Andover Audio, a relatively new company, best known for their tremendous all-in-one vinyl systems, now has a standalone turntable to call their own.
It’s called the Spindeck, an $299 vinyl player born out of a joint venture with Austria based Pro-Ject. Anyone familiar with Pro-Ject’s highly respected turntables can see their elegant design DNA in this new product.
The Spindeck is designed to bring quality vinyl playback to the masses by combining plug and play operation along with precision materials. It features an aluminum tonearm with Sapphire bearings, a low-resonance MDF platter driven by an ultra-quiet AC motor, and gold-plated RCA interconnects.
If you’ve been itching to try vinyl but are turned off by the setup process, this turntable’s pre-set tonearm and pre-mounted Ortofon cartridge make it ready to go out of the box.
Essentially it’s a perfect sonic and aesthetic companion for Andover’s much sought after Spinbase speaker (review coming soon). When combined, they should form an astonishing compact hi-fi system similar to the combo Andover previously offered on their site with the Pro-Ject T1 turntable.
The Spindeck is currently available at www.andoveraudio.com or participating dealers.
