Realistic LAB-290


The Realistic LAB-290 Precision Belt Drive Turntable uses the latest in audio technology to give the superior sound reproduction audiophiles demand.

A powerful DC servo motor delivers unwavering, perfect speed and instant acceleration.

The belt drive system absorbs the slightest vibration of the motor to give excellent signal-to-noise ratio.

The straight line arm maintains the stylus of the cartridge at the correct angle to the radius of the groove over the full surface of the record — which means low distortion and excellent tracking at less than 3 grams.

The turntable comes complete with a Vertical Moving Magnet type cartridge with 0.4 x 0.7 mil diamond stylus that faithfully produces frequencies between 20 to 20,000 Hz while maintaining superb channel separation.
