The world's most affordable audiophile turntables.
Origin: Woburn, MA
A turntable is a turntable, right? WRONG!! The recent wakening (or reawakening) of many people regarding the musical joy buried within those vinyl grooves has given rise to to an assortment of companies peddling pure garbage disguised as turntables. We hate to name names, but those brands you find at Urban Outfitters are no longer making tables the way they used to. For a detailed explanation of why that stuff...er...sucks, don't take our word for it, read our January 16th blog post citing extensive third party research.

U-TURN ORBIT BASIC
Starting at under $200.
From the U-Turn site:
We were started by three music lovers who believe you shouldn’t have to overpay for a great listening experience. In college, we found that our budgets were at odds with our ears. We had to choose between overpriced turntables that we couldn’t afford and cheap turntables that we couldn’t bear to listen to. So we decided to build our own.
In 2012, we launched a Kickstarter campaign for the Orbit Turntable, “an all-analog turntable for today’s vinyl listener.” The feedback was overwhelmingly positive, and we have been building turntables and taking names ever since.
By doing all of our own design and engineering, keeping our manufacturing in-house, and engaging with customers directly, we’re able to provide high-quality turntables at affordable prices. We value simple design, quality craftsmanship, and personal customer service.
