Reloop has announced a gold version of its RP-7000 high-end turntable ahead of this week’s Musikmesse 2016. The RP-7000 GLD is in commemoration of the company’s 20th anniversary and will be a limited edition of 1000 pieces, each bearing a plate with its serial number etched.
It also comes with a gold headshell and record cleaner. A gold Concorde turntable cartridge by Ortofon will also be made available to complement the RP-7000 GLD.
We really liked the performance, value, and sturdy build of the original Reloop RP-7000, and this RP-7000 GLD gold edition just makes it an even more attractive proposition if you’re into adding a bit of bling in your set-up. We’re en route to Frankfurt right now for the show, so check back for our coverage on it.
• The Reloop RP-7000 GLD will be available from August 2016 for €549, while the gold Ortofon Concorde cartridge will be available from June 2016 for €89. Check the Reloop website for more details.
