Known for its traditional yet modern look, U-Turn's Orbit Special turntable is becoming a timeless design that needed only minimal enhancements to make it our own. The first thing we did was locate some rift-sawn oak that we ebonized for the turntable's plinth, giving it an extra layer of texture. It's complemented by a mat cut from our signature bison leather, along with powder-coated black tonearm parts, and a custom on/off knob machined especially for this release. Thanks to the built-in pre-amp (no separate receiver or amp required) and pre-installed Ortofon OM 5E cartridge, you can hook it straight up to any pair of powered speakers and start playing, making it ideal if you're just getting into vinyl or just want a no-fuss setup. Also included is a blacked-out cue lever, RCA cables, and a dust cover.
