Empire 598 Troubador
Classic belt-driven transcription turntable with cast aluminium platter, fitted with the Empire 990 tonearm.
The Empire 598 turntable was designed to far exceed professional standards of performance.
This instrument, in conjunction with other equally high calibre components, will allow you with the press of a button, to hear the full sound of music so akin to the actual performance that only the most expert ear can detect the difference.
The Troubador system is designed to produce sound, magnificent in person sound, from stereophonic and standard vinyl records.
Long life and trouble free operation are guaranteed for the 598 by an ingenious turntable design that involves only two moving parts, a powerful hysteresis synchronous motor and a heavy aluminium turntable platter individually balanced to the peak of perfection.
Finally, the handsome and functional looks will enhance any room.
This is the worlds most perfect record playback system.
