Increase in popularity of contemporary acrylic turntables

Updated: Apr 10, 2023



Contemporary acrylic turntables have been growing in popularity in recent years, thanks to their unique design and enhanced sound quality. Some of the more unique turntables feature a clear acrylic plinth that provides a sleek and modern look, while also reducing vibrations and unwanted resonances that can affect the sound quality. One of the most highly regarded acrylic turntables on the market today is the Audio-Technica Limited Edition Model LP2022, (if you can get one) which comes with a custom LED isolation platform that further enhances its performance.

The Audio-Technica Limited Edition Model LP2022 turntable features a high-torque direct-drive motor that provides stable rotation and precise speed control. It also comes with a J-shaped tonearm that minimizes tracking error and delivers clear and accurate sound. But what sets this turntable apart is our custom LED isolation platform, which is designed to reduce external vibrations and improve the sound quality even further. The platform features a clear acrylic top panel with built-in LEDs that illuminate the turntable, adding a cool visual effect to your listening experience.

One of the reasons why contemporary acrylic turntables like the Audio-Technica Limited Edition Model LP2022 have become so popular is their ability to deliver high-quality sound at an affordable price for Audio Enthusiasts.

In addition to the #Audiotechnica Limited Edition Model LP2022, there are many other acrylic turntables available on the market today that our Stable Sound LED Anti vibration platforms are perfect for, from brands like #Project, #Fluance, and #Clearaudio.
