The original version of the Axis came fitted with the Linn Basik LVX+ tonearm, while later decks benefited from the improved Akito mkI.

Drive method: belt drive

Motor: AC synchronous

Speed control: electronic push button control

Speeds: 33.33 and 45rpm


The Axis is happiest simply playing music, something it does rather well, and with the absolute minimum of fuss - HFW January 1998

A neat, attractive and well made package which delivers a rather harsh sound with a one note effect in the bass, but it's well suited to mid market systems - £443 (with Akito tonearm) HiFi Choice 1992
