Combining superb sound with style and ultimate connectivity, the Elipson Chroma 400 RIAA BT gets the best from your vinyl – whatever the system.

Designed for the digital age, with Bluetooth connectivity
Bluetooth connectivity means that you can connect up to your choice of Bluetooth speaker or Bluetooth-equipped Hi-Fi, wirelessly. Simply pair the turntable with your speaker and enjoy fuss-free connectivity with a range of around 10m. Compatible with aptX, the streaming quality is closer to a wired connection than standard Bluetooth.

Archive your records via USB
Further bridging old and new technologies is a USB socket. Connect the Chroma 400 RIAA BT to your PC or Mac and, using your choice of software, you can record all your LPs to MP3. From here, simply load them on to your MP3 player or NAS drive, record on to CD or just have the discs archived on your computer, making your LPs more accessible than ever.

Connect more - Built-in phono stage
Equipped with a built-in RIAA pre-amp (phono stage), the Chroma 400 RIAA BT also connects via its cable to just about any Hi-Fi system. Provided your music system has an AUX input, the Chroma connects, without needing an extra pre-amp to give it the correct volume.

Stylish good looks and choice of finish
Curved edges and a high gloss, acrylic lacquer finish make the Chroma 400 RIAA BT a thing of beauty before you’ve even listened to it. Choose between gloss black, white or red, for the best match with your lifestyle. The quality of design continues to the smallest details, such as the aluminium centraliser and neat toggle switch.

New, digital drive motor for sonic precision
With a revised motor, suspension and electronic control, the Chroma 400 RIAA BT delivers superb speed precision, giving you perfect stability and precision of sound. The revised motor is also quieter, letting you hear the most subtle parts of your favourite music. As well as the new motor, the platter is now a two-part design, improving speed consistency and pitch accuracy, for a more lifelike sound.

Carbon fibre tonearm
Another great improvement made to the Chroma 400 RIAA BT is the upgrade to a carbon fibre tonearm tube. Usually only found on more expensive turntables, a carbon fibre tonearm tube provides significant benefits to the sound quality. Being stiffer than steel, the tone arm is more rigid. This helps reproduce the music more accurately as there's reduced arm resonance. Simply put, the music sounds tighter, punchier and more detailed than before.

Supplied with the legendary Ortofon OM10 cartridge
Highly respected as one of the best cartridges in its class, the supplied Ortofon OM10 gets you off to the best of starts. Smooth yet detailed-sounding, the OM10 sounds great with a wide range of music and won’t harm your precious vinyl like lesser cartridges can.

Enjoy your vinyl to a high standard, fuss-free, with the Elipson Chroma 400 RIAA BT.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good sound but poor design I wanted a Bluetooth deck so I could use headphones. This seemed like the best Richer had to offer. However, after 2 weeks, I had to get it exchanged. First the good points. Initially it sounded great. It looked fantastic. It was made solidly. Now the bad points. The BT pairing key is tiny and it is hidden on the back of the unit. The pairing process was complex and took several attempts/resets. Twice, on random occasions during the middle of a record, the BT dropped out and I had to go through the reset/re-pair sequence again. I was surprised by the build quality too. The steel platter was not concentric; the hole was not central. It didn't affect the record playing but the platter seemed to be 'wobbling' as it rotated. Not a good look for a £600 deck. The final straw was the clunk it developed from the central spindle. After about 2 weeks of daily use, an intermittent, audible clunk began which slowly got more frequent. I videoed the problem and got in touch with RS who were great. They immediately offered me a full refund, a replacement or an alternative. I cannot fault their customer service. I went for a much cheaper Sony alternative (and partial refund) and that has been great so far. Overall, I was disappointed by this deck and it only goes to show that price is no guarantee of quality.
