Turntables helped usher in the modern day world of high performance home audio. With some prized vinyl record collections dating back to the onset of hi-fi two-channel stereo, a McIntosh turntable will be able to deliver all the subtle nuances that your vinyl records contain. McIntosh turntables combine our classic design with modern styling elements, creating a unique piece to add to your stereo system. Magnets are used again to stabilize the tone arm, stopping the arm from skipping across the beloved vinyl record without making any sound at all. McIntosh’s aim was to bring out the sound of any vinyl record while at the same time trying to eliminate any mechanical noises and imperfections from the turntable itself. To do so, the designers have used magnets to keep the platter and the arm stable on a silent floating bed.
