Sandringham Suite 4 - Planalogue
Peter Laitt, founder of Planalogue, will be demonstrating the company's first turntable, dubbed the Prelude which was debuted at last year's Hi-Fi Show Live. The product of many years in design, the Prelude employs a sensitively-matched range of materials in its construction. The plinth adopts a constrained layer structure to reduce internal resonances, while the belt-driven platter is machined from acrylic and is supported on a stainless/brass/Delrin bearing assembly. A separate motor controller ensures smooth, stable speed to the offboard AC motor and includes electronic switching for 33.3 and 45 rpm.
Partnering Planalogue is the legendary driver manufacturer Markaudio-SOTA who, in another World Exclusive at the Hi-Fi Show Live, will be premiering its new Viotti Tower. From floorstanders to small bookshelf models, the Markaudio-SOTA range delivers liquid sound matched with gorgeous, modern styling.
Black Rhodium Cables will also be showing its latest products, including a new range of tonearm cables called Silver Groove. Listen with us and experience the difference between various tone arm cable specifications, and enjoy a fast, agile sound combined with detail and body from the whole cable range.
