Rik Stoet TT level2.1
The NEW Takumi TT level2.1 has only ONE thing in common with its predecessor: It really really sounds great! This new 2017 model is improved in every aspect: bearing, arm, motor and feet. There is no other turntable that offers this sound AND look in...
This new turntable was introduced on the X-Fi show 2017 in room 33. It has been playing with Nuprime amplification on Stirling Broadcast LS3/5Av2. The phonostage was the 2SE from Graham Slee. The response of the listeners were very positive, many of them were surprised how such an affordable set could make music like this.
Thin wall titanium armtube
Close tolerance ceramic main bearing
Acrylic 30cm platter
Vibration-damped feet, height adjustable
Ortofon 2Mred cartridge (upgrade possible)
As standard the Takumi is supplied with a 2Mred cartridge from Ortofon. This cartridge gives great results, less would be wasting the potential of the Takumi. If you are willing to spend a little bit more, then the Ortofon 2Mblue will give much better results. The secret is in the stylus shape, it fits better in the groove and has less contact with the upper parts of the records. You will have the same character of sound but less noise and ticks from the record surface.
When upgrading to the Ortofon 2Mbronze is possible for you (pricewise), you will be rewarded with a more involving character and a wide and open soundstage. The Takumi and the 2Mbronze make a very beautiful combination. Highly recomended!
