Fully automatic turntable with built in switchable phono stage. Make playing easy, put vinyl on and press a button!

The PL-30 is designed from the ground up with one single goal in mind: to play vinyl records in very good quality whilst making it as easy as possible. This turntable is fully automatic, which means that the tone arm will be positioned exactly above the very first grooves of the record and will then gently be lowered to start the music. All by pushing a single button. When the record is finished, the tone arm will automatically return to its base.

The PL-30 has a double-layered chassis with a 4 mm metal bottom plate to protect the turntable against unwanted vibrations. Furthermore, the aluminium platter and the aluminium die-cast tone arm damp any remaining vibrations, so the musical signal remains untouched. Even the 5 mm thick rubber mat that rests on top of the platter is designed to stop vibrations.

A useful feature of the PL-30 is the built-in phono pre-amplifier. It uses high quality capacitors in the signal path, to guarantee the best possible musical performance. This phono pre-amplifier allows connecting the PL-30 directly to virtually any amplifier, AV-Receiver or compact system. This is not possible when using an ordinary turntable, because an external phono pre-amplifier needs to be inserted to boost and to equalise the signal first. However, if needed the PL-30's built-in phono pre-amplifier can be bypassed as well.

The PL-30 is equipped with an exchangeable high quality Audio Technica MM (Moving Magnet) cartridge. It's easily possible to upgrade the cartridge at any point to gain even greater sound quality.
