The new SG1.2 turntable from Spiral Groove is the cooler sister of the original SG1.1 model. And by cooler we mean both better and more expensive, ranking high on the best high-end turntables list.
A series of finely-tuned adjustments have been performed on the new model in order to insure impeccable sound delivery in various types of environment. Turntables produce sound as their styluses vibrate in the tiny grooves of the records, so it makes perfect sense that you want as little extra vibrations as possible around your device. The stylus is a highly precise, highly-sensitive element which can pick up even those unwanted vibrations coming from random activities such as dancing around the device.

In order to reduce such interferences, the Berkley, California based company has upped the weight of the turntable, thus improving its stability. The platter has suffered most of the change, but the main platform is also heftier. In addition to that, the feet have been upgraded to ensure better isolation and vibration absorption.
And to top it all off, the new model flaunts an easy-to-change tonearm, which can be easily popped out (there’s a special button for that) and swapped for a different, pre-calibrated one. Having a separate tonearm and stylus for your different types of vinyl record can elevate your listening experience to new levels of joy. You can have all this for $30,000, or you can pay $6,000 to have your original SG1.1 version upgraded.
