Pre-Order Policy

  • If you want to order additional items (including other pre-orders), please make separate orders. Otherwise, we will hold your order until all items are in stock and ready to ship.
  • Scheduled ship dates are always estimates which are subject to change. If there is a substantial delay, we will contact you directly.


  • audiophile-caliber turntable w/ fully-automatic operation - switch activates motor and tonearm moves onto record; returns at the end of the side and shuts off motor (also works manually)
  • includes pre-mounted Sumiko Rainier cartridge ($150 when purchased separately)
  • switch between 33 / 45 / 78 rotation speeds w/ selector switch
  • heavy MDF plinth reduces unwanted resonance + isolates turntable from external vibration
  • tonearm, platter bearing + motor are affixed to a separate floating sub-chassis for further isolation from external noise, resonance + interference
  • 8.3″ ultra-light aluminum tonearm w/ carbon fiber reinforced anti-magnetic headshell
  • damped aluminum platter (vibration absorbing material underneath platter)
  • removable dust cover
  • high quality Connect-It E cable included ($69 on its own)
  • handmade in Germany
  • note: this turntable requires a phono preamp

"The A2 perpetuates the success of our A1 record player, building on our range of mechanical, fully automatic turntables. The A2 allows you to select the lateral location where the tonearm drops to the record groove with the dial for 7″ or 12″ records. For additional flexibility, we’ve added 78rpm to the speed selector dial, allowing you to dust off your collection of old 10″ shellac records (please manually position the tonearm for 10″ 78s, then use the dampened cueing lever). Why a suspended sub-chassis design? The automatic mechanism is sizable and comprised of many parts. Thusly it requires a substantial cutout from the main plinth. Enclosed hollow spaces in turntables are cavernous propagators of vibration & resonance. By employing a suspended sub-chassis, we decouple the tonearm, cartridge and drive mechanism from the solid, high-mass main chassis, eliminating hollow spaces and their adverse effects on sound quality." - Pro-Ject
