High fidelity meets low price. The Orbit Basic features a precision gimbal tonearm, pre-installed Audio-Technica cartridge, low-resonance MDF platter, and vibration damping feet. The manual belt drive decouples the motor from the platter, which eliminates motor noise and delivers excellent speed consistency at both 33 and 45 RPM. The Orbit Basic comes with a dust cover, felt mat, and RCA cables. All turntables and accessories are made in Boston, MA.
