Elipson Audio has announced the introduction of their first ever range of turntables. Entirely designed, developed and manufactured by Elipson in France, the Alpha and Omega versions are said to be the world’s “first premium turntables offering the option of wireless technology whilst retaining audiophile specification and sound quality”.ELI-alpha_50-2-BK

The new Elipson turntable can work on any voltage and any frequency in the world, from 100-240V and 50-60Hz and boasts “Digital Sinusoidal Signal Synthesis” which ensures optimum RPM. Speed is automatically controlled and a “digital slope” is employed to avoid belt skating and ensure motor reliability. The “Motor Suspension Device” is an additional device designed to suspend the motor and eliminate vibration.

Compatible with all MM/MC cartridges, Elipson has also developed its own Orbital Torsion Tone-arm which they say offers perfect precision, whilst integral torsion adjustment is controllable for anti-skating.

The RIAA preamps featured on the top models in each Alpha and Omega ranges feature an integrated preamp/phono-stage, whilst the flagship models also feature a Bluetooth APTX wireless transceiver, allowing the listener to stream their vinyl to a BT speaker system … or you can transfer the signal via the Opto-isolated USB output and record your vinyl onto a Mac or PC.elipson_omega_12

There’s a total of seven models in the line up.  The entry level OM50 features a matt black finish PVC chassis with a pressed steel plate and Ortofon’s OM5 cartridge.  The Alpha range features a similar spec but uses an OM10 cartridge, polyamide centralizer, RCA interconnects and preamp with BT and USB options.  Top of the range Omega versions boast an acrylic lacquer non-scratch finish chassis in gloss black, white or red, a high density glass plate, a machined aluminum centraliser, a Carbon fibre tone-arm together with the pre-amp and BT /USB options.

Elipson’s new turntable range will be officially launched in Room 412 at the forthcoming Sound & Vision Bristol on 26th February and available thereafter from March 2016.  UK SRPs will range from £199 for the entry level Alpha 50 up to £499 for the flagship Omega 100 RIAA BT USB model.
