Raw Power: VPI Nomad
Now you can play your vinyl anywhere – no hi-fi system required.
If you love the smell of vinyl in the morning, then the turntable/record deck is arguably the most important piece of your hi-fi system.
It’s also the simplest to understand. With little in the way of electronic goings-on to speak of under the bonnet, all it really does when performing perfectly is go round and round at exactly the same precise speed, relentlessly, with the elegant celestial simplicity of the Sun orbiting the Earth. [Er, our Science Ed is on holiday right now, in a galaxy far, far away, but that orbiting bit doesn’t sound right to me… Ed.] And – it’s usually driven by something as simple as a rubber band!
