G 2000 R - TURNTABLE
Contrary to all the predictions, the vinyl disc has managed to sustain and even consolidate its right to exist over a period of several decades. Back in the 1990’s, when the medium was almost completely swamped by the CD, there were many who lamented its lost qualities; especially the almost tactile sound, with its subjectively warmer nature. In comparison with the CD there is no doubt that vinyl is impractical and space-consuming, but precisely for this reason it had something which the new media lacked: a distinctive character. The old R-series G 1260 R turntable was a very successful design, and we have carried out further development work on it and introduced a number of improvements. The unit now joins the new R-series as a means of reproducing high-quality analogue sound media, capable of setting standards with its sound quality and its unique design features. Although the vinyl disc is an »old« medium, modern turntables have to be designed and developed with great sophistication if the full potential of the disc is to be exploited. For this reason we concentrated on minimising all external mechanical and electrical influences. One area of development aimed at designing a drive motor for the G 2000 R which was completely consistent and smooth-running; another was the creation of an overall system which was totally damped in order to minimise structural sound, resonance effects and vibration. The result of our labours is superb sound: absolutely transparent, extremely dynamic and forceful. Our turntable is available in various versions. We strongly recommend the installation of our PH G10 phono pre-amplifier module in the turntable chassis itself. As standard we install a modified pressure-cast aluminium tone arm made by Rega, fitted with the Ortofon 2M Bronze moving magnet system, but a High-End version featuring a modified tone arm and MC pickup from Clearaudio is also available. Naturally we can also supply the G 2000 R without arm or pickup if you prefer.
