ProJect VT-E BT.
Project's entry-level series consists of a variety of high quality, well-built turntables that have been truly optimised to bring your favourite vinyl records to life. The level of build quality and accuracy of sound reproduction that these turntable models are capable of is truly astonishing. Many lesser brands strive to achieve this level of performance in their intermediate/higher end models, let alone their entry level series.
The VTE is the company's first ever vertical turntable release. This innovative design is a prime example of ProJect's commitment to pushign the boundaries and highlights their dedication to stand-out against the crowd, in terms of both quality of sound and meticulous design. The VTE can be used on a tabletop using the supplied feet, or it can be mounted to a wall for an unobtrusive, space-saving performance.
The Bluetooth alternative allows you to play your vinyl records through the VTE BT and send the signal to a Bluetooth receiver connected to your existing hifi system. The benefit of this is that you are more freely able to place or wallmount the VTE turntable and play your vinyl records without needing a long RCA cable or having to place the amplifier directly near the turntable. Simple connect a Bluetooth receiver, such as the ProJect Bluetooth Box or Arcam Mini Blink, to your amplifier and pair the turntable to it for wireless playback.
Technologically, the VTE features much of the design principles and engineering philosophies that can be found on the popular entry level Elemental model. A pre-set tonearm and cartridge allow for a quick set-up process without hassle - all you have to do is place the belt and platter, plug in and play.
The plinth is built from an acoustically neutral medium-density fibreboard and when combined with the supplied record clamp, offers a secure and stable playback without unwanted resonance or slipping. The VT-E's motor is the same as that of other award winning ProJect models, boasting a built-in AC generator to ensure a reliable speed stability with a truly minimum level of unwanted noise. The VT-E also comes supplied with a quality Connect-IT phono interconnect for reliable use with an external phono stage.
The VT-E is available in a matt black, red or white finish depending on preference and comes supplied with all the necessary accessories needed to get you going.
A left-handed version of the VT-E is available to special order in the United Kingdom. Get in touch for more information.
Ruark Audio MR-1 (Mark 2)
Ruark Audio is a family-owned British company, founded in 2006 who specialise in compact lifestyle radio systems. The company found massive success with the launch of their first unit, the R1, which has since evolved into its third rendition. Shortly after the R1 was launched, a multitude of larger and more prolific products began to appear on Ruark's catalogue and soon after, the same products would be seen in kitchens, bedrooms, offices and living rooms all over the world.
The mark 2 version of the MR1 sees the same favoured attributes of the first version improved upon to form an even more outstanding pair of compact active loudspeakers. While they retain the same minimal profile and dimensions, the aesthetic design has been enhanced to make them even more appealing to design conscious customers and allow for an evebn easier integration with existing decor.
The MR1 Mk 2 offers a wide range of connectivity options. Bluetooh aptX lossless streaming capability allows for a direct wireless transfer of music from a mobile phone. A digital optical input means that external digital sources can be used with the MR1 without compromise, including televisions and Chromecast boxes. an analogue auxiliary input caters to essentially all other sources, including a turntable when used with an appropriate phonostage
