Bornrich: When you are spending some good bucks on a piece of passé technology like a turntable, you undoubtedly want it to be the best. For all those individuals yearning for exclusivity and for a stylish reflection of personal panache, Audio Consulting’s new entry-level turntable R-evolution Minima seems to be a great option. The elegant turntable boasts the same highly optimized direct drive setup and axe assembly as with the R-evolution Stealth. The turntable uses only 2 watts of power during operation.
Smaller and simpler than the Stealth model, the R-evolution Minima turntable has its platter made of wood, which accounts for optimum sound performance. Since it runs on battery, there is no problem of perturbations caused by the main supply. Other features include a leather mat and oiled wooden frame.
The Audio Consulting’s R-evolution Minima turntable sells for CHF 24,500 (about $28,400).
