Rek-O-Kut's
turntables are a large portion of our business. You can purchase a turntable to play 33 RPM records, but TRY to find something that plays 20 or 16 inch records!  Three of our tables offer such capabilities PLUS other convenient features!

We have sold these turntables to major record companies, major musicians, national libraries, and professional sound restorers around the globe.

All of our turntables adhere to basic conventional standards, i.e., they require that you have a hifi amplifier or receiver that has a phono input.  In recent years, this feature has become less common.  If you have an amplifier that has only high level inputs (usually labeled "Aux'), you will probably need a preamplifier.  We have several models for sale.

TROVATORE

 

Form Fits Function

With Transcription Disc

Ideally suited to archivists, collectors, or audiophiles, the TROVATORE is an all-new design, loosely based on the proven suspended chassis designs of the 1960's.  The TROVATORE  features 6 speeds:  33, 45, 76, 78, 80 and 90 rpm, and will accommodate any sized record up to 20 inches in diameter, including the common16 inch radio broadcast transcription.


Its low torque European-made DC motor, massive 8 lb platter and precision spindle bearing results in extremely low rumble.  Easy speed change is by a single knob.  The +/- 15% pitch control can correct almost any speed problem.  The arm height is adjustable for all phono pickups.

Employed in its construction are state of the art CAD design and precision ultrahigh tolerance CNC machining.  The spindle is removable for correcting eccentric records.  The acrylic platter is similar in composition to the actual disc played providing excellent dampening, a resultant neutral sound, and deep bass.

Its large diameter spindle bearing results in both low friction and low noise.  The Rek-O-Kut S-260 MKII low-friction, 12 inch arm is much longer than conventional arms and provides more accurate tracking of any record.  The entire playback mechanism is isolated by vibration absorbent pods.  Vertical cut discs are playable with a separately purchased, special headshell with cartridge or with our new Re-Equalizer III.

Its attractive base is made of hand-finished solid select American walnut.

The arm is upgradeable to our S-260-OD fluid damped arm (shown with special order @ $325.00 Padauk base).


An accessory, full dust cover is available.


Supplied with minimalist dust protection sheet.  Phono cartridge or styli must be purchased separately.  Recommended for both audiophile and/or vintage records.

While the massive mat-less platter reveals all the bass within records.  Your older records may have rumble built-in from the recording lathe.  You may wish to purchase our rubber mat to minimize it.
