1. Acoustic solid wood MPX
This audiophile turntable weighs in at 35kg. It’s not all wood; the 60mm string-driven platter is aluminium, with a leather protective mat. The chassis, however, is a fat, 70mm-deep piece of plywood with cherry veneer. This helps give the Wood MPX its rich, natural resonance and accurate stereo image when listening to, say, Justin Timberlake.
