Extreme High Quality Very Affordable Turntable from Como Audio ... Made by Project $399

        The People Are Buying Vinyl Again. Turntables never stopped selling. Audio perfectionists continued to love the detailed analog sound, they insisted records have more life than CDs. And now that "playing vinyl" has become a trend. It's in to have vinyl. People never got rid of their records. They have music on record they never replaced on CD. Vinyl records and turntables are very popular. Sales of vinyl records were  up 50% over last year.

And now it is easy to transfer the record to CD or a computer hard drive or iPod. Ironically, it is now very popular to use computers as the main source of music.
        Belt Drive. The phono cartridge picks up vibrations in the record groove. If the motor creates vibrations, it picks those up and those low frequency sounds are called rumble. The belt drive isolates the motor from the platter so rumble is reduced.

        Servo Control. The DP-300 uses a servo control system to maintain accurate speed. A sensor in the motor detects and monitors the speed and adjust the motor to accurate play 33 rp or 45 rpms.
      Heavy Duty Construction. Turntables must not only rotate at an exact speed, but resist vibrations caused by the music itself, playing in the room. The MDF plinth is CNC machined to be thin and convereed with wood veneer. A heavy steel platter also helps to reduce resonance. Shown below are the shock absorbing feet that also help to isolate the turntable from air borne vibrations.

       Tonearm. A carefully designed straight tonearm designed for correct geometry to minimize tracking error. A high quality moving magnet phono cartridge is factory installed. An upgrade to Ortofon OM-5E moving magnetl cartridge is pre-mounted. Anti-skating force is provided. An arm lift gently lifts and lowers the arm to a different song selection on your album. The tonearm is counter balanced design, with low friction.
The tonearm uses a counter weight design, but to make things easier, the counterweight, anti-skating are all preset at the factory.
        Built-in Preamp. Most home theater receivers no longer include a phono input. The tape, CD, tuner, or TV inputs are looking for about a volt input level. The phono cartridge has about three thousandths of a volt. This small voltage must be amplified in the preamp. Additionally, to compensate for the way vinyl records are cut, the bass must be boosted and the high frequencies reduced. This is called RIAA equalization. The Como Analog includes a phono preamp with RIAA so it can be hooked directly into a low price mini system, aux or TV inputs on receivers that do not have phono inputs. For higher quality amps and receivers with phono input, you can switch the built-in preamp off,
Included is a RCA to mini stereo plug to connect to the aux input on the famous Como Audio radios.
