A very sleek looking turntable is getting set to hit the market. It’s called the VPI HR-X1 turntable from TEAC. What makes it really stand apart is the size and the weight. This 52.5-kg or 116-pounds mechanism features a belt driven, 50-mm thick acrylic platter on an air suspension system at 33.3 or 45rpm. It even has a pair of 24 pole, 300rpm AC synchronous motors.
