Audio-Technica LPW40WN (Walnut Plinth)
In-store Clearance item
Traditional design meets quality engineering
There are plenty of retro turntables on the market, but few of them can match the pedigree of the Audio Technica AT-LPW40WN – let alone its sound quality. By combining a traditional, walnut finish with the highest quality engineering – including a carbon fibre tonearm – this turntable gives you vintage style without the compromised sound.
Anti-resonance base for solid sound
Getting the best sound from your records relies on isolating the deck from vibrations. Rather than plastic, the AT-LPW40WN uses anti-resonant MDF (Medium Density Fibreboard). This gives both rigidity and vibration absorption, for the lowest levels of distortion. Isolation feet and a rubber mat provide further protection from harmful vibrations.
Fully adjustable, carbon fibre tonearm
Constructed from carbon fibre, the matte-finish tonearm doesn’t just look the part, it sounds it, too. Carbon fibre makes the tonearm extremely rigid, meaning it helps the cartridge to track as accurately as possible and resists distortion. The tonearm comes with a detachable headshell, adjustable tracking force and anti-skating settings – letting you easily adjust the tonearm to suit a huge range of potential cartridge upgrades. Not that you need to be in a hurry to upgrade the cartridge...
Supplied with the award-winning AT-VM95E cartridge
Another bonus with this high quality turntable is the supplied cartridge – the class-leading AT-VM95E. Featuring an elliptical stylus, the Audio Technica AT-VM95E is a great upgrade over most standard cartridges. Compared to more basic conical cartridges, the elliptical stylus on the VM95E literally gets deeper into the groove – pulling out more music.
Connect to almost any hi-fi – with built-in phono pre-amp
With a phono pre-amp built-in, the AT-LPW40WN connects to almost any hi-fi or speaker system. The phono pre-amp boosts the signal to line level, meaning you can connect it to any device with an AUX input. If you’d rather use your amp’s phono pre-amp, then simply switch off the turntable’s one.
Enjoy your vinyl on a turntable that offers style and substance, with the Audio Technica AT-LPW40WN.
