Mission 775SM


The Mission 775SM is a heavyweight turntable with unsprung plinth, machined alloy platter and AC Synchronous motor.

The turntable comes fitted with the GB Tools manufactured 774SM tonearm.

The turntable was conceived of and designed after three years of research and development work, gathering data and constantly re-appraising the question of what was actually required from an ideal turntable, and how different manufacturers had tackled the problem.
