Marantz TT-15S1 Turntable - Belt Drive Turntable with Clearaudio Virtuoso Cartridge
The Marantz TT-15S1 Turntable - Belt Drive Turntable with Clearaudio Virtuoso Cartridge punches well above its weight.
Not only is this deck visually striking with its White Acrylic look, but it also offers incredible tone. Designed by Clearaudio and manufactured by Marantz, the TT-15S1 comes with a fantastic cartridge in the Clearaudio Virtuoso.
With the quality of sound being more important than ever, quality turntables are in higher demand than ever before. Digital discs simply set new performance standards that turntables must meet. Many cherished records may never be issued in digital formats. Marantz embraces an audiophile quality turntable with an AC servo belt-drive and low-coloration tone arm to answer the need for a high-performance source component for the analog record.
This turntable was designed by Clearaudio for Marantz. It is loaded with features normally found on much more expensive decks. It even comes with a Clearaudio Virtuoso Ebony Wood cartridge. This cartridge typically sells for $949 and offers staggering performance for the money.
While the Clearaudio Virtuoso cartridge is included, it is not pre-mounted. Please send me a message to discuss your options if you'd prefer I handle the set-up and testing for you.
