As the unique sound of vinyl establishes itself in history for the second time, the modern turntable has begun to exhibit characteristics that were totally unknown when in their heyday. A prime example of this is the new Fern & Roby Montrose Turntable( ($4,950). While it’s belt-driven like traditional turntables, the Montrose uses a precision-cut optical interrupter wheel to determine the speed of the platter 48 times per revolution for unparalleled playback accuracy.

Another development that makes this modern turntable a superior playback system for vinyl is the Unipivot tonearm developed for quick adjustment via the two hex wrenches provided. Finally, for best results, the base sits on 4 top-accessible leveling feet and a Sorbothane cork isolation pad!

Just like their other turntables, each Fern & Roby Montrose is individually hand-crafted to assure the highest build & sound quality.
