Pioneer model to the venerable old Technics and everything in-between, here are models from Reloop, Numark, Vestax, Stanton and Audio Technica, most of which have been around for a while but some – notable the Reloops – which are very new. Is this the end of the story? Not likely. We’ve got a strong suspicion (read: well-educated guess) that more new turntable innovations from other manufacturers are just around the corner. Watch this space…
Do you own or have you owned any of these? If Pioneer or indeed any other manufacturers bring new models to the market, what would you like to see included on them? Is a straight Technics copy just what’s needed? Or is all this turntable talk nothing more than a dose of April madness, just a bit early? Please share your thoughts in the comments!
