Rotel RP1000


The Rotel RP1000 features a 4-pole, synchronous drive motor to maintain revolutions at exact speeds.

The belt-drive system enhances noise free rotation with simple but precise mechanical construction.

A heavy and durable aluminium, die-cast turntable platter assures maximum stability and minimum wow and flutter.

The long, S-shaped tonearm of the RP1000 is statically balanced and made for perfect lateral placement and accurate tracking.

The tonearm is fitted with a professional headshell that will handle any type of cartridge with precision, and a magnetic cartridge with diamond stylus is included.
