The really powerful built-in direct drive is characterised by low synchronisation fluctuations. Unlike a belt-driven turntable, the VNL-500 USB transfers motor power directly to the drive hub - so power to the precision-machined die-cast platter is generated faster, thanks to the higher torque.
The pitch section with a range of +/-10 % is also suitable for really fine speed adjustments.
The VNL-500 USB features a static balanced S-shaped tonearm with hydraulic lift and anti-skating mechanism. A wide range of cartridge systems can be connected via the universal cartridge connector (SME).
The turntable offers a digital USB output, making it easy to digitise vinyl directly. Connect a computer to the USB port, open the recording software and start recording. No driver installation is necessary.
The integrated phono preamplifier allows you to connect to any phono or line input to your amplifier, with no need for a separate grounding cable.
The scratch-resistant surface in brushed look has start/stop buttons, as well as 33 1/3 and 45 speed settings. The robust construction, with optimised damping properties, reduces vibration and shock-absorbing feet add further insulation.
The VNL-500 USB comes with a high-quality OM Black pick-up system made by Ortofon and a matching headshell for an instant listening experience.
