Drawing inspiration from Dieter Rams' iconic 1955 Braun PC 3 SV record player, Gearbox's MKII turntable brings back the compact, transparent aesthetic that helped their previous model stand out, but adds an upgraded belt drive with an aluminum pulley for better speed stability as well as upgraded electronics throughout for a performance boost. The plug and play table is made with a high-fidelity built-in phono stage which is specifically designed for cartridges like the included Ortofon OM10 that's pre-fitted to an ultra-low-mass tonearm.
