Schiit Sol Cast Aluminum Turntable

 

Schiit Sol Cast Aluminum Turntable

 

  Schiit's new Sol Cast Aluminum Turntable ($799) doesn't look like any other affordable turntable in the world. That's because it's designed to deliver the most amazing performance possible for the bucks, without regard to how it "should" look. If you want a normal-looking turntable, there are tons of choices. Schiit's Sol is the result of six years of R&D at Schiit Audio. Some may say we're just slow (and that may be true), but Sol also went through many iterations to reach its final form. That's how we landed on something completely unique, a true unconstrained unipivot design based on aluminum die castings, with not a piece of MDF or acrylic in sight. That's also how we decided to include an insane amount of high-end features, like on-the-fly adjustable VTA.

As an example of Schiit's dedication to performance, Sol's motor is completely separated from the plinth and platter, housed in a separate, Sorbothane-isolated pod that completely decouples it from the rest of the turntable. A Poron foam platter mat completes the isolation from environmental vibration.

Sol features a carbon fiber tonearm that is longer than anything else in its price class a full 11" long. A longer arm means more accurate tracking much better than the "baby arms" of other affordable turntables. Not only that, the Sol tonearm can be swapped in seconds, allowing you to set up multiple cartridges on multiple tonearms for your specific needs.

Sol was also designed to help you extract the maximum performance from every cartridge. Literally everything is adjustable. From on-the-fly VTA, cartridge angle, anti-skate, and even tonearm pivot height, platter height, and motor pulley height, we have you covered. You'll be comfortable using an expensive cartridge with Sol, knowing you're getting the most out of it.

If you already own an inexpensive turntable, but you're looking for maximum performance (without a second mortgage), Sol is perfect for you. Choose Sol, choose your ideal cartridge (Sol does not come with a cartridge), set it up to the nth degree with the help of our videos, and you'll be far, far ahead in analog performance, without spending a fortune.

By "designed and assembled in USA" this is what we mean: the vast majority of the total production cost of Sol including the die-cast aluminum pieces, machined and stamped metal pieces, boards, assembly, etc goes to US companies manufacturing wthin the US. Our castings are done just beyond the Orange Curtain, many subassemblies are done in Simi Valley, and assembly, adjustment, and testing are done by us in Valencia, CA. You get the picture.

Schiit's Sol is also covered by a five year limited warranty that covers parts and labor (with a single exception: belts). Come on, do you really think a turntable belt will last five years? Learn more about the spectacular Schiit Sol turntable at this link.
