Garrard A70


The new A70 automatic turntable is a perfect expression of the Garrard philosophy.

Those who are familiar with the great Garrard reputation for unassailable integrity will recognize in the Type A70 certain familiar proven features which have become indivisible from the Garrard name.

The most notable of these is the pusher platform automatic record changing principle - a classic mechanism which has never been equalled, much less surpassed, for gentleness or reliability.

However, traditional features are only half the story if the Type A70, for this is also the newest and most advanced of all automatic turntables.

For example, the exciting tonearm is but one of a number of innovations which confirm how successfully Garrard have re-engineered the classic unit, advanced beyond all other automatic turntables, and reconfirmed it as the definitive record player for the finest music systems.
