Turntables are, of course, having a “moment”, and so it’s no surprise that Reloop – one of Europe’s most prolific turntable brands – has added a new one to its roster. It’s actually an update to an existing model, the budget-friendly RP-4000, and is unsurprisingly titled the Reloop RP-4000 MK2.
The new direct drive quartz-driven DJ turntable offers a newly tooled top panel with better buttons, which are now metallic. It has a high torque of 1.8km/cm, and benefits from dual range pitch control (+/-8% or +/-16%), three speeds (33 1/3, 45, 78), a pitch reset button, and a standard S-shaped tone arm. Output is 2 x phono, and there’s an earth pin too.
Unlike many turntables, the RP-4000 MK2 comes complete with a headshell and OM Black Ortofon cartridge, meaning it will work straight from the box.
The Reloop RP-4000 MK2 is priced at €289 / $299 / £265, and will be available from the beginning of May 2018. An optional hard plastic lid will also be available.
