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! All 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.

Sold direct, additional markup is removed. The TROVATORE, successor to our Rondine 3, is more robust and made with greater precision in every detail. It is an all-new design, loosely based on proven suspended chassis designs of the 1960's. It is more robust and made with greater precision in every detail. It is a no compromise design.
Recommended for both audiophile and/or vintage records, it is ideally suited to archivists, collectors, or audiophiles. 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. All this with a small footprint!
Its large diameter spindle bearing results in both low friction and low noise. Critical parts have been made by a supplier who makes high tolerance parts for nuclear reactors. The standard 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 massive mat-less platter reveals all
the bass within your records. It will unveil the deep tones that were
missing in many of your lp records. On the other hand, your vintage records may have rumble built-in
from the recording lathe or warps.
Consider our rubber mat to minimize it.
