  Celebrating 29 Years Of Service To Music Lovers



Vinyl LP Turntable Lust Page


LothX Othello

  The above turntable is Loth X's entry level turntable called the Othello. It is for "music lovers who appreciate the of pleasures of vinyl playback but to whom price is an important criterion". The Othello is designed for ease of set up and absolute minimum operational hassle. The bearing is a special teflon/graphite line bearing  with an integral oil reservoir. A 46 millimeter (1 13/16) thick platter reduces vibrations to the playing surface to allow the music to shine through.

Lionel Spear-tone

  Seen here is the retro-groove-alistical original Spear-tone by Lionel!  This was a portable unit in wonderful orange (my fave color!).  The speaker is on the front-side of the unit so that the cover can be closed during playback.  If anyone has more information on this turntable please send me e-mail.  Thanks.


ELP Laser Turntable

  Where analog meets the digital domain, the ELP Laser Turntable has been one of, if not the most controversial turntable ever made!  Using a contact-free five laser system, the ELP Laser Turntable offers zero wear and tear to the vinyl and zero acoustic feedback plus it can play records warped upwards of 5-6mm!  Since independent lasers read the left and right channels, channel separation is taken to new highs too. Frequency response from 10 to 25,000 Hz is claimed while music. ELP claims that over ten years and 20 million dollars US were spent in developing the basic system!  This turntable is used by the National Library of Canada Music Division and also the National Theater of Japan.

Kuzma Stabi Turntable

Kuzma Stogi Tonearm

  Seen above is the highly acclaimed Kuzma Stabi turntable and Stogi Reference tonearm.  Made from richly finished oak, the base and cover help provide natural dampening and rigidity.  The subchassis is made from MDF wood which is suspended from a silicone oil enclosed spring structure.  The platter is machined from a piece of solid aluminum while rubber insures are used to assist in reducing music damaging resonant vibrations.  A PVC record clamp is also included.  The Stogi Reference tonearm is conical in shape and also made from a solid piece of aluminum.  An extremely high precision ABEC7 bearing is used for incredibly low friction/resistance.

  Remember in the 50's all those great record changers. Of course we all remember the Garrard, but there is life out there besides that one. Seen here is the Webster which could play in three speeds, three diameters of records, a total of two different groove widths, and two center-hole sizes. Ya know, all these various "standards" almost remind me of DVD! Of course we will all see if today's DVD player will be around fifty years from now like vinyl is.


Basis 2500

  Founded in 1986, a weird time to start a turntable company, AJ Conti never-the-less began Basis Audio and has been successfully making them ever since.  Seen here is the model 2500 with Graham Model 2 tonearm.  A two inch thick uniblock acrylic high-mass subchassis mounted on a fluid dampened suspension helps to keep vibrations from reaching the platter.  The platter itself is two inches thick and mass-loaded.  The fit and finish are extremely impressive and in beautiful gloss black.
