Wheel Turntable

Reducing the turntable to its most basic elements, the Miniot Wheel Turntable ($600) cleverly hides its components behind the record itself. An electronically-stabilized belt drive spins the heavy aluminum platter at a perfect 33.3 rpm, while the outer ring secures the record and eliminates resonance.

The tonearm, modified AT95E cartridge, drive, amp, and electronics sit in a vibration-isolated block inside a cavity in the platter, and it’s all controlled by the center stick. A wood base in walnut, cherry, or mahogany gives the minimal design an added bit of finish. Made in Holland.
