Product Description

The Akai Professional BT-500 Black is a premium belt drive turntable with 2 speeds, 33rpm and 45rpm, that combines the no compromise audiophile perfomance with modern technology such as USB to PC vinyl conversion and wireless Bluetooth streaming. The Akai Professional BT-500 Black is the best of both worlds and should please anyone who uses it.

Responding to the rapidly growing demand for high-performance turntables in the resurgent vinyl market, the BT-500 Black offers the record enthusiast a unit with no-compromise audiophile performance and luxurious, elegant styling.

However, in addition to its superlative basic turntable performance, the BT-500 Black offers a unique combination of modern digital technology and convenience features that sets it apart from anything else: The BT-500 Black is a wireless streaming turntable, so it can send the turntable's signal to any Bluetooth speaker (not incl.). It has a built-in switchable phono pre-amp so it can be used with a traditional stereo or connected directly to powered speakers. The BT-500 Black also boasts the ability to convert analogue records into digital files with its included on-board software and USB port for quick connection to any computer.

Of course, its basic turntable performance is beyond reproach: it has a quiet belt-drive system with a mechanically-isolated motor that eliminates any residual motor noise and vibration, a heavy die-cast aluminium platter that ensures an exemplary signal-to-noise ratio, a drive system with vanishingly low wow and flutter and a low-mass straight tonearm with precision damped cueing. The unique levelling bubble with adjustable feet ensures a perfectly level installation for optimum sound. A high-quality premounted magnetic cartridge completes the package.

Here we have the Akai Professional BT-500 Black in new and manufacturer refurbished which will come boxed 'as new' with a 1-year warranty. Buy this amazing BT-500 Black with confidence with 100% satisfaction guaranteed or your money back!
